In spite of the opinion of others that recovery workouts are just junk yards, I still do them. I like having the option of working the sets that I want to work and just swimming through the rest of the workout, especially on those days when I'm tired or sore from previous workouts.
The pool temperature has come down a bit from what it was at the beginning of the week. 86° today. That's about the best I can hope for because of the old ladies and noodlers that use the pool.
500 swim free
400 pull free breathe 3
(used buoy only)
300 IM drill
(did this as k/d/s for each stroke)
swim 3 x 200 back on 3:30 smooth
swim 12 x 25 on 35: 3x around, 1 of each, IM order
kick 4 x 100 w/15 sec. rest
(all on back no fins. 7-8 sdk off each wall then flutter)
pull 10 x 50 on 55: odds breathe 3, evens breathe 5
(again with buoy only)
