I am glad to be back at 100%. Tonight's plan was a swim. I am in the last week of my base phase and this was the first week that had some short sprints in the plans. I opened up with my usual warmup and felt pretty good. I knew I was short on time since the aquarobics took over the pool at 6. My pull sets felt really fast. the first part of my main set was 6*100 (25 Build/25 descend/25 B/25D) . My arms felt strong my flip turns were right on. Each one I pushed just a little bit harder. Then came the real fun. The second part of the main set was 6*25 Sprints. I pushed each one harder and faster. I havent felt this good in the pool since I swam in HS. I felt really strong
I am really running through scenarios in my head for Sunday's Indoor tri. It consists of a 10 min swim/ 10 Min T1/30 Min Ride on a spin bike/5 Min transition from Bike to Treadmill/20 min on treadmill.
As I was swimming today I thought I should test on Thursday if I can hear my watch go off under water so I can set an interval timer so I know how much time is gone so I can pace well. I am also happy to hear spectators are allowed so my wife can take lots of pics so I can sit down and analyze my swim form. The swim is my strongest, but I think if I can see some good pics, I can tweak my form and really hit it fast.
I am really looking forward to this event to really push myself and see where I really am at.
