This morning on the way to the pool I had my typical morning breakfast which normally serves me very well: 2 Clif Bars, 1 Buzz bite, 800 MG Ibuprofen (to offset the impending doom I put on my body), 20 oz Gatorade.
I came up with this workout last night and it went well until I hit the halfway point then I hit a wall. I was just drained. But I wasn't about to swim just half of this workout and not get the full 10K and have it not count for one of 10 that I need to do.
Here's the workout:
2 times through this staggered ladder:
600 - 3 x 200's free
700 - 2 x (250 free + 100 back)
300 - 4 x 75's drill, back, free
800 - 8 x 100's first 4 on 1:30, second 4 on 1:25
400 kick with fins
900 - 3 x 300's pull :5 ri
500 finger paddles no buoy
So glad I just stuck with it. I was completely spent at the end. When I got to work I had myself two of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Banana/Almond Butter (with chocolate flavor) on whole wheat. Fantastic!
