    --------------------------------

    Decided to get up early this morning in order to squeeze a swim in, but the Triathlon Train was not at the station. Probably good since it took me about twenty minutes to actually get out of bed. I was able to get in a good workout, mix of aerobic with some speed play, and get to work on time. Back in the pool on Wednesday...

  4. The complete Pieces of IM workout

    Today I swam mid-day at the Y:

    1000 scy warmup (400s, 200k, 200p, 200d/s)

    Pieces of IM sets:
    8 x 25, 2 each stroke, IM order, odds K, evens S, @ :30
    7 x 50 IM pieces (50 fly, 25 FL / 25 BK, 50 BK, 25 BK/25 BR, etc) @ :50—strong and controlled
    6 x 75 IM pieces @ 1:20, odds K/S/K, evens S/D/S
    5 x 100 IM pieces @ 1:30, solid effort on all
    4 x 125 IM pieces @ 2:00, done as 50 build / 25 sprint (turns inclusive) / 50 easy
    3 x 150 IM pieces @ 2:30, 90% effort
    2 x 175 IM pieces @ 3:15, all swimming between flags easy, turns as pretty as possible on first 175, and as fast as possible on 2nd 175
    1 x 200 IM fast
    (Masters minute between each set)

    Warmdown: 5 x 200 FR, odds S, evens pull with paddles

    I’d started this pieces of IM set at a workout earlier this month, and had to get out after the first 150. I’d been wanting to do the whole thing ever since, and today’s solo workout was a fine opportunity for that.
