First, the important stuff ~ Mai's doctor called today and said she wants us to just observe Mai for a couple of weeks and then go from there. Mai had another good day today :o)
Today was our first group swim at the RAC. I love the RAC. Beautiful locker room, fresh towels - all you can use - lots of hair dryers, curling irons, the works. SO NICE.
So the start of drills for the year. I didn't do much in the way of drills last year - missed too many coached swims in the pool, but not this year. It felt awesome - definitely not as scary as my first day last year. I'll try to remember what we did ~ Coaches Jane and Lindsay eased us in with a
10 minute warm up,
8x50s, odd ones 60 kicking with a board, even ones long glide freestyle building speed to 75% while keeping good body position. Rest 15 sec.
1x200 pulling iwth the buoy. Relaxed stroke, press the chest into the water.
6x25s, 1 easy, one moderate, one fast. Rest 15 seconds in between each.
Warm-down, 5 minutes with bobs.
I think that was it, but that doesn't seem like much. Pretty easy breezy...which was fine at 6am! ...and I was home before the kids even woke up!
I hit the gym after Jack got out of school for some RT, 20 minutes on elliptical and then I put my suit on for the sauna and decided to swim for 20 minutes first. Sauna was nice and friendly today and I stayed in talking for 20 minutes - AWESOME!
