Today was sunny, cloudless, and low humidity; a great Indiana day!
I'm having a rough week swimming. I feel stiff, unnatural, and choppy....oh tired too. I have been steadily building yardage and intensity since April. Last week I hit an all-time high for speed and distance. I guess this week must be the payback. I am working through it and doing this weeks scheduled practices, it's just a big confidence sucker for me.
I am going to sort of taper for Nats but my race of focus will be "Big Shoulders" ow in September.
I am more interested in meeting (in person) all the forumites and bloggers than swimming the races. I'd call that a bad attitude but a good plan.
I HEARD TODAY that there will be no 6th event at Nats. I guess that means there's a good turnout!
Here's today's LCM workout:
*200 Free swim wu
*200 Kick (100 flutter/100 dolphin back)
*2 X 100 ez stretch (back/free)
*Factorial (at least that's what we call them Qbrain)8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 (30 sec rest between each swim)
*8 X 50 Free on 1:15 (Paddles on 3/4, 7/8)
*4 X 50 free on 1:00 (sprint)
*200 IM cooldown
I just heard Phelps got a wr in 100 Fly! I should have gone down there....I just get lazy, relaxed, and stay home. I don't think the Natatorium serves chardonnay.
