Tough Swim!

Wow....that was a tough swim set we had Wednesday morning.

400 warm up
800 swim, 800 pull, 8X100 on 1:20 (1:16's)
400 swim, 400 pull, 4X100 on 1:15 (1:11-1:12's)
300 swim, 300 pull, 3X100 on 1:15 (1:11's)
200 swim, 200 pull, 2X100 on 1:12.5 (1:07,1:08)
100 swim, 100 pull, 100 under 1:10 (1:03.5)
200 warm-down

Done and done.

We backed this workout up with a tough bike workout. It was meant as a simulation for the group going to Mooloolaba. Up and over a hill on one side (steep section then level out a bit, 1km long) then down turn around and up and over the other side (more gradual, shorter). We did this 8 times, for a total of 16 climbs. My legs were shot after 2 rounds. Dragged myself through the last 6 reps. Tough, but the workout was done.

An easy 30' run for me afterwards, while the Mooloolaba group did their heat training.

Kyle and Colin sweating through their heat session.
The absolute temperature (including humidity) was close to 50 C!
