Had a good swim this morning. I would have liked to get in a long course lane but in the interest of avoiding a confrontation I opted for the kiddie pool. My lungs feel a little stiff the past couple days, I guess from Sunday’s swim session. Today felt much better than Sunday though. Short course times are much quicker and the workouts less intense, I feel. For example, Sunday’s 10 x 100s had me coming in between 1:40 and 1:50. This morning’s same set put my 100 times between 1:20 and 1:25. Sunday I couldn’t even finish the set without fins for the last half. Today I did it all. And it was hard.
- 1 x 100 free
- 10 x 100 free @ 3:00
- 20 x 25 free kick
For the last kick sets I used short fins, streamline position and focused on reducing breaths. The last few lengths I wasn’t breathing at all, felt rad.
