Yes it is a three-a-day day today!
Began with 2800 this morning at 5am.

IM workout:

600 FR/NF by 100's I did my NF BACKSTROKE, which I enjoyed...I am beginning to think there is something wrong with me
8 x 50 1:00 (2x) 3 x IM transitions & #4 a 50 FR

(4x) 100 FR 2:00; 100 IM 2:00--Felt good for making the ints and not wussing out.
(3x) 100 FR EZ 2:00; 100 NF hard 2:00--I went back to form and did BR.

In the mid morning I hopped in for 1500 more:
4 x 50 Swim with Snorkel
12 x 25 K no fins; w/board on :45 Every 4th AFAP. On the last 50 again I went AFAP without stopping.
8 x 25 IMO :30 Made them all and didn't die!
4 x 50 of each of the following:
Pull: full gear, fins, paddles and snorkels.
Pull: fins & snorkel
Swim: Paddles
Swim: No Gear

Repetitive? Yes. Getting me anywhere? I think so!

Stroke feels really nice--I could be really swimming badly though lol

In the PM:
1.25 mile run.
20 Minutes on Elliptical.
Main group weights:
Leg & calf press; bench press, pull downs
Core work with the yoga ball.

    I think we're on the same path. I find myself, every once in a while, enjoying backstroke when I feel like I'm getting it!

    Nice work Senor Stud!

    Thanks Guys.

    TJ I think your dog's expression says it all for how I feel about backstroke!
