Wednesday, August 11

Went to LA Fitness but the pool was closed. They were working on the heating problem.

Thursday, August 12

Pool was open again today, thank goodness. I did my standard workout:

Warmup: 1 lap easy breaststroke, 2 laps easy backstroke, rest 1 minute

Set 1: 2 laps sidestroke, rest 1 minute

Set 2: 2 laps backstroke, rest 1 minute

Set 3: 2 laps hard breaststroke, rest 1 minute

Set 4: 2 laps overhand backstroke, rest 1-1/2 minutes

Set 5: Combination crawl (arms) and frog kick legs, rest 1-1/2 minutes

Set 6: 1 lap hard crawl, rest 2 minutes

5 minutes in the hot tub

15 minutes in the sauna

Total time in gym: 50 minutes

This seemed like a pretty normal swim routine for me, except for one thing. I must have worked a lot harder during my third set than I normally do — I needed a full 2-1/4 minutes to recover before starting set 4!

Set 1: 2 laps sidestroke, rest 1 minute

Set 2: 2 laps backstroke, rest 1 minute

Set 3: 2 laps hard breaststroke, rest 2-1/4 minutes

Set 4: 2 laps overhand backstroke, rest 1-1/2 minutes

Set 5: Combination crawl (arms) and frog kick legs, rest 1-1/2 minutes

Set 6: 1 lap hard crawl, rest 2 minutes

5 minutes in the hot tub
