    Comments:
    Set 1, the 3000 TT was an effort, it seems the whole week of swimming weighed down my arms and legs like lead, but in the last 1000 the stroke began to flow more. No matter how crappy I feel when starting a long swim, usually if I keep at it, making a diligent effort, somehow the stroke will come together. So I was very pleased to descend the 500 splits.

    Set 2 was awkward, sluggish because even after 900 yards of warm down I could still feel the effects of the 3000 TT. No matter how smooth or steady I attempted to pace the first 50, the second 50 really dropped off. The coach said I was out in 28 low to 27 mid consistently, but then my kick would fade and be gone by the last 25 because my thighs were cramping. It was supposed to be 7 rounds, but I gave up after 3 rounds.

    With my thighs trembling, I got out and sat on the block to massage my legs, drink and eat a little bit, then stretched about ten minutes. Hopped back in, played around for about 1200 yards of stroke swimming, planning to get out soon.

    Set 3 was an unexpected, but inspired moment for me. Coach Chuck was calling out times for 25 sprints in the lanes next to me, as I felt ok, just decided to give a go and took off with the next send-off. Now I felt strong and smooth doing the fly and free. Chuck was excited with the 12s in the fly, and then was running up and down the pool when I did the 11s for the free.

    FYI - I am a hard of hearing lifetime hearing aid user and water in my ears make it even worse, so I tend to be in my own world at times when swimming, which appears as if I am ignoring the coach or whoever is trying to talk to me. So Bob in the next lane tapped my shoulder saying Chuck was trying to tell me my times. Anyway, successful communication commenced once I got out, dried out my ears, and put in the hearing aids. Of course I am quite pleased with those times.

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

    The pool was blissfully free of noodlers today. In fact, there were two Reston masters swimmers there and one very pissed off distance swimmer who is not going to attend CZ since he was shut out of the 1650 (see thread on forum: http://forums.usms.org/showthread.ph...ips-Fairfax-VA).

    I did workout # 4 form the HIT forum: http://forums.usms.org/showthread.ph...eek-6-Feb-4-10. The pool seemed a bit warm today for aerobic work. Happily, my shoulder and elbow didn't hurt too badly, much less than my last set of PRP jabs.

  3. 02.08.13 - Friday workout

    by , February 8th, 2013 at 02:47 PM (Pete's swim blog)
    Feeling somewhat demotivated about blogging my taper. Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Dave, Danny, Roger and Meredith. Meredith got to swim hard since she isn't tapering. Never thought I'd be jealous of someone swimming a long hard fly set. Yesterday, we truncated a workout from the HIT forums. Lots of 25s on 40 or so. I think we did about 2000 yards.

    Today, we did a broken 500. I did better than I thought I would. After 2 days of light workouts, I'm starting to recover a bit. Hopefully it will continue over the next few days.

    SCY

    600 Warm up
    Splashed around, practiced turns for a while.

    6 x 50 - :50
    2:00 Rest
    500 Hard, broken @ 50s, rest :10s
    Did 5:27. Hope that simulates what I can do in Auburn. I'd be really happy w/ anything under 5:30. On the 9th or so 50, lactic acid started building up pretty bad but the 50s were fairly smooth and I was able to hold :32 to :33 fairly easily.

    100 Easy

    4 rounds of (IM Order by round):
    * 2 x 50 Stroke - :40 easy/hard
    * 2 x 50 kick - :40 easy/hard

    Called times out for Roger's broken 400 IM and out.

    (1900 total - probably did a bit more)

  5. Workout 02/07-08/13

    by , February 8th, 2013 at 12:25 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Well, I was going to get some good swimming in Wednesday, but I was run down, mostly from tiling I guess.

    Thursday I got in 1800yds at the Rec solo, nothing too remarkable. Drove to Philly last night, and was able to get into the pool on UPenn this morning, which is a block from the hotel.

    w/u:
    200 Fr/200 Bk/200 IM drill
    4 x 100 on 1:40

    Two times thru:
    - 4 x 50 kick on :60
    - 2 x 150 FR on 2:15 pull with buoy

    Four times thru:
    - 25 burst/cruise stroke IMO into 25 dps fr on :50
    - 100 fr on 1:40 with snorkel

    Finish with 200 IM with agility paddles

    4 x 50 Quarters Strong on :60
    200 loosen and out
    (Solo/Sheerr Pool/3400m/70 min)
    --------------------------------------

    While here to visit my daughter at Drexel, I was able to get in contact with the UPenn folks and access to the pool. It is 55 yards long, with a submersible bulkhead dividing the pool into 25 yards and 25 meters. I choose meters and enjoyed a lane to myself the whole time. Water was a cool 80 degrees, and crystal clear. A good change from the 86 at the Rec yesterday!



    I was going to try to meet up with Tom either tonight or tomorrow for a swim, but with mega storm Nemo bearing down, I'm going to hang out in town and get ready to head home tomorrow night. It the weather is as bad as forecasted (18 - 20 inches back home), we'll stay another night and return Sunday.

    Now, back to eating my way thru Philly!

  6. Week 18 - Friday

    by , February 8th, 2013 at 09:14 AM (After a long rest)
    Today I felt horrible during the warmup but got better as the workout went on. By the end of the workout I felt pretty strong and good. I guess a night off last night was beneficial. Ironically when I spoke to my coach about last night he said he was waiting for me on deck and had a lane ready for me. I saw the note on the door and took it as a sign. Oh well, a night off was overdue and I benefitted from a good nights sleep also.

    Warmup
    400 with snorkel
    6x50 catchup drill on 45
    200 easy

    Main set
    6x100 IMs on 1.20
    2x500 done as 250 cruise holding 1.10 pace, 250 trying to hold 1min pace per 100 with 30 seconds rest between 500
    4x(4x50 on 35 holding 200 pace, 100 easy)
    200 easy
    200 free with flippers AFAP. If I did not go under 1.55 everyone had to do it again(no pressure)
    4x25 no breath on 45
    100 back flippers AFAP. If I did not go under 55 everyone had to do it again.

    Warm down

    100 easy

    Total 4400

    The IMs were tough but got easier as I got going. I held 1.15s. the 500s were much better. I held 1.10 on the first 250 and 1.01 pace on the second 250 on both 500s. The 4x50 sets were really tough. Myself and one other swimmer split the lane which helped me push these. I kind of felt bad towards the end because he was eating wake the whole way. After the first one I was holding 28 and 29s. Number 3 on sets 3 and 4 hurt bad, but I picked up number 4 each time so it must have been a mental thing. My 200 AFAP with flippers was 1.48. One of the young guys in the next lane went out like a rocket which again helped me, and I realled him in during the middle 100 and I even finished strong. The 100 back was fun since I don't do much strong back any more and I went 54. Lots od SDKs off the walls. The no breathers were as usual, painful. I did 15 minutes of Vasa swim bench with two bungee cords for resistance at the end.

    Mostly moderate swimming with 300 yards of speed at the end; still a bit sore/tired from yesterday workout and hot water pretty much unmotivated me; all the strokes feel stronger & better than ever...but I will need feed back from others on that; Set 5, a 12.3/25FR, and 26.6/50FR, from push-offs are my best FR times in 10 years. Slowly I am making progress.

    Normally I'd do fly, but I don't care to attempt lots of it with the waves and multiple bodies in the water around...trying to avoid shoulder pain...and I'm one who doesn't have to train fly to still compete in fly. Lucky me.

    Had a meeting to go to at 6:00 this evening so I could only get in 55 minutes of swimming. This week has been super busy so my time in the pool has been limited.

  15. Week 18 - Wednesday pm

    by , February 6th, 2013 at 09:09 PM (After a long rest)
    My cold/allergies felt better this evening. Tonight continued in the vain of this cycle with long yardage and tough times. I jumped in about 10 minutes early and knocked out the first 700 of the warmup in the public lanes before joining the masters workout. I fell apart towards the end of this workout, but it's not all bad. I don't think my sleep problem will be a problem tonight and I am very tired.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    300 free with snorkel
    200 free with snorkel
    100 free with snorkel

    Main set
    3x(1000 on 10.50, 400 IM on 5.30)

    Total 5200

    I went 10.45 on the first 1000, pulled the second with paddles and went 10.45, the last I pulled and used my snorkel but fell apafrost 300. I finished but was no where near the time. The 400 IMs were active recovery. This was 10400 yards for the day.

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

    Feel better today! I didn't have time for my usual 90 minute swim, but still feel like I got some quality work in. I was a bit tired from yesterday's effort, but wanted to get some speed work in because I am having PRP tomorrow on the elbow/shoulder/neck. Actually, not conventional PRP. I am doing a new treament called Plasma Lysing, which is the newest innovation. They take the super-concentrated platelets and, instead of injecting them to the injured sites, they lyse the growth factors out of the platelets and freeze them overnight. The idea is that by only injecting the growth factors (instead of the other stuff in the plasma), they accelerate stem growth more quickly. I went in for the blood draw today. They took 240 ml., so I am planning a recovery workout tomorrow. I'm sure I'll just be kicking on Friday.

    Teen Fort asked me for a workout today. I told her to do one my HIT workouts. She said they're too complicated and too hard. hahaha
