Now that I have a broken toe, I’ve decided that I’ll be doing mostly pull swim workouts for the first week or so to help with the healing. (I’m concerned kicking will reinjure it.) As I rarely swim with a pull buoy, I wasn’t sure what my speed was going to be. Some people are faster with them. I am not. I didn’t realize just how much I relied on my kick. Apparently, I’m about :05 slower with the pull buoy. (Shrug) But the workout is also less taxing, so maybe I’m not working hard enough. LOL As I’m not really going to be sprinting (hard to do when you gingerly flip turn to insure you don’t slam your feet against the wall), perhaps I’ll just focus on technique, technique, technique.

Possibilities. Possibilities. LOL

Anyway, you know what to do. Alter the intervals, the distances, lift a set, alter the set, and, generally, just do what you need to do to make it work. Oh, and have fun.
