John P wrote about a crappy swim he had the other day and today I had one as well. It was only 2,000 meters but it was a struggle to the end. I did:
9x50 0:10 (1-3 kick, 4-6 pull, 7-9 swim)
300 pull (skipped the pull)
9x50 0:20 seconds rest
#1 breathe every 3 strokes
#2 breathe every 5 strokes
#3 breathe every 7 strokes
2000 Short Course Meters
The thought of bailing around the 1,700 metre mark as John P's blog came to mind. I hung in to finish but my form was pretty bad. I was bagged from the night before. I had a work function and didn't get home until 10 pm, had a couple of beers and then crashed but I woke up at 4 am and couldn't get back to sleep.
Tammy asked how was swimming when I got home. I mumbled I was a "little" tired. I can't really tell her how bagged I was if I plan on sneaking out for hockey tonight. Worse case scenario, if I don't play, I'll ride tomorrow morning outside. Hopefully the roads will be dry and it won't be as windy.
