Swimming wowes...

So my swim class starts at 7:30 pm M, W, Th. Here's the problem so far. I get off work between 5:30 - 6:00pm, so what the heck do I do for an hour and half. I have been sitting here at the office watching TV, eat dinner and then go but now it has become a bothersome and I find myself not wanting to go. I have learned the swim sets that the coach has me swimming and it has definitely increased my endurance so I know I can continue to swim those on my own. The other thing I noticed is that the Coach has not really worked on my stroke mechanics all that much. I don't really think I am perfect but he said that I would get better with it over time while also learning to increase my endurance, humm. OK, he's the coach. He has given me some corrections but I thought I may have needed more, maybe just my self critique. So if any one has any pointers give me comment. Oh, it only costs $40/month, so it's cheap, but when adding my gym dues of $32/month which has a swimming pool as well it gets costly. I even thought about ending the gym payment but then that means no free weights, cardio equip, and all the stuff 24 hour Sport Fitness's have so that's probably not a great option. Maybe an every other month swimming would be good. The swim class pool is also outdoors, burrr, heated but none the less out doors.
Tomorrow morning its a 6 mile run so gotta get up early and out the door by 4:30 am.
Also got my new bike 2006 Honda VTX1300! Yeah.. needs some accessories and new louder exhaust but all in due time.

This is a new one. A triathlete who doesn't know what to do with some free time. Sorry, I don't want to sound sarcastic. Ah, stretch, yoga, core train, run, bike, read some training books. Write a love letter to your sweetie so she has something to read when your gone on a six hour bike ride.

Get your run in before the swim!

Get a workout in before your swim. Running, biking, weights, etc. You are using mostly your arms in your swim so they shouldn't be worn out if you got something in before hand.

Congrats on the new (motor)bike!! Sounds fun!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I think the swim time can work in your favor as 'recovery' as well...like Allez said, after the run. I'm not fan of the swim from the 'technical' standpoint that it requires so much from me to be good, but once I hit the water... my whole world seems a little more connected..peaceful. Keep kickin!

Just go to work later so there's no downtime? Plus, more time in the a.m.! :)
