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.

  1. 01.11.13 - Friday workout

    by , January 11th, 2013 at 12:51 PM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Roger, Dave, Dave, Aundrey, Meredith and Danny. Everyone contributed ideas to each set.

    600 Warm up

    16 x 50 - 1:00 down no breath, back easy

    1200 Timed. I did open turns on the 250s trying to hold a 1:12 pace (keep clock on top). Went 2:55 on first one trying to chase Meredith. After that, it was 3:05, 3:05 and 3:05 for 12:10 at the 1000. Went 2:24 on the last 200 for a 14:34 total. That's a little under a 1:13 pace which isn't too bad considering I swam 1:11s in my last 1650 at a meet. I still could do better and chasing Meredith hurt badly. I prefer to start easy and build my speed.
