Saturday swim

Warmup: 200 free, 100 IM kick, 200 free, 100 IM drill, 200 free, 100 IM

3 x 100 as 25 stroke + 75 free (fly, breast, back)

1200 yards total

I really wanted to do more like 2000, but the lane became intolerably crowded as I finished the warmup and started doing the 100s, so I figured I'd better avoid high irk by getting out of the pool. It was a pity, though, as I couldn't seem to settle in to my projected gym bike workout - couldn't get HR high enough, got off after about 15 minutes and came home to eat dinner instead. (A good choice.)

I am trying not to be too hard on myself about the lack of progress thus far on biking - it's really a summer-length project (at least!) rather than something I was going to be able to squeeze in at the end of the semester. I obviously didn't get out on the bike today - in fact I took another 3-hour nap, I am really feeling like an invalid! I know what I need to do, though, and hopefully in June I'll be able to dig in and make a little more progress.

Yes. Don't be hard on yourself!!

And that sounds like a very nice little swim.
