TJ's Blog of Slow Swimming!

This is a log (on the web of course...making it a blog) of my practices and meet results. This way, I can track my progress and hopefully entertain others with my tales of slowness!

  1. 5-25-09 EZ Aerobic Free

    11:00 AM to Noon at the Jamerson YMCA (SCY) coached by Jann.

    400 free
    200 alternate one arm free (breathe to non-stroking side)/free swim

    Main Set:
    6x75 on 1:15 - I went 1:07s
    12x25 fast on :45 - I went mostly :17s and :18s
    8x25 fast flutter kick on :45 - I actually made all of these and held right around :35 for them. I was excited to make an entire kick set even though it was an easy one.
    300 recovery kick - mix of flutter, breast, and dolphin

    12x37.5 free - work turns with no bad habits, i.e., breathing on the last stroke in and/or the first stroke out!

    100 easy free

    2350 yards

    Notes: I had nothing in the tank today. Most likely because I got little sleep over the weekend with two dogs in a hotel for the first time and trying to finish up with preparations for our move to Germany! No excuses though! I hope that nothing comes up and I get to my last practice here in the States on Wednesday. I found an indoor LCM pool with a Masters team in Erlangen (Germany), but arganized practices are only twice per week. Oh well, hopefully I can get in a routine quickly and figure out a way to get to the pool on my own to get some quality work in.
