Major Training Day

Umph, didn't see this day coming, but two more strong workouts under my belt. This morning the main set in the pool was 3x {4x100}. Before we began Simon told me to take a risk and so I began.
Round 1: [1.05, 1.06, 1.06, 1.06]
Round 2: [1.05, 1.05, 1.05, 1.05]
Round 3: [1.04, 1.04, 1.05, 1.05]
I would pay for this a bit in the remainder of the workout but solid solid main set, Thanks Simon.

Coffee at Discovery, zipp home and put my legs up to rest up for a tough Treadmill run. The run was a slight deviation from a classic. The set was 15min at 15km/h, 15min at 16km/h and 15min at 17km/h all at 2% grade. This is a very mentally tough workout especially starting out sore. But now my focus is on Recovery. Finished my Chocolate milk and off to the beach for a dip in the ocean to ice my body. This may take a swim to Seal Island out in Cordova Bay. So both Scotty and I swam out and back not quite to Seal Island but it was a high tide today. Water was pretty warm but got colder as you swam out.

Ciao for now,
