I'm sitting here during the time I alotted to make my sub plans for the week I'll be gone doing anything except what I'm supposed to be doing.
I've got White Chicken Chili and Regular Style chili cooking downstairs for dinner! Yummmmmmm!
It's snowing out! One of those beautiful, large fluffy types of snows! I think we're getting 4 inches.
Today's Swim: (nuthin special at all)
*I missed the warm-up (talking to people)
*4 X 200 Free on 3:30
*4 X (100 on 1:45/ 3 x 50 on 1 minute) i did all free
*Super 500 on :30 per 25 pace
*400 backstroke cool-down
I think I have a plan in mind to train for the 10K swim in July. I am going to start doing 1 longer workout each week (starting with 5,000 tomorrow). Everything else during the week will remain 2,500-3,500. Each month I will increase the long workout by 500 yds.
In May I will assess how I feel (7,000 yds) and possibly slow down to every other weeks long workout. In June I would be up to a 7,500 workout. I really have no intentions of doing a 10,000 meter workout. My rational is that I never ran marathons to train for a marathon so the same should go for swimming. Also I am mostly just training to finish, no fast times expected here at all.
Let me know if you think my plan is not going to work!
