Same workout as yesterday, except done correctly ;) This was a HUGE breakthrough, knowing that I can actually swim fast(ish) when I want to.
Did my 1000 swim test time in 17 minutes flat! And I'm not entirely sure I didn't do an extra 50 in there, but I'm erring on the side of caution. This is huge for me- that comes out to a 1:42 per 100. I've been told several times that my form is exponentially better when I try and swim fast- I guess it's really true. Pretty stoked about this. A full 2:40 faster than what I did yeaterday.
Back, legs, core
First ride on the trainer in a LONG time.
10' 1 legged drills (5x1' each)
Did the 1000 as a swim test time. Because I'm too much of an idiot to ask what effort level it was supposed to be at, I just swam "normal". Finished in a time of 19:40, or a 100 yd avg of 1:58. I suppose that's not too bad for being out of the water for nearly 5 months...
Per Thursdays workout:
Z1-2 run on the treddy with 4x(2' LT+, 2' easy) in the middle.
I need to figure out my T-time, so I did my 1000yd test time in 21 minutes in the endless pool. Not sure how accurate the little computer thing is, so I'm going to repeat in a 25 yd pool tomorrow. I don't like to deviate from the plan on day one, but lots of swimming coming up and I might as well get it right from the start.
Back, core, tri's
Easy ride out at Quantico w/Chippy and 4 other friends. First time in the saddle in a LONG time- since Sept I think. Awesome time, good friends, and it was damned COLD! Lemme tell ya- Low 40's feels like sub zero when you haven't been training outside much. This ride will serve as the bike portion of tomorrow's planned workout (who designs a workout with the first day being almost 3 hours? I mean really...) So I guess that makes this the first official day of training for IM Switzerland. Giddyup...
