  1. 07.04.12 - Wednesday workout

    by , July 4th, 2012 at 07:39 PM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam at community center outside Colorado Springs. After struggling all week, I discovered three things working against me. First, the altitude. Still hurts but I'm getting used to it. Second, I found the posted pool temp... 85 . I thought the altitude was why it felt warm. Turns out it was just warm. Finally, there are two jets that focus water directly into the middle of the three lap lanes. I either get the full force of one jet in the outside lanes or the combined force in the middle. I look at it as good training even if it is wearing me out. Less yardage today. This was all I could stand.

    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    1100
    4 bursts and a build 25, rest easy

    15-20 min RC & stretching


    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Still feeling somewhat discombobulated. For once, I'm glad my best events aren't on day one of the meet. I think I'm going to need a "get the cobwebs out" swim. 50 free is my first event. I expect that to feel somewhat rough as I've not done any sprint freestyle in practice at all. Or any freestyle really.

    I did check in for the 200 back. Off to start packing!

    Comments
    • What difference it makes when the water temp is 3-4 degrees cooler!
    • The SWF summer weather has arrived; hot humid mornings with air temp over 80 by 8am, slightly dryer heat of 90 by noontime, with off/on traveling thunderstorms in the afternoons.
    • My freestyle "feel" and "form" appear to still be intact after 5 weeks of inconsistant and more casual workouts. Swimming Fly and Br is still satisfactory as well, but the backstroke feels clumsy and unstable. From about June to September, it is my experience that the sun glares down at me more direct and intense when I do backstroke and therefore I do it less.
    • Lee County schools will reopen in early August, so when the kids are back in class, I should be a be able to start rebuilding my FR endurance base for some 5K OW swims in October.

    Back at the community pool outside Colorado Springs. Had a lane to myself and swam solo. Did a little better today. Finished off where I left yesterday and then moved on to some IM stuff. Still taking it easy and very frustrated with my lack of speed and recovery. Once I was done with my first set, I noticed my fins were missing. I looked around and found nothing. The fins are duct taped and barely holding together. Could not imaging anyone actually stealing them. I asked a lady playing with her kids if anyone had seen them. She checked with her kids and they sheepishly pointed to the middle of the pool where they had been abandoned. After a quick scolding, they returned them. I didn't care so much about them being in trouble... but I was glad to have my fins for a set later.

  5. Workout 07/03/12:

    by , July 3rd, 2012 at 09:33 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    w/u: 200 FR/200 IM drill

    10 x 200's various
    - drills, kicks, swim, stroke work

    200 float and out
    (Solo/Hoosick Falls Pool/2600yds/45 min)
    -------------------------------------

    Wow. This last week has been a blur due to a nasty head cold, which was very similar to one I had at the beginning of the year. Last Monday during my double I swallowed some water, then the sore throat, mucous machine and sinus clogging began. I missed the Berkshire's swim at Richmond Pond (although Brent was able to go) and battled this illness while working, taking a nap during lunch and basically sleeping whenever I have been home. Big disappointment. Add to that the closing of our town's pool for at least July and August for repairs to the building around the pool due to chlorine exhaust corrosion, and I am bumming!

    The nearest pool is just across the NY border in Hoosick Falls, an outdoor, five-lane 25yd pool built in the 60's. I have never been there before, but since I am feeling somewhat better I headed over today for the "workout" above just to get into the clear water on the beautiful morning we had. The pool is concrete, but has a liner like the KMart pool I have in the backyard. You can't really do flipturns (and I didn't) because when you push off, there is two inches of play between the two membranes. Wild stuff. There is a really interesting cross current too, between the diving well on the southwest side of the pool and the kiddie splash area on the northeast side, which was pretty trippy.

    Hey, it's a place to swim. I have tomorrow off and then work Thursday, and on Friday the family and I are heading up to Newport to get checked in for the Kingdom swim. Not exactly the type of taper I was planning on before my first ten mile swim. Some things we just don't have control over, and can only make the best of the circumstances were in. I am not able to take a full breath without coughing, so my focus for the swim is completion and also meeting the forumites who will be there.

    I do have access to one of the gyms in town now, so I will be dropping in next week to work on cardio. Peaks for Portland is two weeks after Kingdom, and I plan on supplementing my training with some more lake swims to keep jbs and slknight at bay. Next week I will be heading back to Phili for my daugther's orientation at Drexel, so I might try to meet up with Tom again for a swim. After Peaks, I will restart the lifting program in earnest (although I am still using my bands to keep my shoulders strong for the swims at this point).

    Good luck to all you Natsy folks this weekend, that pool looks amazing! Maybe they'll keep the flame throwers loaded for a few swim!

  6. Summer 2012

    by , July 3rd, 2012 at 09:22 PM (Distance Flyer)
    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.

  7. Tuesday, July 3

    Some newbies joined us today, including one of the youth coaches. We had a total of nine swimmers. Ray led the workout and it was good to have Dave B. back. Actually felt better later in the workout and was actually pretty happy with the 100's and 50's. Swimming in a lane by myself and a couple of longer intervals allowed me to work my backstroke.

    100 )short warmup due to late start)
    3x300 on 4:30 (went 4:15; 4:10; 4:07)
    100 back w/paddles
    4x150 on 2:15 (stayed around 2:00)
    100 back w/paddles
    4x150 back w/paddles on 2:15
    150 free
    4x100 on 1:45 (held at 1:15 to 1:17)
    100 back w/paddles
    4x100 back w/paddles on 1:45 (1:20's)
    150 free
    4x50 on :45 (:37 down to :35)
    4x50 back w/paddles on :45 (:38 down to :35)
    4x50 free

    • Water was hot. It was all I could do to swim the workout today. Took a five minute cold shower after the 500s, but I was not able to swim any faster without overheating on the last 1000.

    I am really really looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight. I was on a mattress on the first floor of our house last night. (My bedroom is on the third floor, which was an oven.) The house is finally cooled down now though. I don't feel very good in the water, but that's probably from being so tired. Right now I'm just trying to stay mentally positive in the face of a compromised taper. It's hell when life gets in the way of life!

    It was very nice to see Speedo today. Why, he barely looks like a swimmer anymore now that he's a multi sporter. I tried to goad him into a 100 free for time, but he was having none of it. He was talking smack about doing the 200 IM at the Hains Point meet. I tried to warn him about the the lack of fly and breast turns, but he is embracing being a show pony in a niche market.

    I've tried twice to go to the grocery store after throwing out two fridge/freezers full of food, but there were no parking spots. So I remain in the AC waiting for the rest of my family to get back home.

  11. 07.02.12 - Monday workout

    by , July 3rd, 2012 at 12:01 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Had a fun weekend. Left Thursday afternoon for a 19 hour trek w/ 4 kids to Colorado. Kids were great the whole way. Driving at night helps. I was concerned my back was not going to make it but turns out I was fine. I swam a few laps in a neighborhood pool but it was tough to do much between dodging kids and being really tired. Going from 700 feel above sea level to 5000 feet above sea level didn't help either.

    Saturday, we headed out from Denver to Rocky Mountain National park which was awesome. When we left, it was 85 degrees out and sunny. By the time we got to the top of some really high mountain, it was snowing. Later it rained. The roads were the most terrifying I've every driven. The park apparently doesn't have the budget for guard rails. I don't know if they would have helped any but I would have felt better with something between the road and the cliff. The 13000 foot altitude made Denver air seem much more reasonable. Fact is that I'm acclimating poorly. Wife is fine with it, kids are fine with it but I (being the only one in the family that seriously exercises) am constantly short of breath. Went ahead and took Sunday off to see if I could rest up a little before seeking out a good workout.

    Today, we headed to Colorado Springs which is another couple thousand feet above Denver (at least it is outside the city where we are). Found a nice community pool that kicked a couple floaters out of the lane so I could swim laps. I actually offered to share but they insisted on moving. Swam solo. Took it fairly easy today but put in a good amount of distance. I'll probably keep taking it easy for a couple more days as I get acclimated.

    Yesterday we had a big Carne Asada dinner for my wife's birthday. Plenty of charcoal smoke in the air, and the aroma of meat!! Mmmmmmm...She's now the same age as me for about a month.

    Another 10 hour plus day at work again today, so I was pretty well beat when I got to the YMCA pool tonight.

    Warmup:

    5 x 100 Free @ 1:30 right into
    5 x 100 Free @ 1:25/1:20/1:15/1:10/1:05 - came in about 1:06 on the last one


    Main Set:

    6 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:20 right into
    6 x 75 Free @ 1:00 (held :53-:55s) right into
    6 x 50 Free Pull @ :40 (held :35s) right into
    6 x 25 Fly @ :30

    A couple guys got in with me at this point (they were swimmers, so it was okay) so I just swam easy while they warmed up:

    5 x 100 Free @ 2:00 (held 1:08ish)

    10 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:00 (:50ishs)

    -----------------------
    3500 Yards in 1 hour 2 min.


    Worst part of the day: Got picked for Jury Duty for two weeks in August. Let's hope for no big cases to blow through Wenatchee next month.


    Better part of the day...got my Metallica decal stickers in the mail for the back window of my truck.

  13. Still Powerless, Monday July 2

    by , July 2nd, 2012 at 12:55 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Sunday:

    RC/Yoga/Foam rolling, 45 minutes

    Stepped on the pool deck for a swim and was informed that a kid had an accident in the pool and it was closed. Seriously?! I drove to our summer league pool, which fortunately had reopened. I did 1200 SCM with 4 bursts and an up tempo 25. My brain is just not on swimming right now.

    Monday:

    Still no power. Day 4. And there is no repair date for my area on the power co website, though there is an estimate that 85-90% will have power by Thursday. There is also the threats of thunder storms the next few days that could hamper power restoration efforts. Can't catch a break here in No Va.

    I am sitting in Whole Foods eating lunch and pondering whether to get a pedicure or go to the gym for a few hours and blow my taper. Power outages and taper don't mix well.

    I do have an ART appt later ths afternoon.

  16. No Power, Sat & Sun

    by , July 1st, 2012 at 01:02 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Disaster struck Friday night. A strange storm barreled through northern Virginia leaving over 2 million without power. I'm in day three of no power. And there is no fix date for my area listed on the website. We are simultaneously getting a heat wave. I haven't slept for two nights because of heat. (All hotels in a 2 hour radius at booked.). Got up to take cold showers twice in the middle of the night. I've heard estimates of 5-7 days ... I may just have to drive up to Pittsburgh where friends have power if this persists. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around Nationals if I can't sleep. I don't really want a repeat of day one at Greensboro. That was not fun.

    My gym and all pools are closed. Saturday was the first time I remember an NVSL meet ever being cancelled. But another Sport & Health member club is open. I swam 1400 meters there yesterday and did 30 minutes of RC and stretching. Will do the same today.

    Keep your fingers crossed for power!

    EZ 200 FR

    Comments
    • Today was the best day this week as far as feel for the water and FR stroke consistency.
    • Before last round in the broken 4000 FR, took extra 30 seconds to put on paddles. I use medium size paddles for swimming FR as a full stroke (not as Pull w/buoy or tube) to swim fast with a strong pulling effort keeping stroke balanced with steady streamlined flutter kick.
    • Will begin light drylands again on Sunday and rebuild in to my normal strength & body core circuit over the next two weeks.

    I was tired today, mostly from work. I think after today I was around 51 hours or so, plus another 8-10 hours tomorrow as well. Paycheck is decent, but I'm worn out. Swimming is just a luxury this summer for me, and I'm making the most of it.

    First 5 - 1:10-1:12s

    5 @ 1:30
    1 @ each: 1:25, 1:20, 1:15, 1:10, 1:05
    made 'em all

    100 EZ

    10 x 50 Free medium/Fly FAST by 25s @ 1:00 (went :34/:35s)

    -----------------------
    3600 Yards


    =================================

    One more week until my 1500 LCM & others in the local USAS meet. Also, a few days ago I also signed up for the USAS LSC Champs meet in Spokane at the end of July. Of course, I'm only signed up for Sunday due to my work schedule, and had to pick the events available to me: 100 Free, 100 Fly, 1500 Free (not 200 Back).
    My gosh, I've got two 1500s LCM this summer, and two OW swims! What did I do to myself. Oh well, I'm not training too serious, and am putting no pressure on myself. Just having fun this summer...and happy I can actually swim.


    Oh...and in other news...I followed Lochte's advice and had a "home cooked meal" (and no fast food) for dinner after practice.
    A can a Progresso Hearty Chicken w/ Noodles soup, corn on the cob, and some gatorade.
    I can already feel myself making the OTs in 4 years. ...or at least craving McDonalds or something better in a couple hours.
