Today I was back in the pool for the first time in 2 weeks. It was interesting.
At first I felt like a real clutz. I couldn't seem to get it together. My stroke was all lopsided; I couldn't seem to breathe properly; I kept sinking; ugh, it was frustrating. But I kept plugging along. This is the price you pay for skipping workouts for 2 weeks.
Eventually things began to smooth out. First my breathing evened out and got better. Next, my stroke seemed to straightened out. I still kept sinking and I can't figure out that that is about. It's not that my feet are sinking, my whole body is sinking. WTF?????
The workout was:
300 sw, 300 k, 300 pull
200 sw, 200 k, 200 pull
3 x 50 rt/lt
3 x 50 fingerdrag
Total distance: 2100 m Total time: 1:13
By the time I got to the fingerdrag drill I was totally on it and doing flipturns. It felt really good again and back to where I was before I started.
Okay, I really should get to work.
