So I've been following this training plan for the past month or so. While it's had the desired effect of letting me train without having the come up with my workout schedule, it has also apparently made me stupid.
I was all set to go to the gym and swim this morning after class. I get there, and get my things out and am all ready to get changed, but first I wanted to review the workout. But when I looked through my bag for the printout, it wasn't there. I must have left it on the table this morning. Oh no, the horror! But really, it totally threw me off.
I stood there looking at my swim gear for a while, contemplating my options. I knew I was supposed to do 2500 yards, but the idea of coming up with my own 2500-yard workout practically threw me into a panic. I actually considered driving home (about 10 minutes each way) to get the workout. Then I thought that I could just go home, and come back later to do the workout. I thought about asking the front desk folks if I could look it up online. I might as well have put a sign around my neck that said, "My training plan has made me stupid. Can you help me?" Finally, though, I called Speedy who humored me and read me the workout over the phone. Now that I had been told exactly what to do, I could finally get in the pool. Whew. That was close.
