2 Buckets

Day 12 - June 5, 2009
When time is limited one must make the most of what they have. Today I opted to throw two 1 gallon buckets around my waist and take on some 200s (check out video clip). The goal was to load the muscles and lungs in a very limited window of time. Mission accomplished.

Details:
6 x 200 w/ :30 sr
1 and 4 - w/ buckets
2 and 5 - 100 w/ buckets / 100 no buckets
3 and 6 - no buckets
THEN
6 x 25 w/ :20 sr

Data:
Splits taken per 100
1st 200 1:40/1:37
2nd 200 1:38/1:13
3rd 200 1:12/1:14

4th 200 4:04 (forgot to take 1st 100 split)
5th 200 2:03/1:13
6th 200 1:13/1:15

16.4, 16.3, 16.2, 15.8, 16.1, 15.3

TET 30:36

Great swim...loads of fun...found myself laughing at myself as I struggled with the flip turns and ropes wrapping around my legs, buckets pinging my head, and leaky goggles.

Have a blessed day everyone!
