Warm bed, hot run and a cold pool

I did not want to get out of my cozy heated bed this morning. I finally had a solid night's rest (first in a week!) and did not want it to end. But alas, training calls. I used to get be enthusiastic about getting anaerobic 15 mins after waking, the off season really cramped my style. The last few weeks have been difficult to get up and get going, not that I don't do just seems harder then what I remembered.

My morning run was power by U2 and GU

10 min warm up
5 min stretch
10 min easy 9:30-9:00
3 x 1600's at 7:30 with 2:30 floats at 10:00

5.75 miles total

I don't know what the hell is wrong with the people that go to my gym but they all have scent issues. Today I ran next to Mr. Allspice, YUCK! Homeboy was over doused with cheap cologne. Seriously, did he think he was going to pick up a chick at 6 am on the treadmill? Really?

F%^$##$%!!!!! the water was cold this morning
500 warm up

3 x 200; 50 a-ok, 50 karate, 50 fist, 50 free; 15 sec recovery

1 x 50; 25 skully down; 25 free back
1 x 50; 25 one hand catch up down; 25 free back
1 x 100 buoy pull focusing on rolling
repeat 1x

1 x 200 fins
3 x 100 paddles; 15 sec rest

1 x 200 cool down

I got extra resistance training as the people next to me created massive waves throughout my swim, I thought I was in a wave pool.

My days are growing longer....fatigue has become my new best friend.
