It was a crowded morning at the Y pool this morning, and I'm glad I had some others set up to do a good circle swim workout from the start. We did have some other guy get in with us for a bit, but he moved out quick enough.

omFg, I am a hurting little boy right now!! And that's just from getting out of the pool an hour ago. In fact, I was pretty much done around 6:30am in the middle of the swim, and tried to keep going. I've already hit the Advil bottle early this morning, but probably should've done so prior to the workout! I'll try to make this Monday morning swim a habit though. I was able to swim with Jared (16yrs) and Jordan (a 14 yr. female) this morning. We did basically an IM workout, and it was a killer. This guy had to take a few extra breaks here and there, but I managed.


200 SKIPS (Swim, Kick, IM, Pull, Swim)

8 x 25 Fly @ :40 (SDK to center, 3 strokes, underwater SDK to wall)
8 x 25 Free @ :30 (SDK to center, 3-4 stroke cycles, underwater SDK or flutter to wall)

2 Rounds of:
  • 3 x 300 IM** (No Fly) @ 4:15
  • 6 x 50 Fly Fast @ 1:10

(2400/3800) (2150/3550 my yardage)

500 Free Pull EZ

4300 Yards (4050 Yards for Me)

**On the 3 x 300 IM no flys, I did the first one as is, but came in right on the sendoff, and had to skip a 50 of the back on #2. I just went ahead and did this on the remaining 300s, so did (50 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Free)

On the Fast 50s Fly, 1st round I went :30, :31, then held :32s
On the 2nd round I went :31, :32, :31, :32, :31, :32
Completely dead in the arms and shoulders after this workout! Definitely way harder than doing my normal "all-free cruise around the lap lane" workouts of late.

I did enjoy swimming with the two others, as they definitely pushed me, even if I was playing the caboose for much of the swim! Jordan was surprised that I wasn't going in the lead. I told her I'm a year older, and way more out of shape than last year.
