100 Posts (about nothing)

I've just realised this is my 100th post woohoo who'd have thunk it! A bit of a scivy session for me tonight, as toosmartwatch took the huff and failed to register my heart rate for the whole of the warm up, and Proudy my Consett lunch time training mate (well he was until he retired for the second time) turned up.

So by about 8.40 I'd lost all motivation and I was completely bushed anyway after the hard sets of 100's, this resulted in spending the last 20 minutes of the session gossiping and catching up mainly with his trip to Shanghai to watch the world swimming championships.

I'd decided that we should start to pick the pace up with our swimming, so I hit the squad with a bit of a tester set. We were aiming to keep the 100 repeats below 90, it all started pretty well I was going under 85 but by the 11th and 12th one my stroke was dramatically shortening and the effort required was somewhere between excruciating and agonising. The set was originally 3 sets of 6 but I was sensitive to the needs of my squad, (which meant I was knackered ) so to try and keep the quality I halved the set.
