I decided to change things up a little since this is a recovery week, ending with a 1/2 IM on Sunday.
Last night was the usual swim, getting in 3000 yds:
wu: 200 swim, 200 kick, 200 pull, 50 easy swim
3x200 negative split
2x300, last 100 under 2"
Broken 200 (all are all out): 25, 10" rest; 25, 20" rest; 50, 30" rest; 100...4'15" total = 3'15" 200
2x (50 kick 50 swim)
broken 200: 3'14"
5x50 on 1'30"
broken 200: 3'15"...gotta love consistency
Normally I'd run after the Tues swim, but since my legs were still tired from Sundays century and it's a recovery week, I gave myself permission to take the night off.
Tonight was an hour on the bike. There was a lot of lightening, and I had no desire to be on the trainer, so I hit a spin class for a change of pace. Although it's certainly not comparable to being on my bike out for a ride, it was a really good hour workout. Then I hopped on a treadmill for a 1/2 hour, getting in the workout I normally would have done Tuesday.
Tomorrow's another swim, and I'll at long last post a bit about last weekend's TI swim clinic....better late than never.....
Live with purpose....Enjoy the adventure....
