    Got a quick 1000 in after my team did their swim camp.

    300 easy (alt swim/kick/swim)

    200 cd
    2000 total

    That's the first 200 fly that I've done in almost 2 years. I was hoping to be under 2:30. My stroke count per 25 was between 6 & 8 strokes. If I can take 2 more dolphin kicks off each wall, I should be able to keep my stroke count lower for the 2nd 100.

  4. Summer 2012

    by , July 3rd, 2012 at 10:22 PM (Time-Crunched Swimmer)
    Week of 7/1
    7/3

    Quick weights workout...bench, squats, tri extension (balance on one leg), med ball wood chop, arm curls, and up/downs

    Want to get back to these quick weight workouts on off-days from the pool. My times are faster in meets when i do these. I am planning on doing the Dearborn Masters meet on 7/22. Not having access to a LC pool will be challenging but I'm looking forward to swimming the 200 fly and breast during that meet.

    7/4

    First workout at Downriver YMCA in several years...felt good to get back there.

    3 times through...
    200 swim/100 Kick (#1 Free, #2 Back, #3 Breast)

    8x25 drill/swim fly
    150 fly straight (building toward 200 fly)
    50 easy

    8x50 drill/swim RIMO 1:00
    100 k
    200 cd
    2000 yards

    The goal for these straight fly swims is to maintain my stroke rate while holding the same time. The last 50 of that 150 straight I added one stroke per length. Need to work my walls more and do a deeper chest press to maximize my distance per stroke. Ran into one of my old teammates from the DRY team...he mentioned that there is a group that still works out on Sunday mornings. Looking forward to joining them again.

    7/6

    400 wu (300 sw, 100 k)
    4x100 d/s RIMO 2:00
    100 k
    6x50 1:00 (odd free, even back)
    8x25 fly max 6 strokes per 25
    100 k
    150 cd

    1650 total

    Had to stop a little early. Went down to one lap lane. Too crowded! Having a hard time keeping my heart rate down. It's been so hot this week. That could be part of the issue.
