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. 09.18.12 - Tuesday workout

    Swam w/ Roger, Dave, Dave, Kyle, Ray and Keith. Did some distance today. Found some speed here and there but I'm still a little beat up.


    600 Warm up

    1000 Free (12:35) - Open turns on 200s
    2:35, 2:35, 2:32, 2:28, 2:25
    100 Easy
    Targeting a 1:15 pace. Went out a little slow. Could have split it better and made it.

    2 x 500 Free - 7:30 (6:05, 6:10)
    100 Easy
    Really kind of disappointed in these. I don't mind the time so much as how badly I faded at the end of them.

    5 x 200 IM - 3:00
    100 Easy
    Held 2:55s. Not too bad. Lots of IM for me with a drag suit. Fly was beginning to hurt at the end but I hung on and made the last one on 2:52.

    20 x 25 - :40 (2 no breath/2 hard kick)
    The kick really sucked up all my oxygen for the no breathers. I struggled a lot on this set and barely made some of these.

    5 x 100 - 1:30, Descend (1:20, 1:18, 1:12, 1:10, 1:05)
    100 Easy

    200 Cool down
