  1. MATT Friday Workout

    by , February 18th, 2011 at 08:47 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    SCY

    400 Warm up

    8x50 - :50 2 Easy/2 Hard
    100 Stroke - 2:00
    8x50 Kick - :50
    100 Stroke - 2:00
    200 IM - 3:00

    8x50 - :50 2 Easy/2 Hard
    100 Stroke - 2:00
    200 IM - 3:00
    300 Free - 4:00

    8x50 Drill - :50
    100 Stroke - 2:00
    200 IM - 3:00
    300 Free - 4:00
    2:00 Break
    400 Free - 5:00

    200 Cool down

    (3400 total)

    Weight is dropping fast since I've had a cold. Problem is I've run out of gas the last two days. I think it may be my body getting used to the daily grind again. I lasted through the final 300 free but had to pull up with 60 yards left to go on the 400. Felt really sick all of a sudden.

    Thanks to Allen, Arthur and Redbird (hopefully I didn't forget anyone) on the backstoke/breaststroke help. I'm already mixing some of the tips in and it is helping.

  2. Lake Washington Meet, Sunday 2/20 FAST TIMES :)

    by , February 17th, 2011 at 10:29 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    Get ready for some fireworks. This one's gonna be a fun one!!! There are some really fast swimmers in most of the events, making the final heats some real showdowns. I'm really looking forward to the 200 IM heat. In the top 6, Kirk, That Guy, myself, and a couple others are going to have a race. The 500 free is another good showdown with Kirk at the end of the meet.
    I'm in 200 fly, 200 IM, 100 back, 100 breast, & 500 Free
    Here's a copy of the psych sheet for all to view. Enjoy.

    DOUBLE Thu Feb 17th, 2011

    kinda modified this practice to be more like a fast friday practice incase I miss tomorrow morning.

    Whitney sent this scheduling Email a couple days ago
    Subject: [txla-masters] master's schedule
    There is NO Friday noon this week but we WILL have Thursday noon instead.
    Saturday 7-8:30 am at Dick Nichols
    Sunday 12-1:15 at UT; the marathon is on Sunday so traffic will be challenging plan accordingly.

    There are swim meets at UT (Conference & American Short Course) starting next Wednesday. Both of these big meets will impact our practice schedule. I will update you as soon as I know what they will be.

  6. Wednesday Workout

    by , February 17th, 2011 at 09:00 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Someone threw up in the pool last night so it was shut down this morning. Went ahead and drove into Huntsville to work out with HSA. They start earlier than we do so about half of what I did was solo.

    SCY

    No warm-up

    300 Free
    6 x 50 - 1:00 IM Order (no free)
    300 Free
    300 Free
    6 x 50 - :50 free
    300 Free

    8 x 100 up/down kick - 1:45 (:10)
    1-5 no breast stroke kick
    6-8 breast stroke kick

    200 drill down, free back

    200 Easy IM cool down

    (3000 Total)

    Taper appears to be gone now. I struggled a lot on the 300's. Might be due to a lack of warm-up. Worked on freestyle stroke w/ my right arm. Apparently, I'm recovering too wide which is allowing my hand to slide outward as I pull throught the stroke. Also worked on keeping my backstroke kick faster w/ smaller amplitude. I think it helped but I felt very out of synch.

    by , February 16th, 2011 at 04:53 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Pure recovery day --

    Gym:

    20 minutes ellipse, warm up pace

    20-25 minutes RC exercises

    broomstick twists and dislocations


    Swim/SCM/Solo:

    30 minute slow continuous swim

    10 minutes hottub

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

    Commentary:

    Felt flattened from the long day of drylands and the deep tissue. Decided to take a pure recovery day. These days are just ungodly boring, but they seem to be necessary for me to recover and they curb my natural impulse to overtrain. Tomorrow is an off day with appointments and errands and hopefully I'll be ready to kick Speedo's butt on Friday.

    I just looked online at the entries list of swimmers for the Lake Wash. Meet this Sunday, and there are 157 online people!!! That's huge!!! Plus however many more entered by mail. Gonna be a big meet. At least I'll have some R & R between events.

    I'm back to only swimming for an hour a morning again. Work put me back to 6:30am start time, but I still get to swim which is good.

    Warmup:
    200 Free
    100 Kick
    200 Pull

    1 x 300 IM Fast (went 3:43)

    1 x 100 IM Fast (1:07)

    Felt miserable after my swim Monday. By noon I had chills & aches. Mostly slept. Skipped Tuesday to recover. Felt great today! I've still got a little taper left. Usually have to take off my drag suit to make the fly sets. Didn't need to today. Might be I'm just a bit more confident and motivated after the meet. Hope it doesn't go away.

    Back to the grindstone again. Build it up again quickly for 3 days with a 1 day dropoff on Friday for Meet #3 in 3 weekends (next Sunday).
    I didn't get to swim yesterday in Portland before my drive back home. We went to the pool to swim in the morning, and between 8-10am they had water exercise/noodle huggers class taking up the entire two pools, so I just took off for my long drive home.

    Today's swim was good to get in the water and stretch out, but the water was so damn hot. Must have been 85-86 degrees. Way to hot to try to swim hard in, but we made an effort anyway.

    Warmup:
    300 Free
    400 Free Pull
    200 Back
    100 Kick

    20 x 100 Free
    4 @ 1:30
    4 @ 1:25
    4 @ 1:20
    4 @ 1:15
    4 @ 1:15 (supposed to be 1:10) but with the water the way it was it was tough enough on 1:15.

    8 x 50 Kick @ 1:00

    600 Pull (200 Free/200 Back/200 Free)

    8 x 25 Fly Fast @ :40

    by , February 14th, 2011 at 06:21 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    Warm up:

    600 various

    Main Sets:

    5 x 150 free @ 2:30
    -- Concentrated on kicking on my back off the flip turns. Not sure if this is a good strategy for the 50 free as it takes a few tenths to make the 180 degree turn to the stomach. But this may work for the 100 free (which I might swim later this year!)

    10 x "25s" done in 12 foot depth as:
    dolphin kick to bottom of pool, squat jump off bottom dolphin kicking as fast and high as possible. 10 seconds rest at wall.

    4 x 50s w/fins, done as:
    10 second speed kick at the wall right into fast 25 fly w/1 breath + 25 EZ + 15 seconds rest

    50 EZ

    4 x 150 backstroke @ 2:30
    -- Concentrated on 6 beat kicking. I'm concerned I may be 4 beat kicking on my 100s backs, so am focusing on this.

    10 x "25s" same as above

    4 x 50 w/fins, done as:
    10 second speed kick at wall right into fast 25 backstroke shooter + 25 EZ + 15 seconds rest

    50 EZ

    3 x 150 russian breast drill w/fins @ 2:45
    -- Concentrating on EVF on pull.

    10 x "25s" same as above

    4 x 50s w/fins, done as:
    10 second speed kick at wall right into fast 25 shooter on belly + 25 EZ + 15 seconds rest

    100 EZ

    Total: 4050

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

    Commentary:

    I seem to be ever so gradually getting better. Felt really tired when I first got in the water so I tried to jazz up the workout with some fun sprinty type things interspersed with aerobic work. I really hope getting a cold now somehow correlates to being healthy in March when I have a couple meets.

    Though today should have been my rest day, it works better for my schedule for that to happen on Wednesday, so I'm going to hit the gym tomorrow. I also have a massage booked for tomorrow, which I think my legs will appreciate. Though I did make it through today's workout without cramping!

    Short workout today. Swam solo. Everyone else took the day off after the meet. I really don't blame them and I probably should have also. With so many people sick around me, it was inevitable I'd get this also. I really don't like swimming w/ a cold but it is better than back pain. I got a solid day in at the meet Saturday and I don't think the cold really bothered my until later on Sunday.

    Despite the cold, I'm still tapered and it is fun to practice tapered. Swam a solid 2:22 on the 200. Everything seemed easier even w/ a drag suit on.
