I guess I do. I had to read Coach Jen’s notes twice to make sure I was understanding it correctly.
10 x 100 as:5 of them SWIM with SHOES ON….you must focus on pulling more with your upper body and kicking w/ your hips and hip flexors!
Well ok then. So I head to the gym and took care of my warm-up then laced up my shoes. I found it to be PREEEETY difficult to maintain a solid kick while wearing gym shoes. I wasn’t wearing water aerobic shoes either. I was rocking a pair of Nike Triax 13’s… Which I will run in a little later… assuming they’re dry!!!
“Oh that is not a swim fail – just a little speedbump! I know this is a HARD SWIM – I am pushing you – you will be an animal !!!”
Well that was good to hear! I have a hill run to tackle tonight, I’m not 100% sure the spot I found can really be considered a “hill” but it’s gonna have to do!
