Monday spin/swim

ARGHHHH, when am I ever going to do any strength training?!? I know I need to, and I enjoy it once I am doing it, but for some reason it is the thing I infinitely put off - I had it on my schedule to do an hour before the spin class, but dragged my heels getting out the door, and it is neither psychologically nor physiologically plausible to do it post-spin.

In every other respect, a very good exercise day. Spin class was excellent - I really like this guy's approach - and I could tell how much bike fitness I've gained since the last spin class I took. Showered and ate lunch and read for a while, then got in the pool for a solid swim - should really have done one more 600 of higher-intensity freestyle-type stuff, but judged the degree of raininess outside meant I had really better get myself on the bike home before dusk approached.

RAINY ride home! But it is all good, good practice in case I have a rainy race...

1hr. spin (24 IDU*)


600 free with every fourth length back

4 x (6 x 75, #1-3 as kick-drill-swim, #4-5 as drill-swim-swim, #6 as swim), IM order

IDU...I like that phrase - I might use it sometime. :)

A very good workout!

Concur with Rainmaker - "IDU" is good coinage!

IDU??? That is funny!!

And I am the same with strength training. If it's not on my training schedule, it doesn't usually happen.
