the usual 700 variety swim, kick, drill
16 x 15 UW shooters w/new MF, took 8-9 SDKs per 25, pretty slow and drilly
2 x 25 EZ speed fly, felt like crap
5 x (25 AFAP back + 50 EZ)
(I seem to recall I did something else, but these "workouts" are so ridiculously dull and boring, I can barely stay awake during them.)
Tried out my new MF today. Because it's quite a bit longer than my shooter MF, it felt very odd. It might take some time to get used to. At only 8-9 kicks per length, I think it's much better for long course. I'll try it out there next week.
I'm still having issues with cramping. I cramped on my backstroke start this weekend. After mulling it over, I think I might be slightly dehydrated. I try to drink a lot of water, but may still need more ... I drink very little water in the evening, then wake up and drink coffee. Perhaps I need more electrolytes as well. So I think I'll be pounding more gatorade and water the next few days.
My deltoids feel very tight. WTH? I've been practically comatose for a week. Shouldn't they be happy and rested? I'm blaming the 200 back. lol
