Feeling more like an athlete

This last week was a really good training week.  I did meet my goal of getting five workouts in again.  I also met my goal of increasing two of those workouts to an hour and a half.  I wasn't able to get any VASA in, but it was a really busy week work wise, so I'm happy with what I did accomplish.

Here's what I did:

Sunday January 6th-1 hour and a half
500 free 500 back
10 x 100 Kick (alt FOB/vertical kick)
500 snorkel with tempo trainer set 105
400 snorkel with tempo trainer set 100
300 snorkel with tempo trainer set 95
200 snorkel with tempo trainer set 90
100 snorkel with tempo trainer set 85
5 x 100 IM @ 2:00

4000 yards total

Tuesday  January 8th-1hour
1000 free
10 x 100 kick (alt. FOB/vertical kick)
100 parachute
400 alternate BK/FR

Total 2500 yards

Wednesday January 9th -1 hour and a half
1000 FR/BK
2x(200 parachute/300 swim)
10x100 kick (alt. FOB/vertical kick)
2x(300 parachute/200 swim)
100 easy

4100 yards total

Thursday-1 hour
1000 free/Bk by 200
10 x 100 kick (alt. FOB/vertical kick)
400 IM
100 easy

Total 2500 yards

Friday-1 hour 15 minutes
1000 free
10 x 50 agility paddles
6 x 100 @ 1:45 tempo trainer at 90
10 x 50 stroke maker paddles
4 x 50 @ 1:30 tempo trainer at 85
10 x 100 kick (alt. DOB/vertical kick)

Total 4000 yards

However, although I got all my desired swim workouts in, I was EXHAUSTED, completely.  But I can feel myself feeling less bored in the water and more excited to go swim.  I'm hoping my work life pressures ease up in the next few weeks.
