I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

I swim at Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center and sometimes/or as necessary at the Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC. One of the best locations for OWS in SWFL is at Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, FL with the SWFL Open Water Swimming Group.
When the occasional circumstances require being close to home, I can do a dip and kick at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool. More about me...

    by , November 23rd, 2012 at 03:24 PM (I swim, therefore I am)
    SCY@Catalina Isle Community HOA Pool (1 Length/12.5 yards)
    Air temp of 53, pool at 77, 100% water clarity.
    Sunny skies with humidity at 49%

    Warm Up
    200 yds FR

    *Set 1*
    5x400 FR on 1min rest
    Build effort by 400, 1-5

    *Set 2*
    4x250 Kick on 1min rest
    #1-3 Free, #2-4 BR

    *Set 3*
    10x100 FR with 1min rest
    as 25K, 25S AFAP (no breath as able)

    200 FR warm down

    • Another beautiful crisp SWF morning. Did FR endurance maintenance, FR/BR kicking, and FR speed.
    • Doing the FR AFAP with no breath was much harder than expected, and sometimes I cheated with a breath before the flip turn.
    • This is a good little pool for doing kicking sets, faster swimming with bursts and breath control, more so than doing distance swims.
