  1. Back from Vacation - Easy Aerobic Day

    by , November 4th, 2019 at 10:41 AM (Middle Aged Distance)
    So I went on vacation last week with the full intention of swimming while I was there (I was with a friend but she mostly worked during the day so I figured I'd have time to myself). Turns out the time change really messed with me and those mornings were spent sleeping instead of swimming but, the trip was fun! I walked anywhere from 7-10 miles a day exploring so it wasn't a total workout loss.

    Got back in today and felt a little sore at first but not as bad as I thought. Here was a short one to get the feel of the water back:

    W/U (800):

    4x200 sw/pull/k w/fins/ IM drill w/ fins

    Main (1000):

    10x100 swim smooth @ 1:20 (or get about 10 sec rest)

    Recovery (300):

    6x50 @ 1:00
    odd - bk swim
    even - fr drill

    Fast (200):

    4x50 @ 1:30
    1 - 70%, 2 - 80%, 3 - 90%, 4 - ALL OUT

    200 easy

    Total: 2500
    Swim Workouts
