I didn’t really feel “in the groove” today. I went Ice Skating yesterday (Sunday) with my family and I think I tweeked a muscle in my leg. When I woke up this morning it was a little sore and tight, after swimming for a little while it did loosen up and it actually feels better now than it did this morning. I’ll have to keep an eye on that.
I was running a little late this afternoon, so I wasn’t able to put in the yardage I wanted to, but I did work pretty hard on what I did. Here is my workout for today:
- 200 easy
- 5 x 100 on 2:00 minutes (I made all these under 1:30)
- 100-200-300-300-200-100 Up and down the ladder
- 8 x 25 on :30 sec
- 150 easy
Total Yardage: 2250 yards
In addition to everything else, I didn’t plan my workout ahead of time. Not planning is planning to fail, right. Yep. My workout reflects this lack of planning, I need to ensure that I write out my workouts ahead of time. This will do two things. 1. I will do all the necessary yardage. 2. I will put more thought into my workout and ensure that I am gettingthe most impact out of my limited time.
Finally, I requested a couple of videos and books on the “Total Immersion” swimming program from my library (I LOVE MY LIBRARY!). The philosophy seems interesting and from what I can tell the technique plays to some of my strengths and might allow me to improve both my endurance and speed. We’ll see and I’ll keep you posted.
