So I got to the Loyola gym tonight around 530pm...and there was a lot of commotion around the windows that look into the swimming pool where the varsity team was practicing. I figured they were doing the barf set and people were just gawking at that mess.
Went and did my weight routine which I will actually explain better tomorrow or Thursday, because I have a lot of work I need to get done tonight still.
As I was doing my weights some kid came over and asked if we could split reps on a machine and while he was waiting for me to finish my rep he was talking to his buddy and they were kinda whispering. Bottomline, they wanted to know if each other had seen Michael Phelps in the pool. So in other words, Michael Phelps being back in town and making his appearances= Loyola Athletic center= place to be. Everyone was an athlete today...let me tell you.
I think it's kinda of annoying...he swam with the varsity team--which I have been told is an insurance issue--I can't swim with the varsity team--because I'm not on the team and therefore the schools insurance doesn't cover me. I understand he's Michael Phelps...but still. That isn't really what annoys me...he must really like the attention though haha...to come from his pool to ours and be gawked and gaped at by hundreds of college girls and boys.
But anyways, after my weights I ran 1mile and walked .65miles. I went for a fast run this time rather than the 2miles I have been running at a little slower pace.
Then it was time for swim practice:
4x75: drill, kick, swim choice stroke @1:40
4=4second hesitation backstroke
4=3-2-1 backstroke drill
5x[75, 50, 25, 25, 50, 75] @25sec base
1. every shallow-deep lap =free, every deep-shallow lap=breast
2.75s moderate, 50build, 25 sprint freestyle
3. every shallow-deep lap =free, every deep-shallow lap=back
4. choice (freestyle)
20x25 kick (2 free, 2back, 2 breast and repeat) @30
4x50 sprint kick @1:45
200 warm down
