It's tricky to get coaching advice from a man that you want to chick at a race. On the one hand, he's one of the best coaches in the world. On the other hand, there is nothing in the world that he fears more than me beating him. Well after today's swim, I'm pretty sure this is sabotage. He is trying to kill me.
30 x 50 every 4th and 5th FAST (5-10s rest)
30 x 50 every 3rd and 5th FAST (5-10s rest)
300 cool down
At first glance it looks pretty easy. I can do 50's! Man, after the last couple week's workouts of 500s and 1500s this will be a breeze!
Yeah, well that's until you get to about #24 of 60. Then it just gets painful.
I'm thinking that maybe the weekend ride will include 30 x hill repeats on Sherman Road. And I think 60 x 200 all out on the track is in coming.
But on the bright side, if it doesn't kill me, then WATCH OUT!
(The workout actually went pretty well. I did about :37 on the fast 50s and :45 on the easy ones. Not smoking, but there's a reason I'm a triathlete and not a swimmer!)
