Tomorrow I’m taking off for a 4 day trip to San Diego. I’m going to see friends in LA Friday night and then hang out and do touristy stuff in SD Saturday through Monday. I managed to sneak some swimming into my schedule which I am excited about.
Tomorrow my first stop is Thousand Oaks. I’m planning on dropping in and swimming with my adopted team, Conejo Simi Masters. This will be my first organized workout with other people and a coach since I was about 17! I have a feeling that I am going to get a beat down… I do interval training in my workouts but my rests tend to linger a little bit. I’ve been training all by myself for about 6 or 7 months now so I’m really interested to see what kind of feed back Coach Nancy has for me. She’s given me some direction based on my racing, but she’s never seen me swim more than 100 meters at a time. I know there’s some stuff that I must be doing wrong but I can’t self diagnose it so this should be eye opening.
The rest of Friday and all of Saturday I’m going to be hanging out with Heidi between LA and SD. We might do SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo or something like that, depends on how we feel when we get there. Sunday I’m entered in the Pancake Pentathlon at the Mission Valley YMCA. I’m swimming the 100 fly/back/breast/free and the 200 IM. After the meet it’s more touristing for me and then a monster drive home on Monday.
Tonight I swam 1600 yards. I wanted to swim some yardage, but I didn’t want to wear myself out too much before my workout with CSAM.
4 x 50 fly
4 x 50 back
4 x 50 breast
4 x 50 free (real fast)
200 cool down
1600 yards total
I’ll be on the move a lot the next few days but I’ll try to update the blog if I have time. Otherwise you can always follow me on Twitter and see what I’m up to!
