Now I remember

Haven't swam in months.  Still wake up nearly every morning with my AC joint aching.  I get surgery on Jan 20th, yet I've almost forgotten why.  So last night, after running for 3 miles with Cathi at the Syracuse Community center I drove across the street to RUSH for a swim.  I was a little excited to use my new Forerunner that Chad gave me for Christmas out for another swim that was more than just 1,000 yards.  Here's what I did:

Warm-up – 900 yds:
200 easy swim500 - 5 X 100 on 1:30 (FOCUS ON streamline after flip turn)200 - 8 X 25 kick


Main Set – 1,000 yds
200 stroke of choice @:10 rest2 X 200 free on 3:00100 stroke of choice @:10 rest2 X 100 free on 1:302 X 50 @:10 rest – drill/swim by 25


Cool Down – 600 yds:
300 - 4 X 75 @:10 rest [kick, drill, swim by 25]300 easy choice


Total: 2,500 yards

Was really surprised I was holding 1:24's on the 100.  I thought for sure I'd be up around 1:40's.  I took long controlled strokes, worked on controlled breathing and a solid kick.  Yeah it was tough, but it didn't kill me.

Shoulders held up just fine, just a little out of shape.  However this morning when I woke up.  Oh my!  Now I remember why I'm having that surgery.  Right shoulder is killing me. So glad I'm getting it taken care of so I can get back to it!
