swimsuit addict

About a year after beginning this blog, I got interested in open-water swimming, and it's been my passion ever since. Here's a list of some swims I've done.

  1. Just another magic Monday

    I enjoyed a nice swim with Rondi at Riverbank this morning:

    1000 lcm warmup (200s, 200k, 200p, 200d/s)

    Magic 700s
    A magic 700 combines two things in an alternating 1/1/2/1/3/1/4/1 (lengths) pattern. I did 3 as follows:
    1 x magic 700, alternating FR/BK
    1 x backwards magic 700, alternating FR / ST (IM order)
    1 x magic 700, alternating kick (FL and BK) / FR swim

    400 pull with paddles

    15 x 100, done as 5 x (100 FR, 50 FR/50 BK, 100 BK @ 2:00), goal was to descend effort within each set of 3 so that 100 BKs were fast [1:35-1:40s]

    500 warmdown + play
