Today after supporting Cathi at the Salt Lake City Marathon, I drove to SDRC and did:
1000 back/free by 25 straight
Some guy got in the lane next to me and was able to lap me doing the back/free combo so I switched back to straight free to see if I could get that lap back. I did and then some.1000 free
400 100 IM/100 Free/100 Back/100 IM
12,400 yards total in 3:30
This workout was fine, but at the end I was pretty BLAH. My neck was stiff right from the start. Don't know what I did. Might have slept on it funny. The plan was to go to Bountiful Lake after this workout and do a mile there if it was sunny. It was. So I went out there. The temp came in at 56.9°F. Got in and it was cold on the north side, but SO warm on the south end. I bet it was 60 on the south side. It felt great! I started another lap after finishing the first one. I had to meet Cathi at my parents house for an adult party so I only had time for an extra lap just around the eastern island, which I did with a wide circle, so I got in another 1/2 mile.
When I got out I didn't go through the shakes like I normally do. If I had time I could have easily done another mile. What a great swim. I was thinking how much more enjoyable the Bountiful Lake swim was compared to the pool workout I did. The sun was shining, and there were alot of people fishing, two canoes out on the lake and the water had definite warm pockets unlike yesterday. What a perfect day! Plus I broke a PR this week. Felt wonderful! Not sure I can top it next week, but I'll try.
