WU: 200. I tried something different here on a whim. I changed my breathing from 3 stroke to 3, 5, 3, 5, repeat.
MS: 200 Fingertip Drag
200 Swim
200 Closed Fist
200 Swim
3x200 on 5" with results in avg min/100y per 200:
- 1st (2:10)
- 2nd (2:05)
- 3rd (1:57!!!!YEAH)
CD: Hotub.

I discovered that employing breath control (3, 5, 3 5) on my warmup set FORCES me to stay slow, BUT as I did the regular workouts and drills on the standard 3 stroke breathing, I noticed that the warmup 3, 5 repeat breathing really paid off in maximizing and paying attention to my breathing for the rest of workout.  I tend to forget breathing when I focus on other stuff, so I may not exhale enough, etc and probably short-change myself...doing this in the warmup really helped me maximize my normal 3 stroke breathing to get the most out of the drills and 200's as it really was a breathing drill in and of itself.

I feel bad for the people at Cool Running, the site just got gutted.

Not a particularly awesome workout.  I didn't really plan properly going into today, my nutrition was waaaay off. I wanted to do 40 or 50minutes, but wouldn't have had the energy.

Baklava (sp?) weather. Cold, snowy, windy...not bad for a run today!

Missed some workouts last part of this week due to some family stuff.  Snuck one in today though.
