Training day #1
Ok I finally got up and went to the pool. My motivation is still not there but it's improving. I just want another few months off I guess to be lazy like I have been most winters.
I had written down my workout from my coach Marcia Cleveland and was going to write down my times as I did sets so we could make adjustments as we go along.
As she has requested and I'm going to honor, I'm going to keep my workouts I type up here vague.
I made it through the warmup of 1000 yards of mixed stuff just fine. My first set were some 200's. I had a target time for sets to hit. When I first looked at it, I thought the time was VERY generous and I thought would be no trouble.
As each set went by, I got slower and slower and SLOWER. By the time I got to my 5th 200 I was spent...completely spent! I turned to do one more but my arms shut down on me. I had hit my limit. I did a very slow 200 CD then got out.
The good news is that I was at the pool FINALLY and I did 2000 yards for the first time in 2 months. The bad news is that this 2000 yards kicked my ass completely when it used to take me about 3000 yards before to get completely warmed up!
I emailed her and told her my times and how each set went. I'm going to have to get to the pool more and swim a LOT more to get back to where even doing 5k seems like a joke. I miss that ability now and maybe this is the kick in the rear I need. 2k wiped me out....sad day for Goody....sad day!
