I'll just have to go into my next several swims with determination and no pain threshold, as it will hurt and test me big time. I will want to quit mid-workout, I know that. This will be another test of mental fortitude and I hope to come out on top.
Today, during the blizzard, I did cruise intervals on the bike, 5x6 minutes at zone 4-5A pace, around 173 bpm average per interval. After 2.5 days off from biking and two straight tough run workouts, I'm pretty happy this went as well as it did.
The only thing holding me back at the moment is fear of getting back into the pool and being out of shape or not feeling as good as I was 2 weeks ago.
