Today’s workout was really good, but I just didn’t have the requisite speed or endurance for the back half of it! We started out with a short set of 75′s that was actually really challenging/interesting. Basically you kick as hard as you can for a 25, swim as hard as you can for a 25, and then cruise the last 25. It really confuses your body which probably means that it was good for me. After that we did a big string of 50′s and finished with 13 100′s. This is where I started having trouble. The first half was fine, the interval wasn’t an issue. Once we got to the 3rd 100 on 1:20 I started to fall behind. I shouldn’t have but I did. I just couldn’t muster up the speed to keep up. I skipped a 50 in there to get back on track with the rest of the faster group. I still wasn’t exactly making the intervals but I was at least back on track enough. I think I’m just really tired from all the stuff I’ve been doing recently. September and October have been a total blur and Saturday will be my 3rd meet this month! I’m really looking forward to the following weekend where I have absolutely nowhere to be!

Here’s today’s workout:
