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. 09.20.12 - Thursday workout

    Swam w/ Dave, Dave and Roger. New challenge set today. Here's the plan for the next 10 weeks:
    * take your goal time in any 200 event and divide it by 4 - This is your target time for a 4 x 50 set
    * Swim 6 x 50 descending on a comfortable pace to get up to speed
    * Rest 1-2 minutes
    * Swim 4 x 50 on your target time + 20 seconds making sure you make your target time on each 50.
    * Each week for 10 weeks, drop your interval by 1 second and keep making the target time.
    * Week 11 is a timed broken 200 on 50s taking 10 seconds in between each 50.
    My best 200 free is a 2:04. I want to break 2:00 so, my target time is :30. This week, my interval was :50, next week, :49... after that :48, :47.... down to :41.
