This was the most I have ever spent in a pool. This was a lot of swimming. I started around 6 am to allow myself to sleep in bit. This was my only workout for the day to give my body time to rest for the Bix.
Here is what I did and I was quite proud of this workout.
200 free @ 3:45
200 pull @ 3:43
200 kick @ 4:05
2500 yard swim. I finally became smart and switched my watch to run mode and recorded each 100 yard swim. This allowed me to not worry about keeping count. I felt good the whole swim until about the last 600 yards. Then I started to get tired, but I held on to finish at a consistent pace. With one last 100 to go a guy was waiting to share my lane and when I hit the wall he tapped my shoulder and I about pooped my pants. It scared me to death as I was just focused with finishing strong. Needless to say I had a huge adrenaline surge the last 2 minutes of swimming.
Time: 48:20 with average 100 of 1:51
Main Set #2
I was tired and was not sure if I would be able to finish this workout as I did not want to overdo it and be wiped out for the Bix tomorrow. So, I had scheduled 1200 yards with paddles. I decided to give my legs a break and used paddles with the pull buoy. This was a great upper body workout. Whew!
1200 yards with paddles and pull buoy @ 21:28
Cool Down 200 kick with board @ 4:10
Total Yards: 4500
Total Time: 1:25:33
I saw a lot of people come and go in the pool. Now it is on to painting, staining, cleaning, and finally watching the kids run the Bix tonight. Happy Friday to all.
