a long nap sounds very good

Ifrit is curled up on the bed...napping. Well, he was before I kicked his ball around. I picked up the gizmo at the International Coatings Expo in Philly. It's a clear ball that, when whacked, flickers red and sends out car-alarm noises. Ifrit is currently fixated on the presently silent ball as it makes it way slowly across the slightly slanted bedroom floor.

Totally fixated. Funny stuff.

I have just polished off a plate of Velveeta shells and cheese, with peas on the side. Noting the crazy amount of fat, chloresterol, and sodium in a serving size, I only squeezed in half the cheese pack. Interestingly enough, it tasted MUCH better to me. I dont get that cheese overkill (im going to puke and die feeling) on the last bite. Nice. So, it's time for some water and a nap.

Today's workout. (Keep in mind that 25 yards is 1 lap. So, 200 =8 laps, etc)
Free Warmup
350 swim
250 pull, 150 kick/swim (50 breast/50 back/50 fly)
150 kick choice
50 double arm backstroke

Warm-up set (3x through)
200 free on 2:50
150 pull (breast, double arm back, freestyle) on 2:30
4 x 25 (Odds sprint, Evens stroke drill) on :35
2 x 50 free on :50

Main Set (4x through)
2 x 50 kick on 1:05
2 x 50 freestyle on :50
3 x 150 on 2:25 (50 free, 50 stoke, 50 free)*
*last time through: 3 x 150 free on 2:10

Warm down set
5 x 200:
1. 200 free, cruise pace on 3:30
2. 2 x 25 back sprint (on :35), 150 free cruise on 2:20
3. 4 x 25 breast sprint (on :35), 100 free cruise on 1:40
4. 6 x 25 fly sprint (on :35), 50 cruise on :50
5. 8 x 25 relaxed cool down choice (on :35)

I think this is pretty accurate. with the cool downs between sets, its around 5900 yards. So, as was saying..it's nap time.

heh, it's not so bad really. i promise. its all about the intervals. today's intervals only allow me 10 seconds rest, max, on the main set. The kick and 50's free are fine, but the 150's, when I was doing the middle 50 breaststroke were a real challange...maybe 5 seconds rest between 150's. I found a good pace though and stuck it out. (I kinda have a deathwish) I need to work on my breast stroke kick in a big way. People on the team are always telling me that I have a picture perfect stroke, but it just doesnt move. It's the kick. Im such an upper body swimmer. Challenge time.
