Monday swim/run

Chelsea Piers is a temple of bliss!

I had a tentative plan to meet up with Lauren for spin (if I got there in time) and run - I did get there in time, but it's been on my mind that I haven't swum nearly enough to prepare for the one-hour swim this Sunday, so I swam instead of spun; after that we had a very nice 3 miles or so round the indoor track and some sushi at Chelsea Market.

I think we'll try and spin and run on the three Mondays coming up, building the run up by ten minutes each time so that three weeks from now we're doing an hour spin and then an hour easy run...

Warmup: 100 free, 100 fly drill (RA, LA, 3-3-3, full stroke), 100 free, 100 breast drill-swim by 25, 100 free, 100 back drill-swim by 25

3 x (4 x 50 alternating drill, free) (catch-up, fists, front scull)

6 x 100 on 2:30 (odds free, evens IM)

200 free*

400 kick as 2 x (2 x (50 flutter, 25 whip) + 50 dolphin)

2400 yards total

*NB this was going to be 3 x 200 but the mental tedium was getting to me after the first one! On a happier note, I fully remember how to do flip turns - I was afraid I might have forgotten by not doing them for some weeks, but I guess it is one of those things that once you've learned, you are able to reproduce on a later occasion...

3 miles run

Sounds good!

If I'd been concerned about your flip turn situation I would have pushed the notion of flip turn drills at the Grand Pavilion.

Baker, I am glad you are enjoying it!

Brent: yes!

A temple of bliss - I like that! Thanks for the kind words.

Sounds like a tough workout - keep pushing (even when it's not as warm as it is today!)
