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. Sluggish but did have a few good swims

    Overall I still feel sluggish. My foam roller is my life saver and has been helping to resolve the shoulder issues. Now I am on to the nutrition part. I need to loose about 25 pounds and am trying to get serious about it. I realize my strength may not be there during the rest of this winter season. If I can get rid of this weight then I can get back some of my speed.

    So I sacrifice caleries and put in all kinds of workouts.

    500 free every 4th lap back
    500 free kick w/zoomers

    5x100@1:30 w/paddles as 50 free/50 back went 1:24, 1:27, 1:27, 1:27, 1:29

    8x25@:45 fly w/kickboard as a bouy
    200 fly kick on back w/monofin
    8x25@:45 FAST fly w/monofin held :15

    500 free w/snorkle alternate 100 swim/100 catchup drill at the hips

    Total 2600 yards
    Swim Workouts
