YES! I said SENSATIONAL!!
I really want to master this swimming thing and the only way for me to do it is by getting my sorry swimming butt to the pool. I know I need to put in the time and effort. It’s also a bonus that I have awesome friends who push and motivate me to get there as they know I’d pass in a heart beat if given the choice to run or bike instead.
Okay — here goes — suit on::
I’d like to the think the TYR Durafast makes me go faster — but, in reality, it’s just another suit.
I met Judy at the pool and announced that my goal was to swim 1500 yards today. She said, “oh no you don’t – I have your work-out all planned. We are doing drills!” ….. GRRRREAAAT! Just super. Ugh. I suck at drills. Then I see Jeanette and announce like I knew all along we’d be doing drills, ever so excited. (See – that’s just how I am … Fake it — even when secretly I am hating the fact I’ve got to do some drills).
Swim workout went a little something like this:
100 free before Judy got in … Then her workout::
100 WU – 50 side kick drill
100 free – 50 one arm down and back
50 free – 25 drill – 125 free x 3 (drills:: finger-tip – fists – figure eight)
3 x 50 drills (drills:: Paddles — BAND! OMG — I cannot swim with the BAND! — Paddles and BAND)
100 free for good measure!
A great workout overall — and what better way to celebrate afterwards than with this:
This TRI training season – I vow to work on my weakest link — THE SWIM!
