    Much less crowded tonight...good for swimming, but "bad" 'cause we can do longer distance reps of stuff too!

    Warmup:

    600 (25 Front Scull, 25 Breast, 25 Back, 25 Corkscrew)
    (600/600)

    Kick Set:
    16 x 50 Kick w/ short fins (did SDK on back)
    • 4 @ :55
    • 4 @ :50
    • 4 @ :45
    • 4 @ :40
    • Overall an easy set, only had to "try" on the :40s
    (800/1400)

    Main Set:
    12 x 200 @ 5:00 (this means we go fast - kinda )
    I did my best
    • Round 1 (4 x 200) IM - went 2:30/2:28/2:27/2:28
    • Round 2 (4 x 200) Stroke - did Back since I'm tired lately, and decided to rest the Fly - went 2:38/2:32/2:33/2:31 (pretty good considering I was 2:16 in the meet a while back)
    • Round 3 (4 x 200) Free - went 2:12/2:11/2:10/2:07 - felt sluggish, and just couldn't get going, still only :10 off my time from a few weeks ago
    200 EZ
    (2600/4000)

    3 x 200 Flutter Kick w/ board no fins @ "Group LIFO + 1:00" - nice interval!
    went 3:20ish
    (600/4600)

    4 x 25 Choice FAST @ :45 did Free/Fly/Free/Free

    200 EZ

    ------------------------
    4900 Yards


    That's it, I'm tired, and am officially calling off tomorrow night's practice! I need to rest my body a little more than these kids who will be "taking it easy" tomorrow for the meet this weekend. My idea of taking it easy will be watching tv, or maybe doing something productive around the house...nah, tv it is.

    50 EZ

    5 x 20 in & outs w/race pace turn @ 1:15

    2 x (25 AFAP free from a dive + 75 EZ)
    -- rolling on 59, 12 lows
    100 EZ

    I had been enjoying a couple days of pool heater malfunction so the water was 79-80. back to 83-84 today; the noodlers were happy.

    Had a deep tissue massage right after swimming. I thought I had booked for 90, but they only had me listed for 60. So I ended up being comped a free massage! Woohoo!

    NE Champs still hovering at 312 swimmers. The most popular event for women is 50 free, followed closely by 100 IM.

    Comments:
    • My workouts on Monday and Tuesday were about 5K each, but I just swam through them feeling really uncoordinated, tired, and strange. Today, in the warmup, I was more motivated to make a better effort to swim.
    • Set 1 - The goal was to start each round at 47 and hold or desc without collapsing the stroke.
    • Set 2 & 3, I was still pretty tired, but came back ok in the pull set.

    200 loosen and out
    (Solo/Rec/2700 yds/50 min)
    ---------------------------

    The last two days at work have been extremely busy - with the doctors off Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving, then the weekend, we were getting pounded by new orders as the offices tried to clear out their backlogs, and patients that were coming in wondering why their orders weren't ready yet. Add to that the store remodel and the chaos that breeds ...

    I was going back and forth about swimming for the next 10 days with the BU meet fast approaching (double today like normal, soft or hard transitstion into the taper, ). Made my mind up to start the taper today.

    I found the main speed set from Fort's HIT week #15, and was going to do it twice (once free, once back), but didn't really have the time so just did free. I was able to crank out a :42 on the 75 and :59 on the 100, so I was happy. I did not use fins, but did take plenty of time before AFAP efforts. The BK set felt good; I have decided just to swim more and think less, so we'll see how that goes.

    As for now, perhaps a nap. Or clean the garage up a bit. Nap's looking better and better

    This was a tough workout. More of a head game. Some simple realizations come to mind when doing this swim. the entire swim is one long gaggle of 200's. Haven't done this kind of distance in a long time. felt good. Think I will keep it up for the winter months.

    Tonight was a very crowded pool, and it doesn't look like things are going to get much better for most of the winter season. We've got a pretty large team, and just don't have the pool space/time to better split up the groups any. As we have it now, our Black group (older kids) have 3 lanes (sometimes 4 depending on the attendance of the White group) every evening, but now that the high school girls are now all back from their "vacation" after the h.s. season, it's getting nuts in practice! We swam tonight with 7 in my lane, 8 in lane 5, and 8 or 9 in lane 4. It was like a washing machine practice out there!!


    Warmup:

    600 (25 Breast, 25 Front Scull, 25 V-Sit Scull, 25 Free)
    (600/600)

    Kick Set

    10 x 100 Kick w/ short fins @ 1:25 (did SDK on back like always), tried not to drown

    20 x 25 w/ short fins @ 1:00 FAST
    • Odds SDK underwater no breathers
    • Evens -first 5 Fly, second 5 Free
    100 EZ
    (2100/2700)

    Main Set:

    10 x 100 Free @ 1:25 best average
    went 1:01-1:05, mainly 1:03/:04s
    100 EZ

    7 x 100 Free @ 1:20 best average
    went 1:02-1:06, mainly 1:05s
    100 EZ

    4 x 100 Free @ 1:15 best average
    went 1:02/1:04/1:03/1:01 these were actually easier on my body with the shorter rest interval, I just get in a zone and go with it.
    100 EZ

    (2400/5100)

    400 Kick w/ board

    600 Free stretch out

    --------------------
    6100 Yards - I'm tired now, but did make it to Taco Bell after practice for a little 4th meal action tonight.


    That main set kicked my butt, and I'm sure most of it was the fact that we were so crowded in the pool tonight. John had everyone leaving 3 seconds apart so that the lead person in each lane wouldn't be running in to the last person in the lanes on the 2nd 50s of the 100s. All the wave action probably added a few seconds to our times as well, though I still managed to do pretty good anyway.

    I went back and looked at the tapers I wrote for Greensboro and what I did before NE Champs last year. I did way too much race pace work yesterday! So I had to slack off today. But I'm not sure I slacked off enough. I will slack off more tomorrow. And my taper will be helped along by the fact that I'm heading to SC for youth XC Nationals on Friday am, so will be out of the water on Friday and Saturday.

    I see psych sheets for the SPMS meet are up: http://www.swimphone.com/mobile/meet....cfm?smid=4157

    NE Champs has finally passed the 300 swimmer mark.

    Tonight I was able to swim with a fellow masters swimmer who is semi-converted to age group swimmer. Jennifer's only on the team "part time", and paying a reduced rate, but can only swim 2-3 times a week for that as well...usually she swims in the mornings so I don't see her. She's 39, and hangs out at the back end of our lane, but keeps up just fine.
    Today was a very very crowded day. Our 3 lanes had 6, 7, and 9 people in them. I luckily was in the lane with 6, but it was still hell. We at least made use of the deep tank for a portion of the workout on our "circuit" set.


    Warmup:

    600 (25 Free/25 V-Sit Scull)

    9 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:10 Desc. 1-3

    10 x 75 Free Pull @ 1:15 (held :47-:48s)
    (1800/1800)

    Kick Set:

    10 x 100 Kick w/ short fins (did SDK on back) @ 1:25 - doing much better on these
    (1000/2800)

    Main Set: (circuits) 1:00 rest between stations to transfer

    My group started in the deep tank at station #1
    10 x sprint bursts the width of deep tank (12.5 yards) @ 1:00
    --pushoff, breakout and sprint (minimal streamlines)

    #2
    SAME AS #1 (there were 2 stations in the deep tank, we just got "lucky" to start at the beginning)
    10 x sprint bursts @ 1:00
    (250 yards in 20 minutes / 3050)

    #3
    Freestyle
    5 x 100 @ 2:00 best average
    (went 1:00, 1:02, 1:02, 1:01, 1:00) tiring

    #4
    Strong Stroke
    5 x 100 @ 2:00 best average - did Fly (when doing Fly, we may alt. Fly/Free by 100s)
    (went 1:07, 1:04, 1:08, 1:05, 1:09)

    #5
    Weak Stroke
    5 x 100 @ 2:00 best average - did Back
    (started 1:15ish, then brought them down to finish 1:11s on the final 2)
    (1500/4550)

    250 EZ

    ------------------------
    4800 Yards


    USAS meet coming up this weekend here at our home pool. It'll be very very crowded in there, and I'm swimming just about everything, but not the 100 Free or 1000 Free (no 1650 offered either). I'm also doing backstroke on the A medley relay. The relays are co-ed mixed relays as well, so that will be fun. We happen to have the Washington State H.S. Girls State Champ in the 100 Free/runner up in the 50 Free on our relay team, so that is always nice.

    --------------------------------

    Decided to get up early this morning in order to squeeze a swim in, but the Triathlon Train was not at the station. Probably good since it took me about twenty minutes to actually get out of bed. I was able to get in a good workout, mix of aerobic with some speed play, and get to work on time. Back in the pool on Wednesday...

    Taper time! I will gradually cut down yardage and intensity this week. I will just be cruising and doing meet warm ups next week. I may have done too much today ...

    No psych sheet yet for the huge SPMS meet in Long Beach. Odd, as it's this weekend.
