Yeah, I once again got up rather than turning my alarm off. Felt like when it went off and wanted to more. However, one does not get in shape by sleeping.
So I got in a few minutes late. Did a 200 swim, 200 kick as a warm-up.
Then we did 4 x 75 (50 drill/50 build) swam the first 2 sans fins then put them on for the 3rd and 4th ones but swam.
3 x 300 descend to 80% did these all kick with long fins. Really tried to push #3 and the legs were hurting a bit.
6 x 150 descend 1&2 @ 75% 3&4 @ 80% 5&6 @ 85% I did these swim with fins.
100 ez c/d
Shoulder is a bit pissy now. Took some advil and am resting it as much as is possible. I'm hoping to ice it later tonight provided I get home at a reasonable hour.
Due to comments made by coworkers I am inspired to share what I am eating ...
I ate a mini cliff bar en route to practice this am.
After practice I had a small organic chocolate milk, a grande skinny vanilla latte, 2 whole wheat blueberry waffles and a HUGE bowl of strawberries, yougurt and almond granola. I've also been drinking a ton of water.
Snack: string cheese and cheez-itz
Lunch is two packets of tuna with some lowfat mayo on a whole sliced tomato. 1 piece of string cheese and mangos.
The rest is tbd ...
I need to get some weekday runs in ... I'm thinking Monday/Wednesday and then again on Saturday. Spin class fits in well on Thursdays right now. Not sure I can get it in elsewhere which is a bummer. Maybe Tuesdays if I can run out of work early. Also contemplating getting up early on Fridays (we don't swim) and doing a run. Hmmm ...
Still need to factor weights in - definitely once the season gets closer and the shoulder gets healthier.
Time to get some actual work done!
