Thursday swim

Yesterday was a write-off - I contemplated and rejected two different swim options based on subjective state of being utterly knackered, and in the end was in bed at 7pm, whereupon I slept for 12 hours. I cannot say I feel well-rested today, but definitely more human...

A good swim this morning. I skipped the long middle part of the workout (it was a distance more appropriate for fast collegiate swimmers than for regular grown-up ones!), but did all the rest of it, plus an extra hundred at the end. Very nice, too...

300 warmup (100 free, 50 kick, 100 free, 50 drill - I did catch-up)

8 x 100 as 75 build + 25 sprint with hard kick, 15 seconds rest (I did these on 2:05 - I tried the first couple on 2:00, but it wasn't quite enough rest)

5 x 100 as 100 free, 25 stroke 75 free, 50 stroke 50 free, 75 stroke 25 free, 100 stroke on 5-10 seconds rest (I boldly did FLY!)

300 easy swim down - I did 100 back, 100 IM with fly drill, 100 back

1900 yards total
