First swim in nearly 2 weeks as Sweetie has been sick and we had guests... The first 100m (long course) and I thought to myself, "Boy. That seems long." I shook it off and proceeded with my warm-up not aware of the planned workout for the day as I neglected to look - sometimes it is better not knowing.
Managed to get in 800m (500 m mixed stroke and 300m w/ fins) before Coach Bob stopped us for announcements. We did 4 x 50m backstroke drill and then proceeded with the main set. There were a lot of swimmers today - tri season is definitely here!
The main set was all freestyle: 400m, 300m, 200m, and 100m. I went out a little fast on the 400 so I stopped after 300 to let a few swimmers past me. Thereafter, I found my niche and felt good behind Scott - good bubbles. :) As we approached the half-way mark on our 200, I caught Scott's feet so I happened to look up and saw a bunch of swimmers getting out. I thought, "How odd! Why is everyone getting out?" Scott kept going but as I touched the wall, the others indicated we needed to get out on account of lightning.
Darn! Just when I was getting into the comfort zone. Proof that a solid warm-up is a good idea before any swim or run!
In the end, I completed 2000m - I'm pleased. Now I just need to stay focused and stick to a plan! I think I need to register for something to keep me honest.
