Solid Day

Another solid day of training.

I awoke this morning to one of the coldest mornings thus far in Flag. It was -2 F (-21C). That made for a brisk 30 min easy run this morning. The usual stretch and breakfast before heading to the pool followed the run.

Two main sets awaited us at the pool.

400 swim
200 kick

Main Set #1
6 X 400 pull w. 30" rest (1-3) (5:20, 5:05, 4:55)(5:15, 5:10, 4:50)
200 easy

Main Set #2
2 X (3 X 200 (1-3) 3 X 50 (1-3), 250 ez)

First round was pull (2:40, 2:35, 2:25)
Second round swim (2:48, 2:35, 2:30)

The last workout of the day was a 65' run broken up as 40' base, 15' hard, 10' ez.
We headed out towards the airport to run on the roads out there, not as much traffic.

The 15' was hard. This was our first real hard prolonged effort while running here at altitude. My heart rate hovered up around 175 for the whole period (felt higher though). The legs were hurting a bit today, but that's OK...means I'm working hard!
