The Labours of SwimStud

Ah just my workouts and meets etc...
The odd random thought and I hope nugget of information from a non top ten/elite yukster, which might be useful to other regular guys in speedos!

  1. Argh Gosh Darn It!

    ...or something like that...

    I keep reinjuring my knee...ran 3 miles Thursday nothing..not a peep...did maybe 3.5 to 4 and I feel it tighten and now it's inflamed and painful again. Taking off all week...no running for 2 weeks...then see how it goes...if it pulls again...going to see a doc.

    Doesn't feel like "damage" but I'm not an ortho...

  2. Summer's over

    Well as usual after summer ends I tend to restart my blog and I've had a decent month of September except for some minor knee strain that stemmed from rolling my ankle down a pothole on July 4th,,,no it was a race not a drinking accident. Today I modified this from Fort's Workouts Thread...

    WORKOUT #5: SPEED

    Warm up:

    400 FR
    4 x 50 Fin Kick Under-overs at 1:15
    1 x 100 EZ
    1 x 200 Fin Kick W/board
    1 x 100 EZ

    Main Sets:

    8 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
    1 x 100 EZ

    4 x 50 AFAP w/fins, on 2:00
    100 EZ
    Best was a :29 worst a :32
    Master's Minute or 2

    30 x 25 @ :35/:40/:45
    -- pick goal time, which should be 100 race pace
    -- when you miss your goal time, skip the next rep
    I set :17 as a goal since it was after some hard sprints and I went on :40. I posted 14s to 17s but with 2 analogue clocks the sync may not have been quite on. Regardless I found it tough going at reps 17-22 but then it got easier again.

    1 x 200 EZ

    Total: 3000
