I did get to spin class at the Chandler 24 Hour last night.
same instructor, but MUCH better music. it is really amazing how that makes such a difference. 2 notable songs were a souped up/dance version of, "Thunderstruck," and Lenny Kravitz, "It's not over till it's over."

after spin, I did a very easy 300 swim, then about 10 min of stretching in the hot tub, then another 100 easy swim.
I have no idea how the heck I did any kind of swim workout after spin last week.

got up to Kino for the AM swim workout today, and it was LCM again

300 w/u

16 x 50 @ 1:00, w/fins, done 3 swim/1 kick

4 x 400 @ 6:30, desc 1-4 (4th was about 6:10)

4 x 50 kick @ 1:00, w/fins + board

4 x 200 @ 3:30, desc 1-4, w/fins + paddles (4th was about 2:50)

200 w/d

TTL: 3900m

I really felt the effects of doing spin last night. I started those 400s very very easy, but still had some people who are usually a bit slower passing me (in the next lane), especially on the last.
the 200s weren't quite as bad, but still noticeable.

I must have been slow enough that after workout a few others asked if I was ok.
even with fins (or maybe especially with fins), with tired legs, I just wasn't getting too much extra traction.

not too bad of a set, although I wasn't especially pleased when Paul first told us the 400s. something about knowing you'll have 1600m right off the bat just doesn't sit well. although after 3 of them, knowing just 1 left, I felt much better.
