Yesterday, I wrote about my awesome 2-mile run. It was a good week for me. On Thursday, I got in a great swim.
I got a kickboard and pull buoy for Christmas and had yet to use them. After I got the kids to bed, I headed to the pool.
Here's my workout:
Warmup 100 yards
Ladder--- 100, 200, 300, 400 free
100 each kick, pull, swim free
100 each kick, pull, swim back
Cool down 100
Pretty simple, ending at 36 laps.
I was pumped. I worked hard and killed my goal (1 hour, I swam it in 50 minutes). I haven't swam a mile in a long time, and doing it in 50 minutes was awesome because I wasn't pushing my speed. I know I'll get faster, and it's a great place to start.
Now to get a regular swim schedule in place.
