Well I am starting to finally see the fruits of my labor.
This morning I had a great swim workout.
Let's begin with yesterday first though - I did get in a good long hill workout on my bike. 6 x 5minute hills with 3 minutes of active rest. I felt very tired after finishing up that workout. Then last night I had a good interval run workout with 12 x 1 minute VO2 max sprints and 1 minute rest periods. I was pretty tired last night and after eating dinner I passed out on the bed.
This morning was any other Wednesday swim day. I planned on doing my long swim this morning and that was scheduled as:
200 - warm up
2600 - aerobic long swim
200 - cool down
I finished my warm up and set my stopwatch. Off I went on my long swim. I think the hardest part about a long swim in a pool is keeping track of my laps. Occasionally I would forget where I was and have to start with my last know lap. That did not happen very often. About half way I had to catch myself - I was falling into that sloppy form style. I got to 3/4 of the distance and started to pick up the pace. I added another 10 lengths in the pool since I felt pretty good overall. My total for the intervals came out to about 2800 yards. and I could have gone farther. I wasn't completely used up yet.
Tomorrow I will be doing a Brick Workout in the morning and possibly doing a long run tomorrow night. I am still struggling with the long runs but I am being persistent about getting the runs in.
I will be working a lot more in the next month to be able to afford the trip out to OKC. So I will have to be training either late at night or very early in the morning. Should be interesting. I did find a 100 mile route for my bike that will work into my schedule. I will be doing that in 3 weeks. This weekend will be 80 miles on Sunday - OOOO now that sounds like fun..... for now - hey! Keep up the good work.
