    Our team practice was cancelled on Thursday night for the 4th, so I contented myself with a 60 minute spin. I was pretty tuckered out from the Fortunately, I do not have to worry about packing the kitchen. That would do me in.

  5. 07.05.13 - Friday workout

    by , July 5th, 2013 at 02:20 PM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave and Dave. Pool temp down to 80! I think this has a lot to do with exceptionally cool weather we are having. While the west is baking, little has been said about the cool and (as of yesterday) very wet summer the southeast is having. Not that things can't change in a few days and we have had some very hot Septembers. Anyways, we had a very wet 4th of July. A neighborhood rain gauge registered almost 7 inches. We normally get about 2 inches in the entire month of July. I don't think they turn on the heater during the summer so all this cool weather has kept pool temps down.

    SCY

    4 x 50 Fly/bk/br - 1:00, Start/Finish @ mid pool. Focus on IM turns.

    3 Rounds of:
    * 200 IM Drill - 3:30

    by , July 5th, 2013 at 09:23 AM (After a long rest)
    We went to the local fireworks display and I was anticipating a very late night but to my pleasant surprise we did not hit much traffic and I was home in bed at 10.30pm. I had a great nights sleep and woke up 2 minutes before my alarm was due to go off. I felt good this morning.

  12. Wednesday, July 3, 2013 6:30-8:15pm

    by , July 4th, 2013 at 12:27 AM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Casual day - Assistant Coach Anne was in charge, as John is taking a day off prior to his road trip to a large prelim/finals meet in Montana this weekend. Teams from the 4 LSC's in the area are all converging for a LC Meter competition.

    Warmup:

    800 Free
    (800/800)

    Anne was making this up as we went...I could tell as she was talking to herself trying to think of sets, intervals, etc.

    8 x 100 going 50 Front Scull/50 Free Fast @ 2:00
    did these with about :15/:20 rest
    (800/1600)

    12 x 50 w/ long fins @ LIFO
    going 8 SDKs then surface for 2 Fly strokes, submerge 8 SDKs, up for 2 Fly strokes, etc.
    (600/2200)

    4 Rounds of 4 x 50s, followed by 100 "EZ"
    Each round of 50s is one stroke, must do all 4 strokes, but not important the order.
    Intervals were given for the strokes, which were fast:
    We did:
    4 x 50 Free @ :45
    1 x 100 Free @ 2:30
    4 x 50 Back @ :55
    1 x 100 Free @ 2:30
    4 x 50 Fly @ :50 (this got fun)
    1 x 100 Free @ 2:30
    4 x 50 Breast @ 1:00
    1 x 100 Free @ 2:30
    (1200/3400)

    1 x 400 IM Cruise - I ended up descending the 2nd half of the swim, passing Henry in the breast, and rocketing home in the free - went 6:00 - The fly was painful, and the backstroke was a cooldown from that pain.
    3 x 100 Free @ LIFO (approx. 1:40) Desc. 1-3
    went 1:20/1:16/1:12
    (700/4100)

    200 EZ

    ----------------------------
    4300 LC Meters


    Pretty easy practice overall. And a good mix of different stuff. It's good to switch coaches now and then, instead of the same ol' stuff all the time. Now we get the 4th of July off from the pool, and I get it off from work as well!! We usually work with the cherries going, but this year, my plant and day shift is off.

    Swam w/ Dave and Dave. Did another workout that was left on the whiteboard. Blakely disavowed any connection to this workout. It is probably from the previous day's 13-14 year old workout. We modified intervals where needed and added a little on at the end.

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

    I was busy all day yesterday and didn't hop on my bike for a quick spin until almost 9:30. Made up for it today. Was very happy that the water temp at SpringHill was back to 83-84 instead of 85-86. Maybe a non-noodler complained for a change! Tomorrow is busy again. Lil Fort has a 8K race and Teen Fort has the 4th of July relays. This meet is an annual meet between the six summer league teams in my town. They do all relays -- free, all 4 strokes, medley and mixed relays. Much fun, Lil Fort is a tad ticked that she is missing it. She is, of course, not very happy about moving and is trying to cram as much fun as she can in this summer. Now, I am off to dinner with friends!

    Comments
    Taking it gradual with the Shooter Monofin to build up ankles and minimize foot cramps with aerobic style sets mixed with smooth underwater SDK 25s. Made strap adjustments on the Bolster paddles in Set 2 to keep them from sliding down and better overall control. These are great paddles as they really facilitate the EVF setup to start the pull. Effort and patience are still required by the swimmer, as the paddles will not magically make it all happen, rather provide the water feel to do it.

    Set 3 is an example of my current training trend to do most of FR endurance and aerobic as moderate skill swimming with RA/LA/CU drills and/or 3/4 CU swimming, and then a small amount of efficient high quality speed swimming. I was pleased with the push-off 50s FR results of 32-30. I would rather swim fast as strong and long strokes for a LCM 50 of :30 versus doing a rapid turnover 29 (if I could even do that). When I start out fast tempo, I always slow down during the last 10 meters. When I start out strong with long 3/4 CU strokes and streamlined power kick then shift to more propeller style the last 10 meters, I get faster, more consistent results. Now I need to see if I can do that in swim meets.

    I am reasonably confident that I can do a LCM 100 Fly as 50 smooth and then 50 fast. Other than doing a DPS slow fly, I am not sure I can even finish a straight 200 LCM fly. The 50s today were hard work, not that the snorkel makes breathing very easy. Eventually as my Fly stroke becomes more stable in LCM, I will do more stronger 50s and 100s no snorkel with breathing every stroke with every other stroke the last 10 meters.

    Recently I obtained the large size Agility paddles to use with freestyle, particularly on the quality speed sets. Today I did Set 5 with them along with the fins and snorkel to do FR drills with a fast 50 at the end of each 300. Swimming fast with the L-Agility paddles and fins is a great way to feel the sense of hydroplaning of top of the water. I look forward to receiving my new Water Gear stiffer and slightly longer fins!

    Yesterday I took my daughter to the movie theatre to watch the matinee 3D version of "Man of Steel" (OK-not great) and she left her iPod in there! My wife and I figured out what happen around 9pm, and of course she is always faster than I am as she quickly looked up and called the theatre phone number (while I am still getting the google results), so today the iPod is back safe in my daughter's little hands. My son is on the final leg of his grand summer tour with relatives and friends that included a one week Carnival Caribbean cruise, the Keys, Miami, Orlando-Universal, and then a few weeks in Madison-AL. Meanwhile I was able to replace and install the fan-heatsink in his gaming laptop.

    Happy 4th to all!! Safe driving and travel please!

  16. Week 40 - Wednesday

    by , July 3rd, 2013 at 01:51 PM (After a long rest)
    I woke up today feeling pretty bad. There is a stomach bug going around at work and I think I have it. I have not been sick but my stomach has been doing the loop-de-loop. I made it through practice without loosing the contents of my stomach but I felt both tired and queassie the whole practice. Hopefully its just a 24 hr bug and i will be back to normal tomorrow. Tonight I was suppossed to go to the Texas Rangers game but I am not sure if I will make it.

    Warmup
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on 50
    12x50 with fins, 25 under water, 25 overkick on 1 min

    Main set
    6x250 on 3.25 swum as 200 free followed by 50 back.
    6x50 stroke on 1 minute, swum as drills(I did mainly back catchup)
    6x50 on 35 - suppossed to be as many as possible until I failed but I only did 4 and then did 2 easy

    Warm down
    200 easy

    Total 3500 meters

    The 250s hurt, but I held 1.10-1.15 pace per 100 and was getting about 20 seconds rest on the 250s. The rest of practice was sort of uuggghhh.

  18. Last long course day for the week

    by , July 3rd, 2013 at 07:26 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    Since I will be in Myrtle Beach my accessability to LCM is nill. Tomorrow is a swim in the subdivision pool at my parents house since nothing else is available. I think it is about 20 yards but I will do a stroke count to figure it out.

    Had a decent workout but not terribly strong. Arms hurt still but only 2.5 weeks till taper starts. I have to rethink a distance taper this time. It has been a while.

    500 free
    500 free kick w/zoomers

    400 free w/paddles & bouy long and loose
    300 free w/paddles & bouy pick it up some
    200 free w/paddles & bouy a bit faster here but still not pushing at 3:16
    100 free w/paddles & bouy 1:31

    300 free kick w/zoomers
    200 breast kick
    10x50@1:10 free w/snorkle relaxed

    Total 3000 meters over the 300 mile mark for the year today!

  19. Tuesday, July 2, 2013 6:30-8:00pm

    by , July 2nd, 2013 at 11:55 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Hot hot hot day today. While it is common for us to reach over 100 degrees, it usually happens much later into the summer - beginning of August or so...not the first of July. And today wasn't just a little over, it was way over - at 106!! Just last week we had highs of 70 and rain rain rain. Not even a transition period at all to get ready for it. Just over the weekend it went straight to the high 90s, and then 100s, and now
    The water was hot too. It seemed to change almost overnight too!

    Warmup:

    600 Free
    (600/600)

    Kick Set:
    3 rounds of:
    • 1 x 200 SDK w/ long fins @ 3:20
    • 2 x 100 SDK w/ long fins @ 1:35
    • 2 x 50 SDK w/ long fins @ :45

    I made them all, but took my fins off for the final round of 50s at the end. Blisters were killing me.
    (1500/2100)

    Lane Rotation Day:
    started with the bucket pulling - paddles, buoy, and bucket
    12 x 50 @ 2:00
    Of course I got one of the "new" buckets, that only had six 3/8" holes drilled in the bottom!! Still, I rocked it!! Old guy still has muscle power over the kids.
    (600/2700)

    next lane:
    16 x 50 @ 1:30 Odds Drill, Evens Sprint, 4 of each stroke
    I did the 4 Fly, and 4 Back, then got out...It was 8:00, so I did get 90 minutes in...
    (400/3100)

    3100 LC Meters
  20. Workout 07/02/13: morning and evening

    by , July 2nd, 2013 at 09:16 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    I slept in a bit and made my way over to Hoosick Falls to the outdoor pool. I was able to get 1300yds in 25 minutes of relatively easy swimming as the rain stopped falling. I hopped in near the wall, but the pool (which has a vinyl-type liner over concrete) had a huge bubble, like three feet wide. I was able to move over after about ten minutes, so it was all good. No lanes, ropes, or clocks, just nice swimming.

    After a nice hot, humid day around the house, I went to a leadership meeting with the new church before heading to Masters practice. Actually caught the tail end of the kids summer league swim meet and timed a bit, then got in with 25 minutes left of our practice to do:

    - 100 Fr/100 Bk/200 IM drill

    Repeat x 2:
    -50 EZ
    - 100 Fast
    - 50 EZ
    - 150 Fast
    - 200 EZ

    200 loosen and out
    (Master/Rec/1700 yds/25 min)
    -------------------------------

    The fast swims were good, and the easy stuff was nice. Still trying to catch up on sleep. Only need to work tomorrow, then off Thursday for the holiday so that should be easy to accomplish.
