Can You Believe....

I am actually a little sore today! I haven't been sore from a training run in a very long time. Whoo Hoo! I'm getting my groove back.

So swimming today - I knew I had to leave a little early, so I intentionally arrived early enough to get a solid swim in before practice started. I thereby did 600m warm-up (alternating strokes every 100m) and 300m with fins. I managed to squeeze another 100m before Coach asked us to hold up.

He talked a few minutes - encouraging us to participate in the upcoming Postal 3000m challenge. I am very intrigued but need to work out scheduling with DH.

The drill set was freestyle - 11 x 50m free w/ fists. I led our lane. I felt strong and confidant. We then alternated leaders for the main set (I led 2nd).... 3 rounds of 150m free (breathe control 3.3.5.5.7.7), 100m not free (we chose breast/back/breast/back), and 50m free fast. I was able to get only 2 rounds in before I had to leave for my appointment.

I was very pleased with the workout though... 2150m total.
