Did the 1-mile swim today. That is 71 laps of 25 yards each. That is a lot of swimming.
I am quite tired right now. Especially my upper body. Good news is my legs feel fresh and that is great news for my Tri.
Today I focused on my strokes per each lap and breathing. I would try and take a breath every 3 strokes and get some sort of rhythm going. I am going to have to work on this big time. I'd be moving right a long swimming downhill - 1-2-3-4 ...d'oh .... forgot to breath and then I'd have to take a longer one and screw up my rhythm. Practice will hopefully make perfect. I also was able to average about 16 strokes per lap. Quite an improvement from my 25-26 average on day one!
Also got in an Ab Ripper X session before the swim. I used a medicine ball (5lbs) again on the Mason Twists and it is an incredible burn like that! Wish I would have been doing that since day 1.
Tomorrow is going to be a Back & Bicep day and if I have time I might do some Yoga as well.
