Swim on, swim away......

Sleep last night was awful. I woke up twice feeling like I was going to vomit..the pit in my tummy was not happy. Somehow when my alarm went off at 4:45 I was excited to go swim....

Morning swim

500 warm up

2 x 25 skully; 15
2 x 50 one arm catch up; 15
repeat 1 x

Main set
1 x 200; 100 fast/100 easy - positive split
1 x 200; 50 easy/100 fast/ 50 easy - even split
1 x 200; 100 easy/ 100 fast - negative split
repeat 3 x

**The 200 repeats were done at 4 min intervals. The first 5-6 were paced around 3:25-3:30, the last 4-5 I dropped a couple of secs and pulled out 3:20-3:25s. First time I think my HR has reached 181 in the pool without fins. I have waaaaay too much energy for my own good right now.

1 x 100 easy
1 x 200 paddles

1 x 500 - cool down

Total yardage - 3400

As the day progressed the pit in my tum tum got worse. All day I felt nausea, energy dipped around 3-4 and all I wanted to do was crawl into a ball and go to sleep, which I did when I got home. My leg feels a little better today. First day I've had noticeable improvement. As I come to think of it I'm pretty sure I feel ill from the ART that was done yesterday. I ALWAYS get flu like symptoms after a massage or deep tissue treatment and I haven't hydrated as well as I normally do since I'm not really training. Bad Kat, I know. Lactic toxic release is a nasty thing. My limp comes and goes, which is a good sign. Hopefully tomorrow it will be gone. Cross your fingers for me :)
