It was a frigidly gloomy and gusty day in central Indiana. I headed off to Carmel Aquatic Center to do a long (for me) workout. I am gradually building 1 longer workout into my swim week in preparation for the 10K (national championship) ow swim the Nasti's are hosting this summer. My main goal (as I have mentioned before) is to finish and not hurt myself or burnout in the process. A couple Nasti's (who are way better swimmer's than me) and a couple runner friends think I'm starting to build too early. I think (and hope) I am doing this gradually enough to not burnout or suffer much pain.
i intended to go 5,000 yds. today however the pool closed early so I only got 4,200 completed. That was fine; I felt happy with the swim and figure I'll just go a little farther tomorrow!
Here's what I did:
*1,000 warm-up swim on 17:00 interval. (my swim was 15:10)
*4 X 250 Free on 4:15 interval
*8 X 125 Free on 2:15 interval
*100 Flutter Kick w/board no fins
*5 X 100 Free on 1:45 interval
*100 Flutter Kick w/board and no fins
*10 X 75 on 1:30 interval alternating free/back swims
*5 X 50 Free on 1:00 cool-down swim
4,700 scy Wow I just realized I went further than I thought! Anyway it was a good wo for me!
I ran into some former Carmel now college swimmers today at Carmel! Always fun to see former students. There were 2 different private schools working out at CAC today. I ended up swimming next to the Brebeuf High School Team. I thought about hanging with their workout but I was afraid I might annoy the coach. I just did my own solo thing!
Enjoyed a tall White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks post swimming!
