Wow, after last night's swim I am drained! I was about 15 minutes late to the workout and it was just Coach Andy and James . I jumped in the lane next to James and picked up where he was at in the workout:
400 pull using Finis Freestyler paddles
400 - 4 x 100's down swim, back free on 2:00
400 pull using large paddles, keep an even split on each 100 (1:15/100 yards successful)
400 - 8 x 50's kick with fins
200 - 4 x 50's sprint the first 30 and coast the last 20
Then wrapped around and did the start of the workout since I was a slacker:
100 down swim, back free on 2:00
600 - 200 s, 200 kick, 200 pull
2900 yards total in 1:10
Not the most intense workout, but a welcome degree of difficulty given the energy level. Looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday!
In Ice Swimming news, there was a race in Russia and the results are totally mind boggling to me:
Here's the article The winner swam 2.25 km in 0.3°C (32°F) for over an hour! I was being a cry baby last night about being in 39°F water for 5 1/2 minutes, and that was quite a bit warmer. I'm such a whiner....
