You Know You Want It


The glorious burn. The sweet post workout rush in the warm shower. The big egg and cream cheese breakfast at Borrone. The joy of 10 x 400's. Turn up tomorrow and be treated to this set. I can't wait. I might even skip my normal bowl of ice cream tonight to prevent sluggishness in the morning. Probably not. But it's a thought.

Today's workout was a good one too:

*250 free followed by 4 x 25's IM order
repeat for 700 yards

*straight 1000 done as follows (with fly and breast done as 4 count kick):
200 free, 200 IM
100 free, 100 IM
200 free, 200 IM

All done continuously:
*200 fast free
*1 x 50 floaty zipper drill
*2 x 50's IM transition (like fly to back)
*150 fast free
*1 x 50 floaty zipper drill
*3 x 50's IM transition (like fly to back)
*100 fast free
*1 x 50 floaty zipper drill
*4 x 50's IM transition (like fly to back)

4 fast to finish:
*4 x 100's. first one IM, last one free, drop IM stroke by 100 to get to all free.

I'm a sprinter, so the days that I run my errands conveniently fall on distance days (funny how that works, haha). I love the sprint workouts, but know that the real magic of swimming faster happens on distance days. I was actually kind of dreading a longer workout, but I found this one to be a lot of fun. Breaking up swims this way was really enjoyable!
