Threshold testing!! In the pool this morning!! So glad it is OVER!
My schedule had strength on the schedule for today and testing on Thursday. I was already getting super anxious for testing. Like I said last week I just feel like I have not made any swim gains. I would be happy to just stay where I am. Perfectly HAPPY!!
Chris, our coach, has been at his own training camp for the last 3 weeks in Tucson. He sent us the work out, Kristy was happy enough to put it on the board for us, and we would proceed to do the swim. He is back and the pressure is on!
I got to the pool this morning and started warming up, not even looking at the work out. We did a typically 1200 warm up and then it happened…I noticed we were doing TESTING…OH SHIT! It was not bad enough that Chris was back but he was super tan and we were doing testing today!
I did not really have time to get anxious about it. I actually thought this is better to be doing it today anyway. I have a hot date wednesday night which entails going to bed late possibly not having a good enough dinner and having to get up early! I thought PERFECT. I had a good nights sleep and a good dinner. Lets just get it over with! It was go time!
We did another 600 of building and fast 25s, 50s, and 75s to prep us for our 400 and 200 TT(time trial).
I did ok. I got lapped in the 400 so that was a few seconds extra and my time was just over my last 400 TT. I took off about 10 seconds in the 200 which made up for it!!
I am just happy it is done. Now I can focus on my track work out. It is another gorgeous day in The Rip City. That always makes running around in circles better when it is not raining!
Happy Tuesday! Anyone have a good or bad work out this morning??
