This week ended up really great! I had some great workouts and learned a lot - I realized that I do want to put effort into heart rate zone training. I will not be going as fast as I can - but instead, going at a steady rate in zone 1 and zone 2. The only time I should go above these is when I'm going uphill, or when I'm doing high-intensity strength training.
I need to work on beach entry, and swimming in big waves - my speed just dies when I'm in choppy waves...
After work biked down to LJ Shores for the weekly club swim - hit about EVERY stinking red light...
We waded out into the water, to meet up past the breaks - and as we got farther out, the waves were HUGE! I'm serious, they were no joke... and when we all stopped to meet up, it was still big waves - which meant that for the entire swim, there would be these huge waves to contend with. We set out, and I swam for maybe 5 minutes, until I realized that I would never be able to keep up with the group... and that I had no energy to keep fighting every single wave that pushed me around. I decided to head back to shore, and so did someone else - I take consolation in the fact that I wasn't the only one...
The waves were KILLER and I just didn't have the strength to fight them for that long. But at least I got out there and tried, right?
