This morning I was back in the pool for the first time in ages. I have been having early morning meetings that preclude me from swimming in the mornings. Today’s work out was 2100 yards with both some distance and speed work thrown in. As much as I hate those workouts I like them too. It is what I need. This work out took me 49:17:
- 250 warm up of swim, kick, and pull
- 5 x 100 odd hard, even easy
- 8 x 25 sprint
- 5 x 100 free odd, choice even
- 1 x 500 free
- 150 cool down
After the workout, I was talking with the Aquatics Director in my suit with a towel wrapped around my waist when one of the other lifeguards came in to work. I finished my conversation and changed into my work clothes (I wear a suit and tie every day). As I walking out the same lifeguard who had seen me soaking wet did a double take and then said to me, “Wow, you look different.” I jokingly responded that I clean up well. She agreed just a little vigorously.
After work today I hit the road on my bike for a little over an hour and I did about 17.5 miles. I was pretty happy with the main set as I averaged about 19 miles an hour for it. I slowed down a little to take these photos:
If you look closely you can see I was doing 18.9 mph.
This is not a “cleaned up” photo of me. Don’t you love how my helmet is all crooked.
Tomorrow is a run day.
