Today was a bit of a lazy workout with slower intervals. I was tired. Not enough sleep, swimming 3000+ yards yesterday AND cycling 18 miles will do that, I suppose. Then, I went to bed late and was up early. A lot of excuses for why I was tired, but I swam fly anyway. The first few felt pretty good and some felt less good. LOL For once, I had my own lane, which was good as I was swimming a lot of fly and IM. Oh, and, despite the fact that there were only 6 people in the pool the hour before my swim time, we were let in 2 minutes late. On any other day, I’d say, “What I could’ve done in those extra two minutes.” Not today. I probably would’ve just squandered them hanging onto the side. (Shrug) I was in the pool and swimming. That’s what counts, right?
Even on your bad days, it’s a good day in the pool.
As ever, adjust the intervals and the sets to work for you and enjoy!
