Weather was lovely yesterday, colder and overcast today--but I forgot that spring coming means I am afflicted with hay fever! Hmmm....
Lovely swim just now. Coach Henning gave me some advice on flip turns, they are definitely coming along though still very bad. My most serious complaint about masters swim is that it is only an hour, it is all very well for the fast swimmers because they can do the whole workout in that time but I had only time for the warmup and the first set, it rubs me the wrong way not to do the whole thing! Saturday is 90 minutes, but I have a work commitment tomorrow that will almost certainly make me lose fifteen or twenty minutes at the beginning, most irksome...
100 IM kick
100 IM drill
First (and only) set:
25 x 50
ODD sets stroke, EVEN free
First 5 (I did back): 2 kick, 2 drill, 1 swim
Second 5: catch-up free (EVIL, evil drill, v. beneficial...)
Third 5 (I did breast): 1 kick, 1 drill, 3 swim
Fourth 5: swim free
Last 5 (I did 3 back, 2 breast): all swim
And 50 free to cool down and squeeze in a couple more turns. Call it 2100, though honesty compels me to admit that I might have only done 4 x 50 catch-up free (the flip turn consultation was in the middle, and wishful thinking might have made me ready to be done with drown-intensive swimming!)...
