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. Turducken season approcheth!

    A less determined swimmer would have given up as she waited, and waited, for the much delayed 1 train this morning. I was glad I persevered, because I eventually got up to Riverbank and was able to do this solo lcm IM workout in an uncrowded pool—I either had the VF lane to myself or shared it with just one other swimmer the entire time. Here’s what I did:

    1000 lcm warmup (400s, 200k, 200p, 200 d/s)

    4 x 150 k/s/k, reverse IM order [my legs were still very sore this morning from diving practice—this helped loosen them up a bit]

    4x thru, with ST = IM order by rounds
    3 x 50 ST @ 1:10, desc. to goal 200 IM pace
    50 easy FR @ 1:00
    200 IM @ 3:45, faster each round [3:38, :32, :28, :24]

    300 warmdown + play

    My breaststroke today felt nice and smooth, but was in fact slow—I only got my fastest 50 down to :56, when I was aiming for a :49-:50. It makes me glad I signed up for a breaststroke clinic in a couple of weeks—today it was definitely the weakest link in my IM.
