Lifted weights last night. As I indicated in a prior post I have ramped up my dryland program because I believe I need to get stronger if I want to swim faster. I would like to break 5:00 in the 400 free at Zones next month. But weight training has a tendency to slow me down in practice so it is a trade off. Lifting the night before Fast Friday may not be ideal.
Shared a lane with Larry, Kristy, Robert (who is both younger and faster), Dave-o, Stacy.
20:00 "meet warm up" (choice)
8 x pick your distance @ 8:00, active recovery after each. I swam 200s and held 2:38-2:39 on the first six and 2:40 and 2:41 on the last two.
My goal was to hold 2:36, so I was disappointed with my performance when I finished. But this is why I blog my workouts. As it turns out I maintained the same pace on this set last summer (we swam a total of 6 x 200 at that time), and I hadn't lifted the night before.
