Swimming FAST

Last night I notice that Josh had posted on facebook that there would be a distance workout today at Fairmont, so I decided to join in, since I was just going to do my own thing anyway.  The group of FAST (Fairmont Aquatic Swim Team) consisted of Josh one other guy and two females.

The water was only one degree warmer than Northwest so it wasn't terrible.  83.8°F

500 swim 300 kick
300 - 6 x 50's 10 kicks then one stroke
1000 - 10 x 100's get 1:15 or under on 1:25
200 easy
400 - 4 x 100's descending get 1:10-1:12, on 1:30
200 kick
300 easy

Then did my own thing:  1000 pull, 1000 free, 1000 pull large paddles, 1000 free

Then did the masters workout again.

10,400 yards total in 3:00

Really enjoyed the 10 x 100's.  I also put 2 cups of white grapejuice in my blend, and man that made a huge difference.  I was energized the whole workout and swam strong the whole time.  I'm going to keep that up.  Sure it boosts the calories of the drink, but that should be OK when you're training hard and burning about 2000 calories.  You need glucose and you need it now!  

This morning before the workout, I was doing upper body and enjoying the pull-up routine.  On my last set I made a bet with Cathi.  To see if I could do 15 reps.  (Nevermind the fact that I already did 33 reps earlier)
