My #FaveWorkout this week was not really because of the workout, but more because of where it took place…
I LOVE the pool at the Bedell Family YMCA in Spirit Lake, Iowa where I grew up. Granted,when I grew up, the Y didn’t exist…it is only about 5 or 6 years old…so I didn’t get to enjoy it when I lived there.
Last weekend we went to visit my parents and got snowed in thanks to the 8 inches of snow that fell (mostly on Sunday) in Okoboji. That was nothing compared to the 14 inches of wet, heavy snow we got back in Ames. Needless to say, we decided driving while it was snowing with 35 mph winds was probably not the smartest move, so we stayed an extra day in Boji. This meant Monday morning we got to complete our swim workout in a great pool!! Can you say serious #swimlove?!?!?!?!
- It wasn’t 86F (like our pool back home).
- It wasn’t closed because there was a water aerobics class in the pool (and there was a class in the pool while we were swimming).
- It isn’t so heavily chlorinated that my skin itched for days after swimming.
- It wasn’t so crowded that there were at least two people per lane.
I suppose I should share with you the workout I actually completed, huh?!?!?!?!
7×200 (totaling 2500 yards)
Warm-up: 300 swim, 4×50 drills
Main Set: 6×50 (increase intensity with each repeat) (15 sec rest between)
7×200 (20 sec rest between) 0dd 200s are pull, even 200s are swim
Cool-down: 300 any stroke
I felt so peaceful and happy while swimming, yet so sad to have to leave when done…
