Alarm went off at 0420 and I laid in bed for a minute trying to think of a good excuse to sleep in. I couldn't come up with one before my bladder woke up too so out of bed I went. Very glad I went today. I was talking with Sue before we got in and I said I'm at the point where it is taking me at least 1k to warm up but it's not quite a full habit yet...thus the mental debate this morning in bed.
Met Becky and Sue as we entered. Becky is our Masters coach. She and Sue were going to do a reverse ladder workout. Starting with 11, all odds are the # of lengths straight through and the even ones are the # by 100's.
What I loved about this workout was that after the first 3 sets, you are at 2k. The laps went by fast and the workout seemed to go great. I just felt great today. I did pulls for the 6 x 100, kicking for the 4 x 100 and hard/all out for the 2 x 100.
When you finish this set, it puts you at 4800.
200 CD then done.
I got out of the pool feeling as if I had just gotten in. I had to get to class otherwise I would have done another couple of thousand easy. Man I felt great today. I am jubilant that I didn't sleep in.
I'm really looking forward to Jordanelle tomorrow.
