THE SWIM WORKOUT:
w/u: 2 x (100 swim, 100 buoy, 100 kick, 100 swim)
Drill: 4 x 50 (fist drill)
Main: 200 t-pace
total: 1200 meters
Webb: Big surprise here - I left the apartment 15 minutes late. Oh well. It didn't really impact my swim, just made my post-swim time a bit more stressful. There were definitely more swimmers this morning, yet I still had my own lane. Maybe all those die-hard swimmers I imagine are in and out before I get there. The most notable thing from the swim was how fatigued my shoulders are. Even though this is our easy, drill-focused workout, I had to push myself to keep an easy pace. For my TPace set, I was actually surprised I came in a little faster because I felt super slow.

So I headed to the pool after work and did the workout.
As a non-swimmer, and former swim-hater, this month has already brought about a lot of different emotions. Swimming every day is a huge accomplishment for me - that's more swimming in one month than I've done EVER. And even though I felt spent and tired today, and the swim wasn't the best, I still felt oddly strange getting out of the pool after only 30 minutes and 1200 meters. Like it just wasn't enough swimming. And I know the swim sets will get longer as the month goes on, so I'm just doing my best to follow the plan.
And since I had to swim after work, sadly I missed run club at SEAC.
WEBB'S RUN WORKOUT
Beacon Hill Repeats with SEAC, sorta.
w/u - jog 1.50 to Beacon Hill
Main - 200m, 400m, 400m
c/d - jog 1 mile back to store
Webb: I did not do the actual SEAC workout, which was 200m, 400m, 1200m tempo around the park, then final repeats of 400m and 200m. On the run over I felt like the pack was moving particularly fast. However, when I looked at my Garmin, our pace wasn't that fast and my HR was fairly low. It can take me awhile to warm-up sometimes so I just plugged along. By the time we arrived at the bottom of Beacon Hill I knew I would not be doing the planned workout. My HR was too low for me to feel that tired. This was not my night to do a hard workout. (Plus, this is technically a recovery week.) So I backed off the duration and intensity while everyone else blasted through the workout. I have not been sleeping well (allergies?) and the swimming may be taking a toll too. The plan is to sleep as much as possible this weekend to prepare for week 1 of our next training block.
