So there are my times. This interval thing was hard. You take your timed 100 and add 25, 20, or 15 seconds to it. That is your interval and your rest. So the last two sets at the third interval (cause I was tired) I had time to stand look at my watch and say "well it's time for another one". I usually spent the first 50-75 trying to figure out what time I was looking to get the 100 done in. That took a lot of mental math. Grr. But I had a great time. The "A" group did 6x100s, glad it's my second time so I'm still putting myself into the "B" group. Overall it looked like this: (I just buckeyed this one out)
1st: 2:35/100; 2nd: 2:32/100; 3rd: 2:31/100. Not too shabby, got my goals. But it was challenging. I liked having goals to reach. Is it bad that I wanted to be faster so I got more of a rest in between each set? I was having a hard time with my watch. Just a regular Target special, Timex ironman. How do you time your intervals in the pool? Do you use the lap feature? Cause that just confuses me, why does your time keep going, and how do you look back to see your splits? I use the "chrono" setting and just stopped it while I was resting and restarted again. These times I guess are estimates cause I had nothing to write them down on, the times are just from memory. But I'm pretty sure they're pretty accurate. I couldn't remember all my splits I do remember the last third set being tough and really gutting it out the 4th to make my time.
Product review. Yesterday after the tri, they had Larabar to sample. Today I had the cherry pie variety. It was tart, like a sour cherry. The texture was decent. Not chalky like some of the power bars, and not too chewy. It felt really natural, I feel like th power bars are just compressed cement, you know? Anyways, I liked it but I may not get this flavor again cause as you all should know, if it doesn't have chocolate it's not up my alley. Wonder if Larabars have a chocolate flavor? Time to do some online investigatin'.
