I Think I Could Do That Every Day

I swam AND biked today. It wasn't technically a "brick" because in between the two I got the kids off to school and took the dog to Boot Camp. 

Masters was great. Wednesday is always IM day and it seems to keep attendance down. Our main set today was:

2 x 75 fly
3 x 100 IM
2 x 75 back
3 x 100 IM
2 x 75 breast
3 x 100 IM

I drilled the 75s fly but was able to do the full 100 IMs. I have been thinking that my backstroke has been clunky and my breaststroke just plain awful, but coach asked if I swam IM in college. I told him he should know the answer to that by the look of my breaststroke. (I would swim it occasionally.) He said he was surprised because my fly and back looked good. Then he asked if I swam 200 fly. My response was a flat, "No." (I could never finish it when we time-trialed it in college.) He was kind of surprised. My fly and back did feel particularly good today and when those feel good my free feels particularly strong. All in all a good session. LCM outside starts June 8th - can't wait (really, I can't.)

MS and I had scheduled a bike ride for the morning. The weather was sketchy - it had been raining or drizzling and extremely windy for about the last 12 hours so I was worried (hoping) we would get rained out. I had to bust a move over to MS's house after I got home from dropping the dog off so I didn't even get to take a proper shower and smelled kind of "bleachy" from the pool. We rode for an hour and a half and avoided all rain and wet roads and even got a little sun at the end. Two hours later it was pouring rain. Very strange weather. 

I would love to be able to get two workouts a day in everyday. I guess I will have to take them when I can get them. I hope they come more often after the marathon in a few weeks, but then I will be shuttling the kids to all their summer activities. Ah, I'll make it work.

Nobody would ever ask me if I swam fly...ever. I can do 12 yds of fly, then I drown.

Ooooooooh, I like that swim set! I totally count taking kids to school a 3rd workout! At least in my life, it is a workout!

I think you did a triple brick w/ all the kid and dog-carting-around-stuff! Nice on missing the rain!

Guess who found the farting app on the iPhone? You were right. There is no peace. I was serenaded while cleaning the kitchen this morning.

Nice workouts!
