  5. Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011 Olympia Meet Results

    by , February 5th, 2011 at 10:04 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Had a good couple of swims today. Here they are:

    Oh yeah, I wore the Yingfa brand jammer that I just got in the mail last week, and loved it. Got a size L, and it was pretty good on size. I usually wear a size 30 for other suits.

    1650: splits by 100

    100 - 58.4
    200 - 1:04.2
    300 - 1:05.2
    400 - 1:06.0
    500 - 1:06.5 (5:20.6)
    600 - 1:06.5
    700 - 1:07.2
    800 - 1:07.4
    900 - 1:06.8
    1000 - 1:07.6 (5:35.8) (10:56.4)
    1100 - 1:06.9
    1200 - 1:07.3
    1300 - 1:08.0 ugh feeling it here...ready to get out...
    1400 - 1:07.1
    1500 - 1:06.4 (5:37.2)
    1600 - 1:04.7
    1650 - 30.3
    Total Time: 18:07.57

    I beat my age group LMSC record by 6 seconds!!! So much better than missing it by 3 tenths... I'd been looking at that time for the past 2 years but never thought I would actually have an attempt to beat it.
    Beforehand I told my split taker (who was a former teammate of mine in agegroup) that I wanted to hit 5:20, 5:35, 5:35 by 500s and come home fast... I pretty much nailed that.
    My triceps, lats, and pecs were just killing my about 5 minutes afterward, and never really got the feeling loosened up throughout the remainder of the meet/cooldowns, but I had an amazing swim! I also came about 2 minutes, 15 secs. from my lifetime college best time! WOOHOO!!!!!

    200 Free:
    26.1 / 29.4 / 30.1 / 30.1 = 1:56.16

    100 IM:
    12.2 / 16.0 / 18.1 / 13.9 = 1:00.41 <-- A masters best! I actually won the event due to my breaststroke if you can believe that!

    50 Free leadoff mixed 200 free relay:
    24.96 I was getting pretty pooped by this point.

    100 Fly:
    12.7 / 15.1 / 15.2 / 15.8 = 59.22
    Same thing here...at least I broke a minute

    200 IM:
    12.8 / 16.1 = 28.9
    18.7 / 18.5 = 37.2
    19.5 / 20.8 = 40.1
    18.3 / 16.0 = 34.3 <--only sped this up the last 25 so I wouldn't get beat
    Total: 2:21.12

    The 200 IM was just a nice easy cooldown swim for me. I was originally entered with a 2:10, and the next fastest seeded time that showed up was a 2:23. I just swam it easy to stretch out, but I didn't let the 2nd place guy beat me at the end

    *** On a side note... I was just asked by our current Top Ten recorder person if I would be interested in the job since she's been doing it for so long. I said what the heck...ok. As of March I guess the job is mine. I'll find out how much work will be involved soon.

    I was nice to have a couple of days off from swimming over the weekend. My arms are a bit sore from playing with my Total Gym though, also cleaning up the yard finally that all the snow has left. We had snow early last fall and didn't get a chance to do it then.

    Warmup:
    300 Free
    300 IM Drill
    400 Free Pull
    200 Kick w/ board

    12 x 50 Free - 6 @ :50; 6 @ :45

    200 Free

    At this point we had 6 people in the lane, it was fun to say the least

    5 x 200 Free @ 2:45 (I held between 2:10-2:15 depending on when I would catch lap traffic)
    5 x 100 IM @ 1:45 (held 1:15s)

    8 x 75's from the blocks, with a "get out and walk around" to cool off. This repetitive diving/getting out and again was pretty tough really. Most of us were getting winded pretty quick.
    ---------------
    4100 Yards

    The pool was a little warm today, not quite like last week, but still about 84.

    Today, I was tired, and on top of that, the temperature regulator at our high school pool is going nuts. One day it can be freezing cold, and the next it can be hotter than ever. Today was one of those hot days. Even warmer than the dumb YMCA pool! Had to be at least 87 today! I'm going to start taking my thermometer from work in there and take stats on the day-by-day status. Then send the results to the school district or someone about how much cost they are probably wasting to heat xxx million gallons of water xx degrees up/down daily. Maybe then we can get the regulator fixed. Right now, they just don't care...even later they still probably won't care!

    100 Free
    200 Free Pull
    100 Free
    100 Kick

    10 x 50 Fly @ 1:00 (held 33's)

    300 Free Pull

    8 x 25 Kick w/ board & fins @ :45 AFAP
    8 x 25 Fly @ :45 AFAP

    5 x 200 Free relaxed, :30-45 rest
    ---------------
    2700 Yards

    I guess I'll call this a recovery day. It was just too hot to do anything decent. At least I had a couple good fly sets in there!
  13. Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011 (Part 2) 7:15pm at the Y

    by , January 28th, 2011 at 12:11 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Did it again...double workout today, that makes two days in a row. My wife's been off work all week so it gives me the chance to get out at night for a little extra workout time.
    Another workout in the 85 degree YMCA pool, but I take what I can get.

    Warmup:
    1 x 500 Free

    2 x 400 Free Pull @ 5:30 (held 4:45s)
    3 x 300 IM @ 5:00 NO FREE (4:15, 4:12, 4:05)
    4 x 200 Free - Had plans to do this, but after so much yardage over the past couple days, I'm done...had to skip these
    5 x 100 Free @ 1:20 (1:10s) I was pretty wiped out at this point

    100 Free EZ
    100 Dolphin Kick on Back
    100 Free EZ

    At this point I was at 3000 and ready to get out, but I decided to test my body to see how tired it really was, with this

    1 x 100 Free AFAP from a push (no diving at the Y pool)
    I went a 58.5 or so... I definitely was under 59 on the pace clock, but either way it was really good. This showed me that I'm still good for speed, even after all the punishment I'm giving myself.

    200 EZ and out
    --------------
    3300 Yards + 4200 Yards from the morning...
    7500 Yards for the day

    Feeling good today even after yesterday's pile of yardage.

    Warmup:
    300 Free
    300 Free Pull
    200 Kick

    1 x 400 Free (went a 4:35) - was planning on doing 4 of them, but then my buddies in the other lane wanted to do the IM workout so I lane-hopped and joined 'em in the front.

    2 x thru:
    1 x 300 IM :45 rest
    1 x 200 IM :30 rest
    1 x 100 IM :15 rest

    400 Free broken w/ :10 at each 100 (was holding about 1:05/:06

    6 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:00

    The other 2 guys got out at this point, but I still had more time to go (since I now get 1 1/2 hours a day!!!)

    Swam this part with the H.S. Coach. He's an ex-pretty-good-distance swimmer, so he pushed me pretty good. And he was just hopping in the water so his muscles were fresh.

    4 x 150's Free @ 2:00 (went 1:40, 1:42, 1:40, 1:39)
    I was really working these, with the coach coming in around 8 sec behind me, so not much room to slack off. Then after a minute or so he said let's do:
    4 x 100 Free @ 1:20

    100 EZ

    4200 Yards

    I'm tired

    by , January 26th, 2011 at 11:36 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    I ended up having swimming fever today. My wife was home from work tonight, so while the kids were in swim lessons at the Y, I was in the lap lanes working out for round 2. I was a bit sluggish in the water, partially from doing a double today, and partially from my daughter's group swimming in the 2 lanes next to me. They made a lot of waves. She's in the most advanced lesson, which is basically an intro to swim team. My 4 year old boy is in the beginners level. And my 1 1/2 year old girl is making swimming arm motions in the bleachers!

    Warmup:
    100 Free, 200 Kick, 200 Free
    2 x 250 Free Pull :30 rest

    4 x 100 IM @ 1:35
    4 X 25 Kick w/ board @ :30
    3 x 100 IM @ 1:30
    4 x 25 Kick w/ board @ :30
    2 x 100 IM @ 1:25
    4 x 25 Kick w/ board @ :30
    1 x 100 IM @ 1:20

    Yippie, I now get to swim for an hour and a half each morning now!!

    Getting ready for my meet in Olympia 2 Saturdays from now...I signed up for the 1650 and have to get in some decent training just to make me feel good about it. I of course am shooting for a time capable of putting me in the top ten, but we will have to see with the results.

    Broken 1650 as: (all intervals add up to 22:00)

  18. Sunday, Jan, 23, 2011 Meet Results from Flyapalooza

    My meet felt really good overall. Home meet at Wenatchee, had about 55 people there, but was well spaced out to give everyone plenty of rest (almost) almost...
    For being sick most of the week, I really swam quite well.

    200 Free Relay here - just swam a 50 (26 sec. or so) moderate speed (relays in our area are of no major importance other than scoring points toward the cumulative LMSC scoring champs for the duration of the season, so our home meet usually gets lots of points.

    200 Fly - 2:07.71 = This is the fastest I've gone since college days, and I finally got my age group LMSC record that I've been stalking for a while. The computer had a problem and wasn't able to get the splits posted on results, but I was told I went out in a 1:00 for the first 100. It felt really strong, and after finishing I gave the big fist pump in the air. I think I beat all the 200 free entries later in the meet with my time also.

    200 Medley Relay - 50 Fly (25.7)

    100 Fly - 57.39 = Also, the fastest I've done in Masters...someone said I was out in a 26.7 at the 50, so I guess it was 30.6 coming home...not bad, wanted to see a 56 though.

    200 Mixed Medley Relay - 50 Fly (nice and easy 15 meter dolphins off the walls both ways)

    50 Fly - 26.19 = This one was tough to get going fast enough over such a short distance. At least I beat the 50 split of my 100 earlier. I also swam it neck and neck with Lincoln Djang, and it came down to a fingernail at the end where I was 2nd overall, but still a good swim.

    100 Free - 56.27 = This was just a throwaway swim for me. It was a few minutes after the 50 fly, and I wasn't cooled down enough, so just swam it easy.

    Finally the 500 FLY - 6:11.74 = I was 2:20 at the 200 point. This was a really good swim, much easier than the 100 Free was...YES, I SAID EASIER THAN 100 FREE!!! I know you think I'm crazy, but I just settled into a pace and kept it going. Swam 3 strokes w/ breaths, 1 stroke head down. I only did 2 hand touches on the first 25, and the finish, and this was more so I could come into the walls with a double breath on the turns. BIG help.
    I ended up getting 2nd overall in the event to a girl going a 6:10. I was trying to run her down the last 100 since for some reason I was full of energy (not sure from where), but she accelerated also so as to not get beat by someone doing fly!!!

    Going to sleep well soon.

    Good job Packers!!!! I don't care who wins the 2nd game, because the Packers will beat them in the Superbowl anyway!!

    I had to go to work today to fix some of the machines in my department, but at least I got 5 hours of OT, but I missed out on sleeping in today. I went for a nice 'n easy swim at the Y afterward, and just felt sluggish, probably a bit tired too. Didn't sleep very well last night either. At least my head doesn't hurt anymore when I go 3-4 feet underwater, so that means for my swims tomorrow I should be okay.

    200 Free Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull

    Swam about 2000 yards of nice and easy stuff in preparation for my meet on Sunday. My head is still congested, and hurts when I go too far underwater, but it seems to be getting better. I actually got the pressure in my left ear to "pop" today, so maybe that is a good thing. Either way, I'm still racing on Sunday, just may not stay very deep underwater off the starts or turns.

    Goal times:
    200 Fly: 2:08.5
    100 Fly: 56.5
    50 Fly: 25.6
    100 Free: 52.0
    500 Fly: finish it and make my entry time of 6:15

    Plus I'll probably swim in 3 relays in addition to this, but those are just a bunch of 50's and fun too.
