I had a restless sleep last night. I periodically get very hot during the night and have a hard time getting to sleep and last night was one of those nights. I was tired when I woke up but felt fine after I got up and moving.
I had a physical for insurance at work so had to limit my food intake(they asked that I fast but thats impossible if I swim and I was not giving up a practice today). I felt great in the water and my shoulder felt the best its felt in quite some time. I still plan on setting up an appointment with the orthopedic doctor though just to get it checked out.
400 free with snorkel
6x50 catchup on :45
10x300 pull on 3:30
4x200 kick on 3:30
8x50 drill on 1min
I really tried relaxing during the 300s and descended from 3:10 to 3:05 over the course of the set. I am trying to work on my turns and streamline off the wall. In particular I am trying to not breath with my first stroke off the wall so that I stay streamlined longer and hopefully gain a little speed on my turns(which again I am reminded are plentiful in scy as compared to LCM). I felt great on the 200s kick and was out in 1:25's and back in 1:27s on all 4. I have not felt this easy on a kick set in quite some time.
I will practice at our pool tomorrow and then I am heading to Detroit with work for the rest of the week. I will be swimming with Skip Thompson at the Dearbourn, MI, outdoor pool like I did earlier in the summer. It was fun then and I am looking forward to swimming LCM again.
