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. 09.26.12 - Wednesday workout

    Swam /w John, Ray, Dave, Dave, Leah and Wendy(?). Felt pretty awful today. I guess I pushed a little too hard yesterday and paid the price. Still, there were some bright spots.


    600 Warm up

    4 x 125 Free - 1:45 (made 1:35s)
    100 Easy

    3 x 300 Free - 4:30
    100 Easy
    This where things fell apart. Make 3:45 on the first and 3:35 on the second. Dave led out #3 very fast on a quest for 3:15 or something like that and I foolishly followed. After about 100 yards, I felt like I did yesterday after the 400 IM. After that, it just wasn't pretty.

    4 x 125 IM - 2:00 (made 1:45-1:50)
    100 Easy

    8 x 75 - 1:15
    * 1-4 Convert fly to back
    * 5-8 Convert free to kick
    100 Easy

    10 x 50 - 1:00 Underwater down w/ fins, sprint back
    I really need to do more stuff like this. Made a full 25 yards on the first couple. After that, I was able to make the 15m mark or better. Did 5 on my back, 5 on front. Sprints were a little off the sprint pace but fast.

    200 cool down
