Rowdy Gaines appeared on my TV yesterday to talk about his gold medal performance in the 100m freestyle at the ’84 Olympic Games. Rad. Though I won’t be competing at Beijing this year I get psyched hearing about these Olympians, their training and competitive drive. And with that thought I went to the UCSB pool this morning. Rowdy would not have been impressed, though this is a substantial improvement for me. 200s on the 5 minute, my longest sets to date, had me coming in just over 3:00 and breathing like a football fan.
- warm up
- 2 x 100 free
- 5 x 200 free @ 5:00
- Coming in between 3:00 – 3:05.
- 8 x 25 free kick
- 8 x 25 fly kick w/ short fins, no breathe
Being in the water, especially first thing of the day, is ultra rad. Why I ever stopped swimming is beyond my comprehension.
