an "all out" swim session. And today I had one. Not big yardage, and not "fast" according to the clock's standards, but after a 15mi run with some hill repeats, it took all I had. I don't know what it is that makes the swim sessions feel that much different than the track workouts or interval sessions on the bike, but for some reason they just feel that much better. Maybe its because they aren't as "painful"? Maybe its because I have never really gotten over the "little kid in the pool" syndrome and still get a kick out of just being in the water?
Whatever it is, the workout today was a good one, not due to a yardage or time achievement, but just because at the end, I knew I had nothing left in the tank. Maybe its something in the water?
