  6. Wed., Sept. 26, 2012 7:00-9:00pm

    by , September 27th, 2012 at 12:46 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Warmup:

    500 Choice (did Free) DPS
    300 Breast Kick w/ board

    10 x 50 Free Pull @ 1:00 focus on breathing position, hand entry

    At this point the coach asks:
    Do you want to do the kick set now or later?
    For real? I voiced my opinion for right now to aid my body in the potential cramping that could happen later.

    10 x 100 Kick w/ fins @ 2:00
    (50 "Core Kick", 25 Flutter Kick Right Side/25 Left Side) - went 1:25s, still last in the lane
    --ended up being an "easy" kick set...wondering now what's coming next...



    Main Set: (8 Rounds)
    • 200 IM @ 3:30 "cruise it", but work the walls (I desc. them from 2:38-2:30 with minimal effort)
    • 2 x 50 SPRINT @ 1:15
    In Rounds 1/2, the 50s were Fly (went :30/:31s)
    3/4 were Back (went :35s)
    5/6 were Breast (went :37/:38s)
    7/8 were Free (went :28s, final 50 was :26.5)
    Coach John said these were great to end a 2400 yard set with that kind of speed. He said I looked like I was movin'. I guess I'm in shape now.

    200 Free EZ

    400 Kick w/ board build EZ to fast

    200 Free EZ

    -------------------------
    5500 Yards

    Side question from the coach after practice:
    Wonder how Jared (15 year old kid) feels about having a 35 year old guy leading the workouts?
    I'm not going to ask, but I know I'm working my butt off. Funny thing is that he and the other guys were carrying on a continual conversation between every rep along the way through the main set. I was trying to regain my breathing to be ready for the next go.
