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. Esprit de lane

    Today I swam TNYA’s mid-day workout at John Jay College. It was a crowded pool—there were 7 in most lanes, including mine—but with considerate and mindful lanemates all things are possible. Mine kept me laughing in the intervals between swims as well—it was a reminder of why I really love swimming with this team.

    Here’s what I did:

    950 scy warmup: 300s, 7 x 50 kick @ :10 rest, 300 alt free/back by 50

    12 x 25 @ :30: odds BK w/ 10 underwater kicks, evens FR

    500 pull, with breathing pattern [I just did bilateral]

    2x thru (First round = FR, 2nd round = BK on last 25 of single swims, then BK for all 4 50s)
    150 @ 2:30
    100 @ 1:40
    50 @ 1:10
    4 x 50 desc. @ 1:00 [31 on fastest FR, 35 on fastest BK]
    50 easy
    1:00 rest

    Then we repeated all of the above from the 500 on, only skipping the last 150/100/50 on the last round because we were running out of time.
