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. 11.15.12 - Thursday workout

    Great! The blogs are back! Swam w/ Dave, Dave, and Keith. Got the latest psych sheet for the NAC Masters Sprinting Turkey Classic. I'm seeded first or second in way too many events. Now, I'm second guessing my times! Gotta keep telling myself it is for fun. I picked today's sets in order to get ready for the meet Sunday. Lots of 125s and 75s to get used to the SCM distance.


    700 Warm up

    10 x 125 - 2:00
    * Odds hard stroke (made 1:35-1:45)
    * Evens easy free
    100 easy
    I did the first fly and made 1:35 or so. First 75 felt great. Last 50 felt horrible. Rest were breaststroke. Started on 1:45 and tweaked things until I could make 1:40 on the last couple. Fly is in the ballpark of my seed times. Breaststroke is a few seconds off. Hopefully the dive and the competition help me go a little faster.

    10 x 75 - 1:15
    * Odds hard breaststroke (made 1:00-1:05)
    * Evens easy free
    100 Easy

    4 x 200 - 3:00, descend (2:35, 2:28, 2:23, 2:18)
    2:00 Rest
    Timed 225 (2:35)
    75 Easy
    This is close to where I want to be Sunday. The first 100 was very fast and I was feeling the cumulative yardage of the workout at this point. I should be faster at the meet.

    5 x 50 - 1:00 SDK w/ fins down, easy back
    6 x 50 Pull - :50 Descend (made :27s at the end)
    6 x 50 Kick - 1:00
    4 x 50 Pull - 1:00 (made :29-:32)

    200 Cool down

    (5250 Total)
