After I had three sets completed I looked at the clock and it was after 7:30 (pool closes at 8). Unfortunately we were late getting there because there was not a highway on my way home from work that wasn't backed up due to a bad accident. My normal 30 min commute took over an hour...ugh. Anyways, I had three more sets to go in the pool and I was feeling great. So I decided I was going to try to do them all without stopping between sets in order to try and get all 60 laps in. Well, it was a valiant effort, and I didn't stop, but I only got 48 laps in before they blew the whistle to get out of the pool.
I was ecstatic with this though because I felt great and I knew I could have finished the rest of the workout without stopping. My breathing is finally under control! It was a HUGE boost of confidence towards my next triathlon and I actually am starting to believe y'all that swimming does "get better"!!! YEAH!!!!
Look out Inge I may be your replacement!!!
Tomorrow's workout 12x100 swim (easy), 45 min bike (med to hard effort) followed by a 30 min run (med to hard effort....I don't go by heart rate because Matt has yet to buy me a Garmin ;)
