    Swam on my own before coaching ...

    Lots of fly drills focusing on body position, rhythm and feel. I did some full stroke swimming - several 25s trying to hold an ideal 100 pace, a 50 and a 75 once again just trying to get into a good pace for a 100. I have been told I have a good stroke and tempo for a 50 but not for a 100.

    Feelin' pretty good going into my meet on Saturday. I'm swimming the 50/100 free, 100 IM and 50 fly.

    Yeah! I made it to the gym last night and did a solid weight and core routine. Lots of free weights, bosu/balancing/core work, ball work and stretch cords. Definitely feeling it today. Tonight I swim on my own before I coach ... I plan on doing some easy swimming and some drills. I'd also like to get some sprint 25s in maybe a 50 or two and maybe a couple of 12.5s.

    Had an appointment prior to practice so I was about 20 minutes late and missed warm-up (boo).

    200 ez (set was 3 x 200 on 3:00 descend)

    4 x (100 Free moderate 1:30, 50 swim with over kick on 1:00, 2 x 25 kick on :25, 75 fast) We had a lot of rest after the 75s usually about a minute and a half.

    100 ez

    100 for time at approximate 500 pace - went a 1:14 (not in a million years could I do that for a 500) 2 x 50 kick fast on 1:00

    50 ez

    5 x 100 for time with :20 rest
    Sure enough - 1:15, 1:15, 1:16, 1:17, 1:17

    100 ez

    I feel like I'm missing a set ... hmm ...

    Sunday I went to a fly/breast clinic at my home pool. Learned some great pointers. Ended up being in the water for about 3 hours - legs are definitely sore as I actually *gasp* kicked breaststroke during the clinic.

    Tonight the plan is:
    Spin
    Abs Class
    Swim

    Wendesday Night's Plan:
    Spin
    Weights

    Thursday's Plan:
    Swim (on own) with lots of kicking and drills

    Friday:
    Off

    Saturday:
    Meet!

    odds - free drill
    evens - fly drill

    5 x (200 on 2:50, 100 choice fast on 2:00 (I did 50 fly/50 free) 50 kick on 1:10)

    100 EZ

    5 x 100 fast on 3:00
    We did 3 (I went 1:08, 1:08, 1:10) then the coach offered a get out swim I asked if it was a 50 or another 100 he said it'd be a 50 so I stepped up. Then he said he lied it's a 100 break 1:09 and we are all done - The two guys I was swimming with went on each side of me (in other lanes) and I went for broke - 1:06. Very good time for me in practice.

    Did not swim or kick on Thursday because I have/had swimmer's ear ... it hasn't been bothering me as much lately so I think it'll be okay.

    Swam at a meet at Indiana University on Saturday ... just did the 50 fly/back/free and 100 free. Not happy with any of them really ... HORRIBLE finish on the 50 fly - needed at least 1 more stroke, maybe 2. 50 back actually wasn't bad I'm going to keep working on that event. BAD finish in the 50 free, too. 100 free I just couldn't get going on.

    Sunday I went running - only about 2 miles, kept a good pace though.

  11. Wednesday Feb 11

    Last night I hit the weights for the first time since the back injury. I'm not ready to hit the lower body hard core yet and not sure I want to try the weight circuit I was doing when I hurt myself so I stuck with light upper body weights.

    45 minutes of spin class - more like 50 she kept us long.

    Thursday night is kick night - my hope/plan is to get a solid 1200-1500 kick in. Hopefully a mix of flutter and dolphin. We'll see ...

  12. The past few days

    I am not good about keeping up with this but I'm working on it ...

    Saturday I swam most of workout - didn't quite get to 3000 because I was having lots of trouble breathing. (ever so often my lungs get all pissy and I can't breathe - even the inhalor didn't really work). I ran outside in the 50 degree weather Saturday afternoon - only about 2 miles.

    Sunday I had my first meet of the season - not great swims or times. I suppose this is what a lack of training does ... eh, oh well. I've got another meet this weekend.

    Monday night I swam - not a bad workout took it fairly easy and made it a recovery workout.

    Tuesday night - 45 minute spin class, 30 minute ab class ...

    100 w/u was all I got in b/c ab class runs right up to practice.

    Our set was 30 x 100 on 1:30
    they were arranged in sets of 5
    swim, drill, hold :10 under the send off

    I did this instead

    2 x (5x 100 free, 2 x 50 kick, 100 free, 2 x50 kick)
    1 x (5 x 100 free, 2 x 50 kick, 3 x 100 free)

    100 EZ

    5 x 25 from the middle of the pool

    175 cool down

    I am pretty thrased today. I'm planning on going to spin class tonight and getting a little lifting in.

  13. Thursday Night

    I coach on Thursday nights so if I want to get any type of workout in I need to get to the gym early. I was hoping to do a bit of weights and swim but got stuck at work so I didn't even get an hour in the pool.

    I stole one of Mo's workouts ... didn't get to the main set but seeing as right now I need to focus on getting in the water and getting back into shape the sprints weren't necessary.

    500 w/u

    300 kick

    12 x 50
    1-3 fist
    4-6 dps
    7-9 build/ez
    10-12 fast/ez

    10 x 50 from the middle of the pool working on speed into and out of turns
    1:00

    100 ez


    The plan is to swim the saturday am workout then go to spin class ...

    First meet on Sunday - I entered the 50/100/200 free and 50 fly and back. Not sure if I'll swim them all.

    My arms were hurtin' after this one. This is the first time I put two good workouts back to back in months - at least since October but I suspect it might have been July.

  16. Last Night

    I am (for me) slow, fat and out of shape. I am also recovering from a back injury - fun!

    Anyway ...

    3 x 100 drill/swim
    4 x 50 fast 1:30

    3 x 300 Fr
    3 x 200 Fr
    2 x 100 Fr

    50 EZ

    4 x 50 drill swim easy

    I am having a mental lapse as to whether or not we did more than that ... it felt better than I thought it would ... this season may not be lost. I am slow and splashy but oh well. My goal was to get in the water 3 times this week (that was #2) and to do one other workout - pending how the back felt.

    I am going to attempt spin class tonight praying that my back will hold ...
