For the last few years, it's been a bit of a tradition to swim the number of years I've been alive x100 on my birthday. Someday that will have to stop! I actually wasn't going to do it this year, until Donna taunted me about doing a birthday swim, and my yesterday's swim got rescheduled to today. So I was in.
Birthday workout 2013, age 43:
warm up: 300 swim, 300 kick, 300 pull, 100 build to fast
main set: 8x250 as 200 steady, 50 fast (10 seconds rest between each)
5x200 full gear (pull buoy, band, paddles) alt. easy & steady by 25's
(10 seconds rest between each)
cool down: 300 easy
When I started doing birthday swims a few years ago, they were so hard! But Noa has had me swimming 4200m every Saturday for the last few months, so this one was no biggie and I swam the whole thing really well.
Happy birthday to me!
