Mixing it up this year

I really like my toys and will continue to use them. The mix will be both distance and sprints. My focus for this year is to maintain my 200 fly time.

  1. Distance Day

    Felt really good today which was surprising, I really expected to hurt more from my weightlifting.

    Last night I gave my kids an easy set of 8x100@1:30 some did 8x75 instead and yet the ones I knew would get out with this ailment or that ailment after doing only 2 they did not disappoint me. So when they tried to return to their lanes mid set I told them all to go sit in the bleachers until it was over. Rude awakening. I think they will think twice about doing that again. Some of these kids can beat me in a 1650.

    So this old lady that is 3 times their age and has a bad back, doesn't recover well and carries too much extra weight did this workout this morning:

    500 Free
    500 Free kick w/zoomers every 3rd lap fast
    15x100 free w/paddles & bouy
    #1-5@1:35 held 1:22's
    #6-9@1:30 held 1:21's
    #10-12@1:25 held 1:20's
    #13-14@1:20 held 1:18's
    #15@1:15 went 1:18 still trying to make that one
    5x100@:15RI #1 back, #2 breast kick, #3 fly 1 arm drill, #4 breast pull, #5 back
    500 w/snorkle as 200 free/50 kick/200 free/50 kick

    Total 3500 yards
