Last night I stayed up too late (10:30pm) watching a DVR copy of Biggest Loser with Cathi. There are only two shows I watch: Survivor and Biggest Loser. I was worried when I finally turned off the light to sleep that I would be too tired, come alarm time at 4am, but I woke up alertly without snoozing. This morning's swim went really well and I didn't feel tired, or like giving. Just really strong mentally.
Because of that I was in the pool promptly at 5:05am 3000 free straight 300 easy
Then joined Masters 450 - 150 swim, 150 kick, 150 pull no paddles 400 - 4 x 100's kick with fins (alternate board, no board) 800 free strong (80% effort)30 rest 600 free strong30 rest 400 free strong30 rest 200 free strong
I went last on all these and I got lapped on the 800 and 600. I'm thinking the other guys in my lane were going a little more than 80%. But I definitely was. In fact I was probably going higher than that in order to no get lapped twice. I was still going faster than the next lane down, so I wasn't like a slacker or anything.
150 easy 500 - 20 x 25's IM order on :30
Then the workout was over, but I stayed and did it all again 450 - 150 swim, 150 kick, 150 pull no paddles
400 - 4 x 100's kick with fins (alternate board, no board)
