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. 5-18-09 Fast Aerobic Free

    by , May 18th, 2009 at 02:16 PM (TJ's Blog of Slow Swimming!)
    11:00 AM to Noon at the Jamerson YMCA (SCY), coached by Jann.

    Warmup:
    200 free
    100 catchup
    100 free
    I alternated 50 free and 50 back for the warmup.
    4x50 free drill on 1:05 - 25 fisted free/25 free swim

    Main Set:
    2x100 on 1:45 - I went 1:27 and 1:30
    4x75 descend on 1:30 - 1:15, 1:10, 1:07, 1:04
    2x100 on 1:45 (faster than first two) - I went 1:25 and 1:27
    2x50 fast on 1:00 - I went :40 for both
    4x25 with a 'turbo' kick on :25
    - Repeat
    100s - 1:30, 1:30
    75s - 1:15, 1:13, 1:09, 1:05
    100s - 1:28, 1:25
    50s - :40, :40
    And the 25s just plain hurt!!!

    Warmdown:
    175 free
    4 walkaround starts - go hard for 1/2 length then easy to the wall - I did two fly, 1 breast, and 1 free, then I threw in an extra backstroke start and got almost all the way to the 15m mark!

    2475 yards

    Notes:
    The 25s with the big kick hurt! My starts were all pretty good except I feel like I'm not getting great distance off the blocks and I don't seem to get a good arch on my backstroke starts making for a nice smack on entry!
