Did an aquathon this morning, so got in a decent swim before running:
3x(5x100s/2x100IM kick@2;05) swims@1;40(1;24 to 1;22)buoys@1;35)(1;24 to 1;22)pulls@1;20(1;12/13/14/15/15) Kicks(1;56 to 1;48)
Go get em" Dev... I will be on the road vacationing, so hitting some new treadmills and hotel pools..
Monty....I did it....3:43 even splitting 1:51 and change for each 5000m.
At 4500m I thought there was no way I would get done as I was cramping and low on energy already....I had to use my 31x Ironman finisher mindset to mentally regroup and focus on the next interval, not how much was left. Second half I went for 25x200IM on more frequent short rest allowing me to top up on a bit of nutrition every 200m. It worked.
The thing that was killing me was back stroke. Fly and breast I was fine. In fact I think I made a breast stroke timing breakthrough in my second 5000m when I had to really search for efficiency and streamline.
I am really on a high doing this 6 months after ending up under a bus.....oh and my alms right elbow is throbbed now but it beats 6 weeks of the worst pain of my life....this is that "good pain"
