After a long rest

I am a former swimmer, trying to get back into competitive swimming. I have been out of the pool 20 years and put on some extra pounds. This blog primarily documents my journey back to competitive swimming. And I should say having fun along the way!!!

  1. Budapest Week 2 - Monday

    by , May 8th, 2017 at 02:05 PM (After a long rest)
    This morning should have been real course but for some reason the life guards did not flip the pool so we swam scy.

    i felt pretty stiff stiff from weights yesterday but had a decent workout. my daughters workout group were next to me and I am so glad I decided not to join them. They did 3xT20s trying to increase effort 1-3. She went just shy of 1900 on the last T20. OMG she has improved so much in such a short time.

    My workout was not not easy but I decided to do a different aerobic set.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :50

    main sets
    8x75 kick on 1:20
    4x(300 on 3:30, 200 on 2:20, 100 on 1:10)
    i decided to do 1min between rounds today which made this a lot easier
    200 easy
    16x25 back on :30 holding 200 pace

    warm down
    300 easy

    The kick I was coming in on 1:05-1:07s. I held 1:05 pace throughout the aerobic set despite discomfort in my left shoulder. The 25s I was off on my pace and held :16s. I was pretty tired after this workout.

    My daughter and I had a great discussion about her season goals on the drive home. I cherish these kinds of discussions.
