After last week's long ride, I decided on a swim/run emphasis for this week and next week. My long swim was this morning:
4 x 100 @ 1:40 Warm Up
3 x 300 free @ 4:15
3 x 200 free @ 2:50 } tempo
3 x 100 free @ 1:25
4 x 200 pull @ 2:50 - aerobic pace
5 x 100 @ 1:20
100 warm down - Total = 3900 yards
I made it to about the middle of the 200's before I started getting tired. But soon enough I started wearing down, and by the time I hit that last set, it was all I could do just to make the interval. Which is fine. I mean, it's sort of what I expected. My only issue is that back in in high school this would have been an EASY day, so easy that I probably would have been amazed that that's all there was.
Where are those days? And when did this stuff start to be work?
