So I had a great workout yesterday. I did 1400 in the pool with the main set being 5*100 base intervals. Im feeling pretty good other then my breathing. As the pollen counts have been creeping up, so has my asthma. I noticed on Monday that my run felt better once I took a few puffs of my inhaler. Well I forgot to use it and when I would push myself, I would have to take a breath every other stroke. I need to try to get more strokes per breath. My other thing to work on is maintaining my form when I start to tire. I have noticed that as I tire, my form goes to crap. Oh and to top it all off, I was watching a how to on flip turns posted on BT and I think Ive been doing it wrong since I swam in HS. Not that it matters too much for tri's, but there may an indoor tri every now and then.
Today.Day Two without any soda. Two days ago I had a bad Diet Coke from McDonalds and decided I really dont need it. So Ive been drinkings lots of water and a small amount of Iced Tea in addition to my morning fresh made juice. Yesterday I had a headache by the end of the day, but today I feel good.
So todays workout called for 75 min's on the bike. Since Im really building back and I dont like riding alone, I hopped on the trainer. I decided to pop a video in the portable DVD player. BIG MISTAKE. By 30 min's I was feeling tired. I sucked down a gel and turned the dvd off and turned on the IPod and the rest of the ride was much better. My legs did feel a little tired, but otherwise it was a good ride.
Tomorrow is another swim day, then Im off Friday and Saturday is the Clinic which is almost like a full sprint tri (If the weather cooperates)
