So Benji has this great idea for us to work on our swimming LT thresholds in the pool last night be doing lots of anaerobic sets. Fortunately Benji is a really good coach and knows what he's doing, and balanced the sprints with lots and lots and lots of rest in between. I ended up with 2550 yds:
Warmup: 200 swim, 100 kick, 100 pull
3x200 (175 easy, 25 sprint)
6x50 sprint on 2'30" (sprints were 42-44" - see what I meant about lots of rest....)
400 kick sprint on each 6th 25
8x25 sprint on 1'15" (sprints were 20-21")
5x50 breathe after 1 stroke, then 2, then 3, etc
CD: 200 swim
Actually turned out to be a pretty fun workout.
Lots of training coming up. Tonight is a 2.75 hour run, tomorrow is the TI swim clinic, and Sunday is 5 hours of riding fun.
Live with purpose....Enjoy the adventure....
