I've been in the pool fairly consistent of late, though not blogging about most of it. Probably swimming 3 days a week for the most part, but I'm trying to ramp it up a bit for my upcoming USAS meet here in two weeks.

I went in this morning to swim again with Jared, who is great to train with, though he didn't show up this morning...his mom said he'd be there tonight, and since I wasn't working, I made plans to come for a second swim.

A.M. workout:
10 x 100 Free @ 1:30 warmup

8 x 100 flutter kick w/ board @ 1:55 (held 1:35s)

10 x 100 Free Pull (75 Pull/25 Scull) @ 1:30 (1:25s)

8 x 25 Fly @ :30
1;00 rest
8 x 25 Fly @ :30

100 EZ

3300 Yards in the morning


PM Workout 5:00 pm:
This was with Jared...he was my rabbit, but I also kept him going too. He trains solo now too, and welcomes the training buddy.

1000 warmup

4 x 400 Free @ Desc Interval (5:10, 5:00, 4:50, 4:40)
I went 4:35/4:38/4:40/4:43
Jared was about 1/2 a length ahead of me till the last one when he was nearly a full 25 up on me. I'll let it slide though...he's only 16. I was a hurting mother by the end of this, but it was good.

100 EZ

400 Free broken at 25s w/ pushups
1st length, 1 pushup
2nd length, 2 pushups
etc., etc. Up to 16 lengths

We started dying around length #10, over halfway done with the swim, yet barely into the heavy back half of the dry land. Couldn't actually do all pushups in each series without a break or two!

6 x 100 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:55 cruise

100 EZ

3700 Yards

7000:Yards for the day, and a god-awful amount of pushups!!
