I got in a swim and a spin on my bike today, but certainly not the way I expected...

Home to Hawes/Bush/Usery 72.39 mi 04:10 17.4mph pace

Had these elaborate plans to get up early, go to swim workout, then head over to bike. Well my alarm went off, I shut it off, and slept another 3 hours. Had a lazy morning, then decided to head out just before 10am. The weather was really fantastic, and I felt great for ~90% of the time (Bush Hwy was my ~10%). Heck, I had a guy just ahead on Usery, and after Bush that never seems quite so bad. I had been leaning toward skipping Tucson, but now maybe I'll give it a shot, who knows.

then later today I went to the PM swim workout at Kino:

warm-up sets:
400 swim
300 kick (did 25 flutter/25 dolphin), w/fins + board
300 pull (buoy only)
100 swim

6 x 100 @ 1:30, desc 1-3/4-6

main set, 3 rounds of: (I wore fins the whole thing)
2 x 50 kick @ 1:00
8 x 25 @ :40, no breath
2 x 75 back @ 1:20
2 x 25 fly @ :30

200 w/d

TTL: 3400 yards

the water felt so wonderful when I dove in. I suddenly felt really fast, and I realized that I didn't put on a drag suit. amazing the difference it makes without.

that main set was deceptively difficult. the 25s no breath were a challenge. no I didn't make all of them, but I did make a few here/there, and it felt good once I did.
heck, the fly actually felt kinda smooth too.

only 3 of us there, with 1 coach, so there was no hiding.
