This week my #FaveWorkout was Tuesday’s swim workout. I was supposed to have gotten up early to swim in the morning before work, but I knew I had meetings all day and would potentially have the opportunity to swim over lunch. I decided to risk it, sleep in and hope for the best…a long enough break in my meeting to swim over lunch. Thankfully luck was on my side and I was given a 90 minute lunch break…just enough time to drive to the pool, complete my hour swim, quickly shower and head back to the location we were meeting at.
I ended up having a lane all to myself for the entire swim. I wasn’t entirely sure swimming at lunch would be in my favor as sometimes the lunch hour can mean a busy pool, but this was not the case on Tuesday. Thankfully my 2900 yard swim did not need a lot of equipment changes, so I was able to limit my breaks to what was scheduled and easily complete my swim in the allotted hour.
Ladder to 300
Warm-up: 300 swim, 4 x 100 drill (50 drill, 50 free)
Main Set: 2 x 150 (15 sec), 3 x 200 (20 sec), 2 x 250 build (20 sec), 1 x 300 race pace (15 sec), 3 x 100 race pace (20 sec)
Cool-down: 200 any stroke
I was very pleased with this workout…including breaks, I swam my 2900 yards at an average pace of 1:57/100. My form felt good…I felt fast in the water and felt like I could swim forever at this faster pace. There was lots of #swimlove with this workout 🙂 Bonus…I had an AWESOME run after my meetings. The kind of run where you feel on top of the world upon completion 🙂
