So yeah.... really didnt want to get out of bed this morning. This was one of those, "but my bed feels soooooo good and its cold outside and I really dont feel like swimming" mornings. But alas, I climbed out of bed and made my way to the pool. Of course now that the workout is over I'm glad I did as I ended up having a decent 5x400 workout. Decent but not great or even good really because I've been having a hard time replicating the intensity from last year. I think its the combination of swimming both by myself and before the sun comes up that makes it hard to get in a really high quality workout. Typically when I do the 400s, for example, I end up dropping about 10 sec from the 1st to the 5th simply because it takes so long to get going. I think from now on I'm just going to have to really HTFU and work the first couple really hard without worrying about the later intervals since I dont think I could even positive split them if I wanted.
