My good bicycle-related intentions were thoroughly thwarted yesterday and today by the need to do evil, evil taxes--clearly this is going to have to be a recovery week and I will return in full force next week...
But I did have a good swim this evening. Short but fairly satisfactory. I cannot say I am really making progress on flip turns, it just seems difficult to find the time and space to practice, but I am a slow learner on that kind of thing and will just have to trust it will come in time. I did 'em on all the freestyle bits, no matter how horrible...
Warmup: 400 choice (I did 100 free, 100 IM, 200 mix free drill and swim--quite a bit of zipper/salute, also 6-3-6)
Main set (in theory twice through, but I finished the first round only at 6:55 and spent remaining minutes practicing somersaults):
300 as 100 smooth free/50 hard kick (can't remember time)
8 x 25 2 of each stroke on :45
200 as 75 smooth/25 fast on 4:10
8 x 25 odds kick even build (2 of each stroke) on :45
3 x 100 as free (2:00), IM (2:15), free (1:55)
4 x 50 choice (1 of each) on 1:10
1800 yards total, short but not bad really. Got a lot of work to do tomorrow and the next day, but should be able to have a decent bike-run workout tomorrow later afternoon/early evening, a Thursday-morning run and a Thursday evening swim.
