Legs are tired and I feel sluggish. I wasn't in the mood to run, but my pace was pretty good considering I was daydreaming a bunch on this run. My HR was so high that I didn't have to push to keep it up on the run.
No more rest week :(
Lift at break, Swim tonight.
The masters swim coach asked again if I will try it out, so I will go again tonight. I already told her that the first two times I showed up, she wasn't there and why should I pay her for a workout written on a board when I have already paid my coach for a written workout. Anyway, she promised to be there tonight, so I will see how it goes.
I joined the Masters program. It was pretty cute when the coach said, "the main set is 8 x 100, you can cut that in half and do 4 x 100 or 8 x 50 if that is too much for you" and at the end when she said the workout was 3000 yards and " I bet you didn't think you could swim 3000 yards in one workout, did ya?"
She was very nice and said I have a really smooth swim stroke.
Warm up: 1000 before class (500 swim, 100 kick, 400 pull)Main sets8 x 100 as (odd drill and free every 50 and even, pull and free every 50)5 x75 Free4 x 75 Breast3 x 75 Back2 x 75 Flyall as 25 drill, 25 stroke, 25 drillI decided to not even try the other strokes, but halfway through the Breast stroke set, she made me try it. I told her it had been years since I had even thought about it, but afterwards she said I did it perfect. So I did 2 sets of breast.On my last set, she wanted me to try the backstroke (so, ya know when you are in a triathlon and you panic, you can flip over and still keep swimming) :) I did one set of backstroke, which has some problems in it, so I did one more set and she helped with my formCool down: 250 easyoverall I had a good time and while I was hoping for some help with my form, I felt really good that she had nothing to add to my swimming. With all of the drills I did today, I could tell my form was actually getting better during the set. So, even though I initially didn't want to, I paid for the month of May' masters and she might have even convinced me to try and compete in the next meet...who knows :)
5 miles at E pace (10 min/mile)
Disney's California Adventure

California Adventure isn't very fun at all. Lauren's friend had never been, and we could still use her ticket from last month when we went to Disneyland (2'fer), but needless to say we won't go back to California Adventure again if we can help it. All the kids were ready to leave after about 2 hours :(
1 hour at EA (120-131)
10 minutes at E pace (10 min/mile)
Was supposed to ride at a HR of 120-131, but with the number of switchbacks and people walking their dogs, etc., I just couldn't get the speed up. Itried standing, spinning and mashing, but I just couldn't do it, so I just rode at whatever pace I could manage.
Run: 5 minutes out/ back
Very busy day for the cow family, I was out of the house to workout at 6, then home to shower and we were out all day long. We had so many things to do and made it to everything on time, including Seans baseball game, church, party at Dave and Busters and a house warming party (that is actually on Sunday not today). Hey, it was on our calendar for Saturday and we made it on time, so that counts, right? :)
