Two shocking things:
#1. I am posting twice in one day.
Try and guess #2:
If the wet, crazy hair and circles on my forehead aren’t a giveaway, maybe this will be:
Obviously, #2 is that I am from Belarus! hahaha. Just kidding, gotta love cheapo swim caps from the Knabes bin. Holla if you know what Knabes is .
#2 really is that I went for a swim today!
My pull buoy helped me sweat pink. YES, you do sweat while swimming!!
Though I only swam 4000 yards, the workout was the first one I’d done in QUITE some time. I used this workout as a base and sort of modified it!
- 1 x 800 warm up (300 swim, 200 kick, 200 pull, 100 swim)
- 4 x 150 — 50 kick, 50 swim, 50 drill 2:15
- 3 x : (3 x 100 IM, 1 x 100 kick) (IM on 1:45, kick on 2:15)
- 16 x 50 alternating 2 pull, 2 kick (pull on 1:00, kick on 1:15)
- 12 x 25: 1 hard/ez, 1 ez/hard, 1 ez, 1 hard (alternating 4 free, 4 fly)
- 1 x 300 cool down
- Total: 4000 yards in an hour and 20 minutes!
All in all, great workout. My arms are feeling nice and tired. Just the way I remembered it!
The one thing about swimming is that you get out of shape really fast. I hope to swim at least once a week from here on out. I always forget how much I love it, and how great of a workout it is!
Another thing about swimming that is good but super random: it forces me to brush my hair. HAHA I know that probably sounds really weird, but I NEVER brush my hair. I am sure that is horrible, but I do brush it out with my fingers in the shower. Curly hair and brushes don’t get along very well. With swimming, I can’t get anywhere without kid’s apple detangler and a good brush. My cap makes an abnormal amount of knots in my hair, and it legit takes like 5 minutes to brush after I get out of the water.
Oh well . Maybe that’s just another reason I should swim a little more!
What’s your workout for today!?
