I forgot to bring a recovery drink with me yesterday for the drive home after GSL. I did some short sprint sets against the current as fun while there yesterday. I even ended my swim doing a sprint. Well this morning when I did my warmup, my shoulders were solid iron. I felt pain with each follow through. It was muscle pain so it didn't worry me but man it was tight and sensitive. Modified my workout since I knew there was no way I was going to make what I had planned.
Did some IM's today nice and easy. Did some backstroke sets and some hypoxic sets.
Ended up doing 2500. I'm still ahead of schedule for my weekly yards/miles quota so I didn't feel back cutting back a bit today. Plus I plan on doing another short swim at GSL today to stretch out some and get some more time in cold water. It just feels so FREAKING good once I get adjusted swimming in colder water.
2500 today.....for now!
Went out and met Josh today at the Marina. This will make 3 days in a row I've hit the GSL after work. I was happy he was able to come and we just did a nice easy mile. The current was really strong again heading south so going north I just did DPS drills and going south I just relaxed and enjoyed the push. The water inside the marina read 55 but outside it was definitely colder. Some currents crossed us that I know were near just 50 degrees. It got COLD real quick when these came around. It was real fun when we were heading back in and a boat passed us going into the marina. That made the entire rest of the swim in freezing cold water. fun fun.
Another mile in GSL today.
