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. Quick afternoon workout

    I enjoyed another nice solo swim at the Y today. I swam in the early afternoon and had a lane to myself for all be the first 800 or so of the following:

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

    Freestyle set
    100 @ 1:40, 50 @ :50
    100 @ 1:40, 50 @ :45
    100 @ 1:40, 50 @ :40
    100 @ 1:40, 50 @ :35
    100 @ 1:35, 50 @ :40
    100 @ 1:30, 50 @ :45
    100 @ 1:25, 50 @ :50
    100 @ 1:20, 50 @ :55
    100 @ 1:15, 50 @ 1:00
    100 @ 1:10, 50 @ 1:05 [missed on this 100ódid a 1:10+]

    700 easy warmdown + play

    I enjoyed this setóit started out very gently, and by the time it got hard there was too much to do figuring out the sendoffs to fret about anything else. But it seemed a little shortóI might double the 50s next time I do it, or palindrome it if Iím feeling bold.

    Iím feeling a little unsettled with my swimming these daysóI vacillate between feeling happy to just be going to the pool and swimming for the fun of it and feeling dissatisfied because I donít have something concrete to train for. In the short term, I need to decide whether I want to swim the Asphalt Green meet on December 9th. And in the long term, I need to start thinking about what things I want to do next spring and summer, and what I need to make them happen. Lots of possibilities out there--the difficulty will be choosing among them!
