Thursday core/swim

1 hr. "core sculpt" (left a bit early to make sure I got some pool warmup time), 1 hr. TNYA workout (got a small break - far lane was empty, so A. and I switched over from our regular lane and split that one instead - takes some pressure off on making the intervals esp. on kick, & of course just generally less crowded...)

150 free, 100 IM drill

5 x 100 IM kick-swim as (1) 100 kick (2) 75 kick 25 swim (3) 50 kick 50 swim (4) 25 kick 75 swim (5) 100 swim

400 pull (I only did 350 - lanemate A. is a slightly slower regular freestyler than I, but amazingly faster with a pull buoy - he was finishing his 400 as I finished my 300!)

4 x 100 descending: first three on 1:55, 1:50, 1:45, then 20-30 seconds rest, then last one all out on 1:40 (but I swam it in 1:45, which felt very slow)

10 x 25 kick (I could not make the assigned interval, even with allowable extra five seconds), evens easy odds fast

2 x 50 easy cooldown

1850 yards total (short yardage - I guess it is the kick that slows everything down)

you are making me miss the pool with reports like these.

A. needs to work on engaging the core and body position! ;-)
