Triathlon Training, Week 2, Day 1

Plan: 300 warm up, 5 x 100 with 50 race pace & 50 easy, 200 cool down

After last week’s swim after the interval run, I realize that my need for recovery trumps my swimming base. Humble pie anyone?

For this workout, I followed the plan a little closer.

My swim: 200 S/K, 5 x 100 @ 2min, 100 IM and 100 free cool down

So I only did an extra 100 yds and swam the full 100’s at pace. The IM for a cool down doesn’t really do anything to cool me down but butterfly with fins is just fun.

I swam this one without my Apple Watch + MySwimPro app combo since the workout was easy to remember and 2 minute intervals are easy to manage with a pace clock. I didn’t get any heart rate feedback, though, so I’ll use my watch for that reason going forward.
