...well, I certainly felt that workout tonight.
Trying to work on my swimming so tonight we were pool bound following quite a tough routine:-
WARM UP 150m
EASY SWIM TO GET USE TO THE WATER
Like it says, this was easy
LEG KICK - 4 X 25 M
USE A FLOAT (IN FRONT) FRONT CRAWL LEG KICK
WOW I don't know why I thought this would be easy, but bejeesus, this was exceptionally difficult. Felt the burn BIG TIME
DISTANCE 2 X 200
AIM TO WORK ON YOUR BREATHING @ STEADY PACE
Managed the distance okay and my pace was pretty steady. I alternated my strokes between breast, front crawl and back crawl (my lazy option when I feel tired, I've always been stronger at back crawl for some reason) but one thing I cannot get is my breathing into a good rhythm I'll get there though - practice makes perfect.
DRILLS 6 X 25
CONCENTRATE ON HAND ENTRY AND LEG KICK
It was good having Scotti to spot me and spot weaknesses and areas I had to concentrate on, like my left arm Left shoulder is sore now, just from working it harder than normal, I think like some folk get a lazy eye, I've got a lazy left arm!
SPRINT 4 X 25
WORK TO INCREASE YOUR SPEED FRONT CRAWL ONLY
Enjoyed this, didn't think I would after already feeling the burn, well, I enjoyed it until the bit where my friggin' calf cramped!!!
COOL DOWN 100m
EASY SWIM - FOCUS ON YOUR BREATHING
Nice cool down and wow, did I feel like I had a proper workout after that!!
Note to self, buy a new swimming costume!!!! My tankini is no good and the bottoms are HOOOOOGE on me now and nearly fell off tonight
Goodnighty nighty folks
