700 variety warm up
10 x 50 on 1:05, alternate backstroke kick and backstroke, moderate pace
8 x 25, alternate easy speed fly and easy
4 x 25 AFAP free, 50 easy after each 25
Resting is very odd. I absolutely hate resting and miss all my cross training, especially running on sunny days like today. But when I cut back and do nothing but some sprinting and recovery swimming in the pool, I seem to get really lazy and can't wait to get out of the water from even my short little swim ... Seems like a complete waste of time. I was even daydreaming about a nap today. Need to get back to regular training. Or I'll be an even bigger tank than Puff is becoming!
A friend commented that she couldn't believe I was resting this week for 3 events. I thought that was plenty of events for one day! Although I do really wish I was swimming both days of the meet this weekend.
Fly still feels like crap. Not sure why.
Think I need to do more overkicking freestyle drills. I'm a pretty fast flutter kicker, but don't think I'm getting anywhere near max kick when I'm sprinting free. And Hulk has told me this too.
Still haven't heard from the Zones meet director via email. Will check the psych sheets again.
