  1. turning bright red lol

    by , October 25th, 2012 at 10:22 PM (Colleen Conway's blog)
    Lately in practice I have been turning red... and its in my hands and arms lol. I'm not sure if its because I havent been eating great this past week or because of getting back into shape after a week off, I dont know lol.

    Todays practice with the masters team was:

    500 free warmup (4th lap back)
    8 x 50 (evens fly drill, odds free 3 stroke, 8 kick)
    6x 50 (1 lap under, 1 lap above)
    8 x 50 choice (i did all fly) on .50
    400 free (i was dyinggggg) on 5.30
    6 x 50 choice ( i did fly) on .50
    300 free ( once again i was dyinggg) on ?
    4 x 50 fly on .50
    200 free
    2x 50 fly on .50
    and then 2x 25s race fly off the blocks

    then 100 warmdown (yeah I need to do more)

    This got my blood pumping. Its funny because on my own I will do more distance work, more pull and I might say ehhh what do I need the team practice for, but honestly I have loved joining this team so much. It keeps me doing intervals, burning, and I love the people. Its awesome. I seriously love my Ocean County YMCA Masters team, so thankful I live near a team like this!

    Comments:
    • Tired/sore from weights the night before.
    • Set 1 - Was going to do 400s straight, the changed it after doing the first 100.
    • Set 2 - More challenging due to leg fatigue from air squats and leg extensions from the previous day.
    • Set 3 - First 300 was awkward, second 300 better, but sloppy - 200s were almost in a groove
    • Warm down - great~!

    Just an easy pre-meet swim today.

    Heat sheets for the Sprint Classic are up.
    http://www.swimphone.com/mobile/meet....cfm?smid=4129. Awkward -- I'm right next to Teen Fort in 25 breast.

    Had a consulting appt with my PRP doc today. Because of the complicted MRI diagnosis, he wants me to see his elbow specialist to rule out surgery for the tears. This really does not thrill me, but I have an appt Nov. 1. I'm going to continue to hope that it is not surgical since I am still swimming and there is not great weakness. The tears and tendinosis can be treated by PRP, probably need 3 rounds. In retrospect, I am cross with myself that I did not get an MRI last November. I've wasted a lot of time and money on a misdiagnosis. And I likely caused more damage by returning to lifting too early, thinking it was just tennis elbow. If I'm ever injured again, I'm going to err on the side of getting an MRI right away.

    On another note, I'm not sure I should restart weights after Sundays meet. With upcoming meets on Nov. 18 and Dec 7-8, it might not make any sense. I can't decide whether to do a little core work and jumping or lay off entirely.

    by , October 25th, 2012 at 07:54 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I was surprised not to have my legs feel sore after the weight machines. In fact they were as strong as yesterday. I'll probably be eating my words by mid day once DOMS sets in.

    8x50@1:00 free odds descend to 200 pace, evens easy went 41, 39, 37, 36

  10. Wed. Oct. 24, 2012 7:00-9:00pm

    by , October 25th, 2012 at 12:50 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Back to the grindstone again, and it was tiring. After taking it fairly easy for the last half of the past week, plus the 2 day meet over the weekend, I was pretty well spent. No practice Monday, and a pretty easy swim yesterday, didn't really get me completely "ready" for go time today, but I made it.


    Warmup:

    400 Swim (25 Free EZ, 25 V-Sit Scull, 25 Breast EZ, 25 Back kick)

    8 x 25 V-Sit Scull @ 1:00
    (600/600)

    10 x 100 Kick w/ fins @ 1:25 did SDK on back - went 1:16-1:17s
    (1000/1600)

    Main Set:


    8 x 300 as:
    • 200 IM w/ last 50 Free FAST @ 3:15 Desc. 1-4, 5-8
    • 2 x 50 Free FAST @ 1:00
    • 1:00 rest after round #4
    Desc'd from 2:40-2:31s but couldn't really get moving. The 50s weren't too hot either, going :30/:31s, with a rare :29 here and there200 EZ
    (2600/4200)


    5 x 300 Free Pull @ 4:30 just cruise them, body roll, breathe @ 3
    went consistent 3:45s
    (1500/5700)

    6 x 50 Choice Stroke AFAP @ 1:30 (did all Fly)
    :30/:31/:31/:30/:30/:29
    I felt good here on these at the end of practice, and was surprised how fast I was able to go.

    200 EZ
