I did 1000m in 250m increments. No arm numbness and I felt long and sleek while swimming - very cool.
1st 250m: 7:19
2nd 250m: 7:11
3rd 250m: 7:04
4th 250m: 6:38
50m breaststroke: 1:44
50m sidestroke: 1:39
50m sidestroke: 1:45
Total meters: 1150
I like how the 250's got faster even though I wasn't trying.
I've taken a step back with my training. I realized during my tri that I've lost some aerobic fitness. Probably due to the erractic training I was doing. Anyway, I'm back to basics. For the month of April I'm going to focus on building my aerobic capacity. That means slow swims, runs, and bike rides. I'll be living in my HRM and not worrying about speed at all.
That's what I did this morning with the swim. I started out really slow, concentrating on my form and not the speed at all. In fact, I felt like I was going super slow. But clearly this works because my splits got faster and faster. So that's what I'll be doing.
I've got a long list of chores for the weekend but I'm looking forward to them. Getting the house settled is the top priority but my training comes a close second. I also need to wash my car, bath the dogs, trim the dogs nails, clean up the yard, etc. etc. etc.......... Oh yeah, I'll be busy this weekend.
Okay, that's all I have to say. I'm off to read some blogs and then get to work.
