Yes, I have a lemon of a car. It's a 2004 Chevy Aveo, and its been in the shop 4 times in the past 3 months. This has had quite an impact of my swimming, but not in my fitness in general. I've turned that lemon into lemonade and staying on top of my cardio, just not in swimming form. But this morning I got the car back and it runs like a charm. Hopefully it stays that way.
This morning I had to take care of my sick dog making sure he was getting hydrated and getting him to eat his medicine which wasn't easy. I was out the door nearly 40 minutes later than I wanted so I wasn't in the pool until 0700, but I ended up getting in the yardage I wanted:
300 - 200 warmup, 4 x 25's free strong
200 - 4 x 50's kick no fins
600 - 4 x 150's even free, odd IM no breast :10 ri
300 - 4 x 75's kick fins no board no rest
100 - 4 x 25's sprint on :30
600 - 3 x 200's free on 3:00
Do the same sets but backwards working back up.
Additional 100 warmdown:
5500 yards total in 1:34
Cathi laid an H bomb on me yesterday related to my swimming plans. I'm willing to play along, and not freak, but I may have a problem. One day at a time.
