I woke up this morning feeling crappy. I felt like I had not slept - I must have checked the clock at least 6 times, plus opened the windows due to my overheating. And when the alarm woke me at 6, it was one of those days where I just wanted to lay there. I was sore, still, and my body is just tired. And my throat was bothering me a bit. I know...lots of complaining. But then I went to the pool. I was thinking that this probably is not such a good idea for today, but it turned out to be one of the better workouts I've had. I was thrilled.
My stroke still didn't feel great, but I was rotating my shoulders a bit more and that seemed to help me keep my pace going. I warmed up and then did 5x200's on 3:15 - times were 2:43, 2:43, 2:41, 2:41 and 2:38 (i hadn't been there since last year). Then after a quick stretch, did 5x100's on 1:45 and held 1:17, 1:17, 1:16, 1:17 and 1:16...my arms and legs were tired after this, but I had to finish with one more main set to round it out. Last one was 5x50's on 1 minute - times were :37/:37/:37/:36/:36. I was really happy with today's swim - ttl yards 3500.
2nd workout: 250 squats for time....5:41. Beat last time by 4 seconds. I'll take it. Calgon take me away...after i get some shoveling done. :)
