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. 08.24.12 - Friday workout

    Swam w/ Kyle and Dave. Pretty light turnout but we had fun anyway. That is if by "fun" you mean 200 timed fly.


    600 Warm up

    4 x 300 - 4:30 Descend (4:00, 3:50, 3:44, 3:40)
    50 Easy
    Couldn't stay with Dave on the last one of these. Drag suit just got to me and I was ready to throw up after 200 yards.

    20 x 50 - 1:00
    (2 x IM order, IM order kick; 1 x IM Order down, IM kick back)
    50 Easy

    3 x 300 - 5:30 100 Stroke/100 Kick/100 Pull
    100 Easy

    200 Timed stroke - (Fly 2:50)
    Felt smooth and easy for 50 yards but I was still losing ground to Dave. At 100 yards, I was hurting but still able to keep going. After that, it was all pain. Thought about stopping at 150 but I gutted it out. For me, 2:50 is a really good drag suit time. It's less than 15 seconds off my meet time.

    200 Cool down
