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. 5-22-09 EZ Aerobic Free/Back

    by , May 22nd, 2009 at 03:03 PM (TJ's Blog of Slow Swimming!)
    11:00 AM to noon at the Downtown YMCA (SCM) coached by Jann.

    Warmup:
    400 free
    200 IM drill

    Main Set (work on great form and don't worry about speed):
    Twice through:
    1x150 free on 3:00
    2x75 stroke on 2:00
    2x75 dolphin kick on 2:00
    6x50 free on 1:00 (I did odds back :-))

    Warmdown:
    400 free - alternate 100 swim/100 6 kick and roll

    2500 meters

    Notes:
    I am down to two practices left after today's, so I was kind of sad. These intervals were not hard, but coaches instructions said good form and no speed worries. I tried to get that easy speed feel for backstroke. I felt like I was getting it a couple of times, but I still need to work on my endurance quite a bit. Back requires more kicking for me to keep a strong stroke. I'm just ecstatic that I am actually able to throw in some back from time to time on freestyle intervals!
