I’m training for the Rocket Chix triathlon on July 28 and today was a swim day. Of course, I’m cheating a little bit because I’m running tonight too.
This morning’s swim was 10×75 yards with 15 second rests. I definitely got 10 in and had to push myself to swim 75 yards without stopping each time, but I kept telling myself that in 7 weeks I am going to need to be able to swim 350 yards without stopping before I even start biking or running. That pretty much shut me up and made me get down to business.I also just let myself rest as long as I needed to between each set, somewhere between 30-45 seconds.
Anyone get a headache the day you swim? I always seem to. Also, what’s up with swim caps? Are they actually supposed to keep your hair dry or just keep it out of your face to swim? My hair always ends up wet.
