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

    Just hopped in for an hour to do an easy workout before it was back to errands and packing. I am looking at a long to do list today, but hope to make it to the gym later.

    I may need to be in town the weekend of August 3-4. I am vaguely contemplating popping in for this meet: https://www.clubassistant.com/club/m...1605&smid=4841. I really don't plan on swimming much in July, so it would be 100% just for fun. I would swim off events.

  3. Monday, July 1, 2013 AM & PM (yep...a DOUBLE, my first)

    by , July 2nd, 2013 at 01:59 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    That's right, I threw in a double today, which I believe is my first daily double swim workout with Velocity Swimming since I joined them last September. Normally I don't get to swim in the mornings with my summer work schedule, but the cherry season just isn't what it normally is. This morning I didn't have to start till 9:00am, so I was able to swim for an hour and a half...then had time to return for more punishment in the evening. My coach John didn't expect to see me there tonight at all!!

    A.M. Workout/Warmup
    400 Free
    400 Kick w/ long fins
    400 Free Pull
    (1200/1200)

    5 x 200 IM @ 4:00 (still warmupish)
    (1000/2200)

    w/ Paddles and Long fins:
    8 x 350 broken into:
    • 200 IM cruise @ 3:30
    • 100 Stroke Fast @ 2:00
    • 50 Stroke Fast @ 1:30

    The 100s stroke went Fly, Back, Breast, Free
    The 50s stroke were reverse, going Free, Breast, Back, Fly
    (1400/3600)

    I only did 4 of the 350s before I had to get out. I wasn't using any paddles at all with the IM/Fly stuff involved, and I just suck at swimming with fins on. I bet the YMCA lap swimmers could even swim faster than me with their fins on.

    ------------------------------
    3600 LCMeters

    ....then about 8 hours of work done, and...
    well over 100 degrees as well (about 103)

    P.M. Workout/Warmup:
    1000 Choice (all Free for me)
    (1000/1000)

    8 x 150 Kick w/ long fins @ 2:20
    I did 2 x 150s, 2 x 100s, 2 x 150s, 2 x 100s
    (1000/2000)

    **team water break**

    6 x 200 Choice (did Free) @ 4:00 (Desc. 1-3, 4-6)
    came down to a 2:28 on the final 200
    (1200/3200)

    **team water break**

    16 x 50 Odds V-sit scull @ 1:45, Evens Front Scull @ 1:30
    not fun at all!!!
    (800/4000)

    Sprinting with a partner - we matched up with someone in our lane who was approximately our same speed - I got Henry, who is now faster than me, but I once was able to cream him. Ahhh...the youth...gotta love them.

    6 x 50 All Out @ 1:30
    4 of them Free, 1 Fly, then 1 Free
    I was around Henry's shoulder or so on each on at the finish, so I was able to hang with him at least.
    (300/4300)

    200 EZ

    -------------------------
    4500 LCMeters
    +
    3600 from the a.m.

    Comments
    There were moments in the workout where I felt "strong in the water" and some other moments where I was riding with the flow of the water under my hands when swimming strong long Freestyle doing fast CU or quality 50s.

    Coming out of the locker/shower room later I realized I finished my workout just in time. It was raining, pouring down so hard I could barely even see the pool. Everyone was huddling in the semi-enclosed lobby area trying to stay dry as the wind was blowing the rain everywhere. Rather than wait, I became drenched during the five minute walk/run to my car, but it continued to rain hard off and on for the next 2-3 hours, so getting out of there ASAP was the right choice.

    I am still considering entering the indoor LCM meet in Clearwater early August, but my main goal is to train consistently as possible, particularly during the remaining five weeks until school starts again. If I can hold on my current endurance level, and also develop some efficient speed during July and August, I would like to swim in several SCM meets leading up to the Rowdy Gaines SCM in Orlando later in the fall.

  11. Week 39 - Saturday

    by , June 29th, 2013 at 10:36 PM (After a long rest)
    Internet issues at my house delayed me posting this workout. Saturday mornings workout was one of the best practices I have had since I got back in the pool. The warmup was a little different than usual and my heart rate was up after about 4 of the opening 100s. I felt strong throughout the workout.


    8x100 on 1.20 swum as 75 free, 25 back
    12x50 swum with snorkel, 12.5 streamline kick, 12.5 swim, 12.5 streamline kick, 12.5 swim on 50
    100 easy
    8x100 on 2mins best average instructed to hold under 1min
    100 easy
    5x100 kick with fins on 1.30
    100 easy
    8x50 shark fin free drill on 1min


    Total 3400 yards


    The warmup set of 100s I held about 1.10s. I felt strong on the kick set holding 40s. The main set of fast 100s was great. Initially I was instructed to do 6 x100 but coach changed this after 5(this felt like a kick in the you know what's) to 8. I held 56s until I was told about the extra 2x100s. I went 57 on number 6 and then went back to 56s on the last two. Needless to say 7 out of 8 100s holding 56s was very pleasing to say the least. My kick in particular feels strong at the moment and I seem to finally be able to not just kick in a kick set but i am now able to bring the kick into my free swimming and feel somewhat comfortable with a 6 beat kick.

    by , June 29th, 2013 at 04:49 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Wow, what a difference it makes when you don't have to work 11+ hours prior to a swim workout! Yeah, I was still tired from the overall week, but having a day off from being on my feet has been great! I can only hope the work hotline says we're off tomorrow, but probably not.

    5500 LCMeters


    Some of the kids must've heard about a rumor that I'm going to leave them team next month, 'cause a few of them were asking me about it. Word spreads fast around here I guess. They want me to stay, but I have my reasons. It's been good training with them, and seeing their development. Many are now starting to approach my training speeds, and a couple have now passed me up. Ahhhh...youth. I told them I'm not quitting swimming, I'm just leaving from the team environment to be a little more relaxed in what I do. I had a huge void in my life for about 8 years, and swimming filled that with happiness. I can't let that go again, but I can pick and choose when I want to step it up again.

  15. Week 39 - Friday

    by , June 28th, 2013 at 11:31 PM (After a long rest)
    My daughter had an inter squad meet last night and I had to rush home to make the meet. After the meet I went to bed fully clothed while watching tv and ended up sleeping without setting my alarm. As a result I overslept this morning and despite my best effort I was late to the pool. Despite a slightly shorter warmup I had a good practice and really enjoyed some fast 100s with fins at the end of practice.

    400 free with snorkel
    4x50 catchup drill on 45
    6x100 free descend 1-3 and 4-6 with 10 seconds rest
    100 easy
    4x200 kick with fins on 2.30
    5x(2x50 on 30, 50 easy on 1min)
    200 easy breathing every 5
    2x100 with fins AFAP from blocks
    300 easy

    Total 3550 yards

    I had a hard time getting going on the 6x100s, but went, 1.09, 1.07,1.05,1.09,1.06,1.03. The 200s kick I held 2.10s which I was very pleased with. The set of pace 50s was tough, but I hit my rhythm and held 28s throughout. The 2x100s with fins were really good fun and I went 47 on the first. On the second two of my team mates decided to do a relay to pace me and I went 45(and beat the relay; not that I am competitive!). I would have liked to have spent more time in the pool this morning but had a conference call with our partner in Korea and had to rush home to change. Rush and lack of sleep seem to be the two themes for the week.

  18. 06.28.13 - Friday workout

    by , June 28th, 2013 at 11:03 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave and Dave. My kids had a meet in Boaz, AL last night that ended at 9:30. It is about a 75 minute drive from my house so, we got back in at 11:00. I was kind of dragging at practice. It was worth it though. My daughter finally got "called up" from the development team and dropped 3 seconds off her 50 free time in a fairly slow pool. My oldest son dropped 2 seconds off his 50 free time and then shocked everyone by dropping another second off his 200 free relay split. That one second drop turned out to be significant since they won by .6 seconds. He's got some great teammates. Starting swimming competitively at age 15 when everyone has been swimming for a long time has to be intimidating. Instead of negative talk about how much faster they could be if someone else had showed up, they all told my son he could go fast enough for the team to win the race. It was fun to watch and worth being a little drowsy this morning.

    by , June 28th, 2013 at 10:55 AM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/LCM @ Mason:

    Warm up:

    2 x 300 (100 S/K/S)
    100 IM drill
    1 x 300 (S/K/S)

    Main Sets:

    8 x vertical kick
    :20 hands at shoulders, :10 fast in streamline, squat jump off bottom

    6 x 200 w/fins @ 4:00
    1-3 = 50 fly/back/breast + 100 free + 50 stroke choice
    4-6 = 50 stroke choice + 100 free + 50 dolphin kick on back
    -- I did these all!
    -- instead of 100 free, I did 50 free + 50 back kick

    100 EZ

    1 x 200 IM for time off blocks
    -- NOOOOOO!!!
    -- 50 back for time from the blocks, 31
    - 31 after a long aerobic set?! Did I not just swim a 32.4 at my meet? Heehee, I took 30 dolphin kicks instead of 15. Though this time certainly suggests that the summer cold cost me in Richmond.
    100 EZ

    9 x 50 w/fin & paddles @ :50
    -- went 35-36s
    150 EZ

    -- I think I forgot something ... brain clutter


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

    It was a very rare evening where Fort Son was able to pick Lil Fort up at track practice and deposit her at Thursday night swim team dinner. So I hopped in the car to go to my team practice with Teen Fort. I certainly hadn't planned on swimming on my own this week, but swimming with my team sounded fun. I figured I'd be pretty tired today after a real LCM aerobic practice, and I am. But no rest for the weary, I have mega prep for Teen Fort's grad party tomorrow!

    Comments:
    There are generally four to five lap swim lanes available at the FMAC during the school summer break, which are surrounded by a churning frenzy of pool activity from bus loads of young exuberant campers. The months of June and July are the most hectic to swim at either FMAC or FGCU because of limited lap swimming pool access, and almost daily afternoon thunderstorms. My daughter attends morning writing and music workshops near FMAC so I swam there at those times. The recent two summers I was out of the water all of July and part of August, so I hope to minimize that this time.
