FRIDAY I was tired. I didn't swim but I made myself go out and run 42:00 minutes. I didn't enjoy it and just went downhill and slothed the rest of the night. I'm too old to push myself when I'm tired I guess.
SATURDAY morning I got up and went to Nasti's. This was a shorter "sprint" type quality workout. I was tired AGAIN from the start.
Here's the workout:
*600 Freestyle warm-up
*4 X 100 on 2:00 (add 20% of best 100 time for goal. If slower than goal subtract the extra from next rep and go faster, yeah right?) I did all 4 freestyle in 1:25 without fail. I used bi-lateral breathing the whole time and it's starting to feel normal.
*200 moderate swim. I did backstroke.
*3 X 100 on 2:00 (same gimmick as above) I went backstroke. splits were 1:28/1:30/1:35. I thought that was good for me. I've never done backstroke. I've decided to work on it this year for a new and different challenge
*10 X 25 on :30 from the middle of the pool and back. Work the underwaters.
*3 X 100 on 2:00 Yes same gimmick again) This time I did IM's. I didn't pay attention to my times
*4 X 25 Free on :30 no breathing. (I worked on speedy breathing every 5)
*200 EZ cool-down
2,350 scy

I'm gonna go make tastee tuscan bean soup and chocolate kiss blossom cookies! The thought makes me hungry.
