I wasn’t really sure who was and wasn’t going to be at the pool today so I made sure to have a workout with me in case no one else did. Once I got on deck no one had a plan so we defaulted to the post it note in my swim bag. I think they’re liking this whole Rob bringing a workout thing, they’re just not necessarily liking the workouts WHILE we’re doing them :) I guess that means they’re good! Today was a borrowed workout from a friend modified a little bit for time and speed.
3 x 100 IM @ 1:45
6 x 50 @:50
2 x 200 @ 3:00 descending 1-2
12 x 50 1-4 @ 1:00, 5-8 @ :50, 9-12 @ :45
3000 yards total
I have no idea what has happened to me, but the fly on those 3 (only 3!) hundred IMs was kinda kicking my ass. I need to phase more butterfly back into the rotation. Luckily the Summer of Fly showdown is kind of melting into Fall since me and Mike keep have been having schedule issues. There’s 3 races left, 150, 175 and 200… I am so not ready for that!
Besides not being so hot butterflytastically, I’m feeling really good in the water. I felt nice and smooth last night in the ocean, and both of this week’s pool swims have been strong and steady. I’m hoping I can hang on to that feeling through the weekend. I’m racing a mile at Corona Del Mar on Saturday and then swimming a yet to be determined distance with my kayaker for the upcoming Distance Swim Challenge. We’re going to do some laps around Naples Island in Long Beach which will be cool because I’ve never done the long swim when I race Naples Island so I’ll finally get to see the outside of the island. Plus we’ll get to feel each other out a little bit so we’re more comfortable with each other out in the water once the 12.6 miler comes up in October.
