Swimming in Solitude

9 x 50s,
1 at 60% effort, 1 at 75%, 1 at 90%, repeated for a total of 9. Rest :10 between 50s.
1 x 100 easy

Swim the following set 3 times:
1 x 100, breathing every 3 or 4 strokes (approx 80%)*. Rest :15
1 x 200, breathing every 5 strokes (approx 70%). Rest :15
1 x 300, breathing every 6 or 7 strokes (approx 60%). Rest :30 before beginning set again.

* The goal on this set is to let your breathing set your pace. If you’re finding it disruptive to breathe so often on the 100, speed up. If you’re finding it too hard to breathe less often on the 300, slow down. Let the pace match the breathing, not the other way around.

I was extremely tired this morning. The muscle relaxer from the night before might have had something to do with it. That or adding my run mileage over the last week. I felt like I was swimming on an empty tank of fuel. Blah.....I partied/trained too hard this past weekend. If you can't take the heat get the fuck out of the kitchen.
