The aftermath

is good! :)

I tried out my new Zoot Recovery Compression tights last night. Damn those things are compressive. Come 2:30am I took them off, I lost feeling in my feet, not so sure that is supposed to happen. Maybe I have to grow a tolernece to them. Hmmmm. How am I going to explain this if I start to date a non-triathlete? Anywho, my leg felt ok this morning. Still have a little tweak but better the yesterday, this is motivating.

Morning Swim

500 warm up

Drills
2 x 250 paddels; 15 rest
2 x 250 - A-Ok 50, Karate 50, Fist 50, One arm catch up glide 50, free 50; 15

Mainset
5 x 200s on 3:30s

The goal here was to pull out 3:05-3:10s with a 20-25 sec rest between
#1 - 3:05
#2 - 3:10
#3 - 3:15 (mothor of God I can't breath. First time my stomach turned in the water and felt like I was going to hurl - SO NOT OK!) I took an extra 30 sec rest here...cheated I know :(
#4 - 3:15
#5 - 3:20

Ugh, that set was hard. I was a bit diappointed I wasn't able to keep the 3:05-3:10 and needed the extra break mid way. Oh well, guess it's something to reach for in the future.

500 cool down

Total yardage - 3,000

Leg is a little annoyed with the water. Time for more rolling and ice.
Uber excited, I get my heated seats put in the Civic today, can't wait for a toasty bum!
