Swimming and rollers

No one's star-struck here. You puke right next to the best of them. - Catharina Hedberg
I had my swim class last night. I worked on POWER. It was a tough workout. Lots and lots of laps. The hardest sets started at 2 x 100 yards then 3 x 75 then 4 x 50 then 4 x 25 with decreasing rest intervals. By the last 25 I think I was only getting like 5 seconds rest. I thought that I was going to puke that last lap. I think Missy understands something about this.

I did 30 minutes on the rollers this morning in the garage. I almost made the entire 30 minutes without stopping, however, I still can't take my hands off of the handle bars very well. I tried to make it the last five minutes but the drops of sweat on my eye lashes were very distracting. I still have to master the one handed roller riding before I put the tri bike on the contraption.

For lunch I worked on more swimming. I just did lots of small sets for a total of 2000 yards - warm up plus 10 x 50, 10 x 100, cool down.
