    500 mix up

    6 x 50 kick @ 1:30
    - We were suppose to hold fastest 50 free time + 15.
    After two my lack of kicking really showed up.

    8 x 100 on coaches whistle as a group all build.
    1&2 focus only on the catch
    3&4 focus only on no breath from 5yrds in
    5&6 focus only on no breath within flags
    7&8 3 fast strokes off wall before breathing

    50 EZ

    6 x 100 breast r/10 done as
    Kick, arms only, pull w dolphin kick, swim by 25

    100 fr r/10
    100 50fly/50 bk r/10
    100 fr r/10
    100 50bk/50 br r/10
    100 fr r/10
    100 50br/50 fr r/10
    100 fr r/10
    200 IM sprint

    50 EZ

    8 x 50 @ ?
    -5 were 10 sec max speed
    -3 were 15 sec max speed
    Try to increase distance on each rep

    200 w/d plus hot tub

    3700 scy

    I like workouts that switch things up with kicking, stroke work, ect. Just felt low in the water. I guess I need to get something done around the house between watching MSU/Iowa and the big one down here SC/LSU.

  5. October 13 2012 Sat Morning

    got into the pool at 0530. Not many in the pool. Had a lane all to myself. Not until the end of my workout did someone swim in the lane next to me. She was fast and effortless during her warm up. helped me keep pace which is what i needed to finish out the swim.

    I feel pretty good after last night's run. my wind is coming back and i felt strong int he water.

  6. Friday, Oct. 12, 2012 7:00-9:00pm

    by , October 13th, 2012 at 01:27 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Warmup:

    400 Free DPS

    400 Kick w/ board "social kick"

    400 Free Pull

    this part here took about 25 minutes...the coach was doing other things with new swimmer tryouts and talking with parents and such. After he noticed (minutes later) we finished each 400 he'd give us the next one. It was a really low key workout, which was nice.


    16 x 25 V-Sit Sculling @ 1:30 (went :38-:42s)

    "Main Set"...kinda (John said we needed a little aerobic work to be called a workout)




    12 x 75 @ 1:15 Desc.
    • 3 Fly (desc. down to :52)
    • 3 Back (to :55)
    • 3 Breast (to :59)
    • 3 Free (to :43)
    • Jared was leading the breast and free portion of this set, and as he was ready to leave on the final free sendoff, I said to him "if you're not under :45 it doesn't count!" Well, it worked...he went :44, and I was :43 coming up behind him.
    15 x 50 @ 1:00
    • 5 worst stroke (did back)
    • 5 best stroke (did fly) :33/:32s
    • 5 free (last one :29)
    100 EZ

    ---------------------
    3500ish yards


    Played a game of capture the flag (or pullbuoy) with the team for the final 15 minutes. It was good times. I was able to get to the flag once...but they had some weird rules in it for getting caught too. Apparently, if their finger happens to graze your toe just a little bit, you're supposedly "caught" and have to stop to get taken to the side. So you have to make a clean break for the flag.

    For my game of choice, I much prefer old fashioned SHARKS 'N MINNOWS...battledome style. As long as no one dies, anything goes.


    This was a nice recovery/taper workout for me. I was pretty beat up early this week, and took yesterday off. Tonight being light, and tomorrow I won't swim either since I have to work some OT ($$$$$$). I'll then have a masters meet in Spokane on Sunday morning which should be fun. 100, 200, 400 IM, 200 Fly, 200 Free. SHould be a piece of cake.
