  2. Good Pace Friday

    by , May 17th, 2013 at 07:37 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I must say I am getting faster and better with my pacing. Todays times were much closer to what I did back in 2008 than here recently. Tomorrow will be stroke work over a longer period of time.

    The shoulders have calmed down, the left elbow is still a problem but if I remain diligent with the trigger point therapy, it should resolve as well.

    500 free
    500 free kick w/zoomers

    3 times thru
    4x100@1:45 free w/paddles & bouy
    200@5:00 back w/paddles & bouy
    Round 1 went 1:35, 1:33, 1:32, 1:30, 3:01
    Round 2 went 1:34, 1:32, 1:30, 1:28, 3:06
    Round 3 went 1:30, 1:31, 1:30, 1:28, 3:16

    500 free EZ

  3. Thursday, May 16, 2013 7:00-9:00pm

    by , May 17th, 2013 at 01:17 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    I talked with coach John about when we may be getting into the outdoor pool. He told me that it is full of water now, and they're going to begin heating it on Monday, so in about 3-4 days after that it should be "swimable". So he says...he's not the one getting into the frigid water!! But it looks like my LCM adventures may begin as early as a week from now. That will give us just about a week to work on our swimmer's tans prior to the home LCM meet the first weekend of June.

    Warmup:

    600 (25 Free/25 V-Sit Scull)
    (600/600)

    16 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:10 (held :44-:47s)
    (800/1400)

    16 x 50 IM Order 4x thru @ 1:00
    I did these fast, roughly :30 Fly, :36 Back, :37 Breast, :28 Free
    It's pretty sad that my breast is almost the same speed as my back in practice times.
    (800/2200)

    Main Set: All w/ paddles and long fins

    8 Rounds:
    • (for reference my 200 Free time is 1:54, so 100s :57, 50s :28.5 times to shoot for)
    • 100 Free @ 1:30 at 200 Pace
    • 50 Free @ :45 EZ Peezy
    • 50 Free @ 1:00 at 200 Pace
    • 25 Free @ :45 faster than 200 Pace
    • 25 Free @ :45 AFAP Blasto
    • I did fine for 4 Rounds, holding at or faster than my "pace times", then I had to back off a bit to around 1:00/100 pace. I guess the IM 50s early did me in a little more than I thought.



    200 EZ
    (2200/4400)

    10 x 50
    Odds Front Scull @ 1:15
    Evens Breast Fast @ 1:05 (held ~:38-:39s)
    (500/4900)

    4 x 25 Free AFAP @ 1:00
    (100/5000)

    300 Cooldown

    5300 Yards
  4. Workout 05/16/13: evening

    by , May 16th, 2013 at 09:46 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Had a nice day and lunch with my wife. We got home and a large limb of the maple tree that straddles the neighbor and our own driveway fell off into our driveway. Funny how it has always been "their" tree, except now when some more limbs clearly need to be taken down. Didn't hit the house, but some of you might remember this as being the tree that was struck by lightning a couple of summers ago, the "blast" from which tore through my house and send my wife on the porch sailing through space. Oh well, I cut it up and stacked it with the other campfire wood we have out back for smores night.

    Borrowed another swim from kiefer.com as they have been tweeting at me lately and suggested it. I felt some more motivation tonight for:
    Warm Up:
    200 easy swim free
    300 IM - 25 kick, 25 drill, 25 swim
    200 - alternating 25 scull, 25 swim choice
    4 x 25 build, choice - at least 2 have to be non-free
    (800 yards)

    Main set:
    4 x 75 pull choice with paddles and buoy, first length easy, middle length build, last length of each hard - :15 rest
    (300 yards, 1100 cumulative yards)

    6 x 200 completed as a repeating pattern of 1 build swim choice, 1 hard swim choice, 1 moderate kick with board and fins - take :20 rest after each. Push the swim, recover on the kick.
    (1200 yards, 2300 cumulative yards)

    4 x 25 hard kick - board, no fins - :10 rest
    4 x 25 hard pull - buoy, no paddles - :10 rest
    4 x 25 hard swim - all out, mix up the strokes - :10 rest
    (300 yards, 2600 cumulative yards)

    200 easy and out
    (Solo/Rec/2800 yds/60 min)
    ----------------------------

    Nice workout, especially since I didn't have to think very hard to come up with it. Since I write a lot of workouts, it is nice to just grab one and swim it every now and again.

    I felt a little sluggish in the water. Taking a note from sickfish's blog (where has he been, anyways?), I ate pizza and some cheezey breadsticks around 5ish, then played hoops with my son for 20 minutes around 6:30. First time that he has legitimately beaten me in bball. Anyways, every turn of those 200's reminded me of garlic and dough, but I kept pushing on. GregJS was there tonight (this is family swim/lap time, and he has mentioned it is dead - only two others in the whole pool tonight besides us), and when I mentioned that I could feel my belly jiggling off each way he told me to it was like an "internal drag suit." I guess it'll help with OW training in some way (just getting through).

    I'll be dry through the weekend due to work, and plan to help out with the marathon in our community Sunday before work parking cars. Robert, the director, is also a swimmer on our team and helped this year with timing, and we both helped the cyclocross club with their event in the fall. I try to support the other adult fitness ventures in the area.

  8. 05.16.13 - Thursday workout

    by , May 16th, 2013 at 11:04 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Roger and Andrey. Andrey led my lane until he got tired. It was kind of a mess because the workout switched up between each of our strengths and we were destined to get tangled up a bit. Near the end, another lane opened up which made things easier. I ended up racing Roger on a 300 backstroke. I got paddles and and buoy, he didn't. Even with my paddle advantage, it isn't a race I'm going to win but I kept up with him longer than I would have expected. I was even ahead at 200 yards.

  9. Workout 05/16/13: morning

    by , May 16th, 2013 at 09:44 AM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Very little motivation for a swim this morning, but went after dropping my son off at school for a swim that I made even shorter by getting out early.

    200 FR/200 BK/200 IM drill

    10 x 100
    - odds = kick on 1:50
    - evens = swim on 1:30 (Fr/IM/Fr/Bk/Fr)

    1 x Noah's Ark swim
    50 EZ and out
    (Solo/Rec/2150 yds/40 min)
    ---------------------

    Yesterday I was able to get the grass mowed and a cat nap in before getting my son from school. Had a low-key afternoon before going to Bible Study, then met with a friend to help him set up his tablet. The funny part was that it took him 20 minutes to figure out an email address for Google in order to use the blasted thing! Planning to have an easy day (Lena wants to go over to Albany to do some shopping), then swim again tonight.

    Warmup:

    800 MI (Rev. IM) 50 Drill/50 Swim
    (800/800)

    Kick Set w/ long fins:
    6 Rounds:
    • 150 SDK moderate @ 2:00 (went 1:45-1:50)
    • 75 SDK Build @ 1:20 (went ~:55s)
    • 25 SDK FAST @ :40 (went ~:15s)

    (1500/2300)

    10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:40 (went 1:05s) worked on breathing both sides, though at a random.
    (1000/3300)

    Main Set:
    12 x 100 Choice Stroke @ 2:45 - EN3 work

    • must do same stroke for a group of 4 in a row.
    • Free (best time :52 - EN3 time is 1:01) Fly (best time :56 - EN3 time is 1:07.5)

    First 4 - Did Free, went 1:00/1:01/1:01/1:00
    Second 4 - Did Fly, went 3rd in lane behind two freestylers, with two breaststrokers behind me - went 1:07/1:06/1:08/1:07
    Final 4 - Did Free, went 1:02/1:01/1:01/1:00

    200 EZ
    (1400/4700)

    40 x 25 @ :30
    10 of each stroke IM Order
    Felt great on the Flys. Backs felt like a 400 IM "cooldown from the Fly". Breasts felt strong, Frees were great, driving with the legs
    These don't seem hard at first, but once you get going, it's "fun". I'm just glad I was leading the lane rather than being in the middle to the end of it. Those kids looked to be bouncing all over the place.
    (1000/5700)

    4 x 50 breast drills
    -- kick w/buoy, carla drill, kick on back, 1 pull + 2 kick
    -- kicking w/a buoy is worthless -- my heels are constantly breaking the surface
    5 attempted crossover turns
    -- very awkward
    -- i think i managed a couple correctly
    -- but i worry that i won't get much distance off the walls unless i'm doing them super fast
    50 EZ

    3 = fly, 27

    Total: 3000 m


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Whoa, I was really tired after yesterday's first LCM workout. I tried to get a super night's sleep, but was foiled first by Teen Fort waking me up, then Lil Fort waking me up, and then the phone continuously ringing. Hopefully, I can snooze well tonight. I'm still tired from Nats and making up for sleep deprivation there. Still, I feel like I got in a very solid workout today. I worked on a narrower breast pull and my turnover did feel faster.

    I was looking at the LCM Zones lineup. I have no idea how big the meet will be; usually CZ isn't very long. The Saturday lineup begins with 100 back, 200 breast, 50 free ... If I swim 100 back, will I have time to recover for the 50s? Can't decide. I may sign up for 100 and see what the timeline is like.

    Nice stretch-out swim today in a crowded lane. Worked on technique with the pulls and tried to push the kicks. I was going to keep increasing the swim distance but was running out of time. It has been below freezing during the past few mornings here in Vermont, and the potential for the third straight season of sub-par apple crops is likely. I covered half of our grapevines and we took some potted plants inside. The past five or so years we have seen beautiful weather in early May, but then a cold snap will move in and kill off all the buds. They always say that it is best to be patient and plant the garden around Memorial Day to avoid the frost around these parts; we have always listened.

I can't wait. we have an awesome facility and we need to host some more meets. Now all I have to do is motivate my own team to sign up.

    substitute coach tonight - Anne, who is the White Group coach (next level below ours) gave us a minor butt kicking tonight.

    Warmup:
    1000 Free
    (1000/1000)

    7 Rounds of (X + Y + Z)
    • X = 25, 50, 75, or 100 @ 1:15 Sprint
    • Y = 50 (25 EZ/25 Fast) @ 2:15
    • Z = 100, 150, or 200 @ 3:15 Sprint

    Depending on if your are a sprinter/distance person/or working strokes, you choose the distance you can make and/or put the best effort into. If you're doing shorter distances just stay out of the way of the others in the lane.

    I did 4 Rounds of Free

    • 100 @ 1:15 (held 1:00-1:01s)
    • 50 @ 2:15
    • 200 @ 3:15 (held 2:06-2:08s)

    Then 3 Rounds of Fly

    • 25 @ 1:15 Sprint (did a 50 @ 3rd round)
    • 50 @ 2:15 EZ/Fast
    • 100 @ 3:15 (went 1:06/1:04/1:05) <-- the end of the third round was like "whoa!" and my arms were glad it was over!

    Fun little set, I enjoyed it.
    (1400 Free + 550 Fly/2950)

    6 x 100 Flutter Kick w/ fins @ 1:25 (25 Back/25 Side/25 Side/25 Back)
    (600/3550)

    16 x 50 Pull/Scull stuff w/ no paddles @ LIFO (last in-first out)

    • 4 x 50 (25 Front Scull/25 Free)
    • 4 x 50 DPS Free
    • 4 x 50 Build Free
    • 4 x 50 Scull

    I suck at pulling without paddles. 15+ SPL, and the kids are outswimming me. With paddles, I can go, but with buoy only...I'm almost a sitting duck out there! I actually am a kick-based swimmer, weird for a distance guy.
    (800/4350)

    20 x 25 Dolphin Kick w/ fins & board
    Odds Underwater Kick w/ board
    Evens Kick w/ board on surface
    (500/4850)

    Various 2 person relays, one person is the arms, one is the legs...though the one with the legs was only drag floating with a buoy. Did breaststroke, back, and free. I was best at breaststroke like this.
    (250/5100)

    100 EZ

    Since Coach Cheryl (who I shared a lane with) said the pool would be LCM right after nationals, I wasted no time in going! It felt long, but not horrifically long. Still did a mostly recovery workout with nothing fast. Hopefully, I will be ready tomorrow for at least some 100 pace work.

    Tips for improving breast collected from nats thread. Maybe I can work on these on a recovery/technique day.

    1. evil kick on back, knees not breaking surface
    2. eggbeater kick
    3. evil kick w/buoy right above knees
    4. breast pull w/flutter kick for turnover
    5. breast alternate fly pull and evil pull (sounds awkward)
    6. hip thrust -- no idea what this is about
    7. narrower pull

    Way way more importantly, Patrick insists I need to learn the back to breast crossover turn. I look at videos of these and get dizzy and confused. Does someone have a 5 step to do list for this turn? This is definitely something I can see trying to learn.

    Swam w/ ... and Dave.

    SCY

    600 Warm up

    10 x 100 - 1:30 Odds IM, evens free

    16 x 25 - :30 IM Order, half underwater
    1:00 Rest
    5 Rounds of:
    * 4 x 50 - 1:05 (Odd rounds 1/2 underwater, Even rounds kick)
    * 2 x 200 Pull - 2:20
    Making the 200s on 2:20 wasn't so bad but pushing off for 12 yards underwater right after was pretty tough. The original interval on the 50s was :50. Don't think I could have handled that.

    8 x 50 Kick - 1:00
    1:00 Rest
    100 Timed kick (IM - 1:33)

    200 Cool down

    Made it to the rec center for a post nationals recovery swim. I don't feel quite as horrible as I usually do after a multi day meet, though I am certainly tired. I'm going to jump right back into training though, with LCM Zones so close. I am heading to Mason shortly because they have switched to LCM. I have 4 weeks to train before doing a 2 week taper. I can't decide if I should go back to the gym or not ... I may not. I'm going to be really really busy the next month with Teen Fort graduating, Lil Fort's going away party, spring racing season, soccer tournaments, etc. Last night was Lil Fort's last USAS practice. Kinda sad, but she can't keep doing 3 sports and swimming is the one to go with the move. She's a good little fly/free swimmer, but she is a vastly better runner and wants to focus more on that.
