This week, I’ve had more workouts to choose from for my #faveworkout, which made it a bit more difficult to choose a favorite! I had some amazing #swimlove, #bikelove and #runlove this week…so which workout did I choose?
I chose some #swimlove…It was a short swim (1900 yards) which included a 500 yard time trial (TT):
3×200 (100 easy, 50 fast, 50 moderate) (20 sec rest between)
Rest 40 sec
500 TT (swim as fast as you can without letting form totally fall apart)
100 any stroke
My TT was not exceptional, but it was the best I could do today (9:11.77). After a killer bike workout this morning, my legs did not want to cooperate. Thankfully the mind took over and told my body to “shut up and just move.” So why was this my favorite workout?
- I was able to push through, even when I didn’t think I had anything left and finish strong. I negative split my TT by 6 seconds…WHOOP WHOOP!!
- Overall, it was not a long swim, so I didn’t have to push through for a long period of time.
- The pool was completely empty…not a person in sight. I had complete pick of wherever I wanted to swim and the best part was I had the pool to myself for the whole 1900 yard swim…Can you say AWESOME?!?!?!
