Hello from Hot and extremely Humid Texas!
I have a bunch of stuff I need to get down in the yard around the house but it is just too hot out to do anything. So, I spent most of the day inside until I went to the gym to swim some laps.
Before I get into my swim I want to talk about this cool swimming website I found. It is called Swim Smooth and it teaches you all the aspects of having a good freestyle stroke through an interactive app that you can download to your computer. I wish I would have found this thing about 4 months ago! Check it out if you are planning on learning to freestyle or even if you have been doing it for years!
Anyways, I went to the pool today for the first time since my Triathlon. I decided to work on my stroke and my breathing using some of the techniques from the Swim Smooth site.
Also, all the reading I have been doing about improving my swim time involves doing intervals. Today I did a couple 4x100 sprints and a 4x50 sprint. This allows me to go fast but also not to lose my form. It is all about the muscle memory. I felt very good after the swim and could have went a little more but decided to stick to my plan of doing 1000 yards total!
Tomorrow is Shoulders & Arms and Ab Ripper X. My left shoulder is feeling a little better today so I plan on Bringing It hard.
Thanks for Reading,
