    Sun Jan 27, 2013 HOUR SWIM POSTAL

    I attempted the Postal on Wed at noon but did hard work outs, Wed morning, Tuesday, & Monday. Around 3k I felt terrible, so I stopped.
    I knew Larry, Dick, & Sharon were going to do it on Sunday, so I figured I'd take another shot or not.

    I swam Fast Friday hard but took it easy at Saturday practice then got a lot of sleep with a 3 hour Saturday afternoon nap and a lazy sleep late Sunday morning. Despite staying up late Saturday night watching "Banshee"

    I also shaved & just decided to swim long smooth & easy.

    When I got the pool, we picked our lanes & I warmed up a little, probably swam around 400. then we dove in for our start at 12:10.
    I split the lane 1 with Dick & swam next to Larry who was in lane 2 beside me.

    I dove in & swam long smooth steady. I could see the digital clock and had a sense of time & pace. To my surprise I didn't stop & felt OK at half way

    Days Till SC Zones

    Yesterday at noon practice, I attempted the hour swim, but I swam a hard on both Tue and Wed mornings, which proved to be a bad idea. We dove in at 12:05 & I swam 3000, but felt like I was on the verge of cramps & I started getting hot so I decided to end my attempt & maybe try again on Sunday, or not.

    Today I didn't set my alarm and woke up at 5:55, which is late, I need to leave my house by 5:45 to get to 6:30 practice with good traffic. But I hit the road to do whatever I could, & encountered much more traffic than normal which delayed my arrival.

    50 easy
    100 fr Fast for time
    50 easy
    then swim for 8:00 neg split
    (in round 1, I missed the 4 x 100 fr & the 50 easy, started with the 3 x 100's )
    I built into this

    went 54 from a push on the last one in round 2

    skipped stuff on the 8:00 swims

    4 x 50 free no interval
    1) 3 breaths, 2) 2 breaths, 3) 1 breath, 4) no breath

  20. Monday Dec 31st, 2012 400 KICK for Time

    by , December 31st, 2012 at 12:22 PM (Ande's Swimming Blog)
    Monday Dec 31st, 2012 400 KICK for Time
    Tomorrow I will be a FINA 50!

    Lately I've been preparing for the 400 Kick for Time
    I showed up yesterday for Sunday practice and the pool was set up LCM, and the 400 Kick for time is SCY, so it was a no go. Showed up today for 5:30 am to 7:00 practice & the pool was still LCM, did most of the practice, then got out 15 minutes early, put on a B70 jammer & gave the 400 another shot,
    my 1st 2 tries were 5:32 & 5:24,
    today I went 5:08.11
    050 33 0:33
    100 37 1:10
    150 39 1:49
    200 39 2:28 1:18
    250 40 3:08
    300 40 3:48 1:20
    350 40 4:28
    400 40 5:08.11 1:20 2:40
    went out a bit too hard but it didn't feel like it at the time
    stuck with the NO STROKE RULE which I really wanted to break but didn't
    wore a jammer

    April 5, 6 & 7 in Austin at the UT swim Center and you want to do some relays

    Swam: Sun, mainly worked on flutter kick with a board, doing fast 50's & 100's
    Did not swim on Saturday

    Today:
    Whitney Coached
    5:30 - 7:00 dove around 6:40
    LCM UT Swim Center main pool
    Swam with Todd (who hasn't swum in 10 days) & Marcio (who's swum 3 times in the past 2 months) I was very impressed with how they hung in there and did the practice.
    Trained beside David, Larry, Sharon, & Gull


    Warm up
    assigned 800
    dove in late, did 3 or 400

    Main Set

    8 x 150 FR LCM
    2 on 2:15
    2 on 2:10
    2 on 2:05
    2 on 2:00
    Made em leading the lane

    assigned 800
    did 6 x 100 K

    We did 8 x150 same as above but PULL
    Todd went 1st, he's faster when he has oars,
    made em all again, held 1:55's & 6's, 1:52 on last one
    drafting was much easier than leading

    ASSIGNED: another 800 but I got out to prepare for my 400 kick

    thanking about doubling
