Tough Tuesday

View of the pool where we swim, if only we could swim yards.....

A tough swim set kicked off the hard week of training.

400 swim, 200 kick
16 X 50 on 55" every 4th fast
100 easy

8 X 400 w. 20-30" rest (the last 4 were on 5:30)
The goal of the set was to descend every two 400's, so #1 and 2 the same speed, #3 and 4 the same speed, but faster than 1-2, etc

#1-6 pull (5;15, 5;15, 5:07, 5:08, 4:55, 4:55)
#7-8 swim (4:55, 4:45)

200 kick, 200 swim to warm-down

We handed in a urine sample this morning, to monitor our hydration levels. We got the results back today before riding, and it turns out I was really dehydrated when I gave my sample this morning. Guess I've got to get the fluid/electrolyte levels up a bit. We'll be giving samples the rest of the week, so it'll give me a chance to better my levels.
