My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

    Swam w/ Dave, Dave and Mary at the HSV Nat. Matt coached.


    600 Warm up

    2 rounds of:
    * 4 x 150 Pull - 2:30 Descend (2:05->1:50ish)
    * 4 x 100 Free - 1:45 Descend (1:25->1:17)

    4 rounds of:
    * 4 x 50 Kick, no board or fins :10 ri
    * :40 rest
    * 200 Choice stroke, 1st 100 Fast, 2nd 100 Brisk
    * :40 rest
    On the first 200, I did breaststroke. Next two were backstroke. Admittedly, I picked backstroke because a hard 100 lcm short axis stroke followed by a not quite so hard 100 lcm short axis stroke wasn't too appealing to me. But, I sucked it up for the final 200 and swam it fly. The first 50 was smooth and fast but whatever rhythm I had found on that 50 left me for the second. Ended up doing more survival fly for the last 100 but I made it.

    200 Cool down
