300 easy (25 scull/25 kick drill/25 scull/25 swim)

Total: About 3,500 meters (90 minutes)

I needed more time to do the full workout I had written, but I had a swimming lesson to teach at 1:00, and I wanted to have time to shower, get dressed and chug my P2Life drink without feeling rushed. I had another 500 written throughout the workout, but I had to shorten the "recovery" sets a bit to make sure I had time to do all the fast swimming I planned to do.

I felt a little sluggish today, which isn't new for me on Sunday, but I managed to do pretty well. I felt like I was doing well technically on my swims with the bungee cord, which is important. I put a lot of focus on being good technically with doing resistance swimming. This is usually made to show you where all your drag points are in the stroke. Yes, there are lots of them in breaststroke, but you notice the really big ones when you aren't swimming correctly.

Last week was pretty brutal in and out of the pool. Saturday was a big rest day for me. In addition to sleeping almost nine hours, I took a two-hour nap on Saturday! I think my body wanted to stay in that sleepy mode Sunday morning, but after about an hour in the pool, I felt things coming around a little better.
