  1. Budapest week 9 - Thursday

    by , July 6th, 2017 at 11:43 PM (After a long rest)
    I didn't not feel that great this morning despite sleeping great and feeling good before I swam. I misread Tom's workout which was in scy while I am training LCM and the 200s after the warmup set I did on very short intervals and paid the price as the workout went on. I was whooped and at the end struggled to hold a 1:20 base pace today.

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on 1min

    main sets
    6x200 odds back on 2:45, evens IM on 3min
    12x50 kick on 1min
    4x(2x50 free on :40, 2x100 free on 1:20, 300 free on 4mins)

    warm down
    200 easy

    after the kids workout today we went on a really cool hike to devils kitchen which was just stunning. The weather was awesome and our kids really enjoyed the hike. Thus far the kids training camp has gone great and I am having a lot of fun.

  2. Budapest week 9 - Wednesday

    by , July 6th, 2017 at 12:02 AM (After a long rest)
    Yesterday I traveled with 30 15-18 year olds to Grand Junction for a 10 day training camp. To keep the costs down for the kids we flew to Denver and drove over the Rockies to Grand Junction. The flight and drive were uneventful and despite not being a big fan of driving a passenger van I had an absolute blast. The scenery across Colorado through Breckinridge, Vale and Aspen was spectacular. The kids were terrific and we laughed and joked the whole way.

    Today was was my first altitude practice and I deliberately just stretched everything out and did not push too hard.

    I had a great night of sleep last night and felt really good this morning other than tightness across my shoulders. I am so overdue a massage I am thinking this will be a gift to myself I will arrange for when I get back fro my Colorado.

  4. Budapest Week 8 - Sunday

    by , July 2nd, 2017 at 09:17 PM (After a long rest)
    I was particularly sore across my back and shoulders this morning. There was a life guard class going on at the pool early so I swam early. I used the warmup and pull set to stretch out and did feel much better as I swam further.

    Pool setup LCM

    warmup
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catch-up on 1min

    main sets
    8x50 kick on 1min
    8x100 pull free on 1:30
    4x(2x50 kick with fins on 1min, 1x50 free afap with fins on 1min)
    200 easy
    4x50 breast on 1:10 trying to hold :45 or faster

    warm down
    200 easy

    i went :26,:26,:25,:25 on the 50 frees with fins. I tried doing the gallop stroke on free and it really helps when I wear fins. On 50s breast I was :43/:44s and surprisingly felt quite good.

  5. Budapest week 8 - Saturday

    by , July 1st, 2017 at 09:58 PM (After a long rest)
    Yesterday Tom agreed to put pads in the pool this morning and we suited up for some fast swimming. I felt pretty good during warmup and swam great for where we are in the season; I was really pleased with where I am.

    Pool setup LCM

    Meet warmup
    400 free
    6x50 catch-up on 1min
    6x50 kick on 1:10
    6x60 as open, close, easy on 1min
    200 easy

    we then suited up and did 3 swims. Since I have not really gone all out since the surgery I have gradually been increasing both distance and intensity over the past few months. One area I have not really got to yet was dive Sprints. Today I choose to swim the 100 free, 50 free and 50 back. We swam about 200-300 between swims and these were on a pretty short rest interval for dive sprinting.

    100 free 59.3. I was hoping to be under 1:01 so this was a really nice swim and until about 75 I felt awesome and then the elephant jumped on my back. I am not swimming this in Budapest due to the event lineup but I like swimming this LCM and I think it's a good gauge as to where I am right now.

    50 free 27.0. This would have read so much better as 26.9 but it was another good swim and other than breathing way too much I felt awesome.

    50 Back 31.8. I kicked out way to far on this 50 and came up too deep. Despite this it was a great swim and I was very happy.

    This is the first time I have really gone for it and was a little apprehensive but I was very relieved that I was completely pain free in my elbow.

    I am heading to Colorado on Tuesday for a 10 day altitude camp with my senior group and hope to swim and train in between there workouts. It's going to be a busy 10 days.

  6. Budapest week 8 - Friday

    by , June 30th, 2017 at 05:27 PM (After a long rest)
    I slept hard last night and would have slept through my alarm if it were not for my awesome wife waking me up and giving me a coffee. I normally don't drink coffee before practice(I make up for it after practice) but this morning it was exactly what I needed.

    I felt ok during warmup and about half of the main set today but was really tired from that point on. Despite being tired I had a good workout.

    Pool setup LCM

    Warm up
    400 Free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :50

    Main Sets
    4x(100 fast free on 2mins, 200 IM on 3mins, 4x50 on 1min IMO by round trying to hold 200 race pace)
    200 easy
    4x100 with fins as free, back, back, free on 2mins
    12x50 smooth perfect stroke

    Warm down
    200 easy

    I was holding 1:08-1:09 on the 100s, using the IM as active recovery(but these still hurt) and was going 2:50s, and then choose to do back,free,back,free on the 50's by round. On the back I was :35-:36 and on the free I was :33s. My arms felt really tired towards the end of this set. I was not expecting Tom to throw 4 100s afap with fins at us and I must have pulled a funny face because he made a sarcastic comment about me not wanting to do these. The guy in the lane next to me was one of our faster young guys and he likes to race so I had to go for it on the free. I was :56 on the first and :55 on the last 100 which hurt so bad. On the back I was 1min and :59. I was hoping to go under 1:05 which I obviously did but I was very surprised how quick my back was because it felt horrible.

  7. Budapest week 8 & 9 - catchup

    by , June 29th, 2017 at 01:29 PM (After a long rest)
    The past week has been extremely busy on both the work and personal front. I swam Tuesday through Thursday last week(Budapest week 8) and i am feeling pretty decent in the water. Friday through Sunday my daughter swum at the George Block Invite in San Antonio. The meet was at Northside ISD Aquatic center which is really an awesome facility. My parents are visiting from England and our original plan was for my wife and mother to accompany my daughter and I to the meet. Unfortunately my mother was sick and my wife stayed at home leaving my daughter and I to travel together to the meet. I managed to get a workout in at the Old George Block pool which was setup as 25m, but that was the extent of my swimming over the weekend. The couple of days off probably did me good anyhow.

    My daughter had an incredible meet and got her Futures cut in the 200 back and missed her Juniors cut by just over a second. She is very young but her time qualified her to swim with our Senior team at the NCSA summer champs meet in Indianapolis the week after TAGS in early August. She has improved a lot as a 13 year old and we are hoping that the Indy meet will be a fun meet that gives her some great experience surrounded by older girls on the team she idolizes.

    We got back from San Antonio at midnight on Sunday and I was very tired on Monday but hauled myself up to swim. Monday afternoon I had to head to San Francisco with work. My customer is in Redwood City and I was able swam with Stanford masters on Tuesday and Wednesday. As usual the group at Stanford were awesome and I had a lot of fun. Wednesday morning Hannah Boyd who was one of the few Stanford girls not at nationals this week trained with us. Hannah was really fast and was equally as nice. It's always great to see talented athletes who are also very grounded. Patrick(pwb) was in the bay area for work also and we managed to grab a quick breakfast together after practice which was fun.

    I arrive home at midnight again on Wednesday but managed once again to haul myself up and out of bed for a morning swim. The swim this am was not that great but I was there and will feel better for the swim. I should be back on a normal schedule the rest of the week.

    Next week I am heading to Grand Junction, Colorado with our senior group for a 10 day training camp at University of Colorado Mesa. My primary role is coach but I plan on training at altitude while I am there, but the schedule will be very busy. Unfortunately I also have to do some work while I am there but should be able to fit everything in. I am very lucky that my work role allows me some flexibility.

    It's already been a crazy swimming summer and it's only going to get better as world's approaches.

    Summer pool schedule is in effect and I found out that Masters picked up an extra 30 minutes on our Tuesday night swims. Matt and a friend were there doing their own thing so I did the above on my own. Still struggling to find the time to make it to the pool on a consistent basis with lots of family/work engagements. I did make another trip to PA over the week with my son, meeting my aunt for a ballgame in Allentown (Phillies triple-A team the Iron Pigs), exploring the Steel Stacks in Bethlehem, and then visiting the cemetery where my grandmother is buried as well as another where her mom is buried. Learning more of my mother's side of the family.

  9. Budapest Week 8 - Monday

    by , June 19th, 2017 at 01:19 PM (After a long rest)
    I had a great fathers day and spent time with my wife, both my kids and my mum and dad; cant ask for much more than that. Despite a nap yesterday I was really tired this morning and probably well overdue a day off or at least a full blown recovery day. The way my schedule is working out I start to back off when I go to training camp with the kids on 4th July so I should start to feel ok I guess sometime after that. This morning I felt exhausted! Monday tends to be very aerobic centric and today was no exception.

    Pool Setup LCM
    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :55

    Main Sets
    3x(2x50 back drill on :55, 200 free on 2:40, 100 back on 1:25)
    3x(50 fast kick on 1min, 100 kick as 50 fly, 50 flutter on 2mins, 50 kick as 25 fast, 25 smooth on 1min)
    3x(5x100 free Rd1 on 1:30, Rd2 on 1:20, Rd3 on 1:15)
    200 easy
    3x(300 free on 4mins, 100 back on 1:30)

    warm down
    200 easy

    Despite doing ok today I just never really got going. The transition set was surprisingly hard and the closest I came to feeling good today was on the 15x100s where I made all of them. The 300s at the end felt horrible and I just felt steam rolled today. Just no energy and very tired.

  17. Budapest Week 7 - Monday

    by , June 12th, 2017 at 01:28 PM (After a long rest)
    I went fishing yesterday afternoon with my son. The weather forecast was awesome(overcast with a light breeze); unfortunately it was wrong and it was very sunny and windy(15mph) which made kayaking very very challenging. Despite the difficulties of fishing we had fun and as always it was great hanging with my son. The pond we went to is about 30 miles north of where we live in the country. The pong is 25 acres and is really quiet with the only sound coming from the many cows in the fields.

    We did not get back til about 9pm so I went to bed later than normal(which was worth it but I will be tired tomorrow). I slept great and woke up feeling good.

    Pool setup LCM

    Warm up
    400 free with snorkel
    6x50 catchup on :55

    Main Sets
    3x(3x300 pull with paddles and bouy on 3:45 descend 1-3)
    100 easy
    4x150 kick with fins on 2:30 as streamline flutter on back, streamline fly on back, streamline flutter on back
    12x50 4 fly, 4 back, 4 free on :50 odds drill, evens build
    100 easy
    4x100 on 2mins as 25 free afap, 50 easy, 25 back afap

    Warm down
    4x100 on 2mins no faster than 1:30 slow perfect free

    I felt great in warmup but after the first round of 300s started to tire, but held my stroke long and was getting between 3-8 seconds rest per 300 in the round. I held it together pretty well until the last round and on the last 2 came in right at the interval. I was whooped after this set, but I was very happy with the pace. The kick was easy and I used it as active recovery. My lats hurt pretty bad after the pull so I kicked wriggling around trying to loosen my lats in the streamline position(not easy). The drill/build was very unimpressive and was really a continuation of the active recovery. The 4x100ís was hard but I went after the fast 25s and felt pretty decent by the end. On the warm down Tom insisted on no faster than 1:30 which sounds easy but I learnt that my sink speed is faster than 1:30 so had to really try to not compromise stroke for speed. On the last one he said if I did not slow down I would be doing a 400 fly, so I swam with my legs split wider than my shoulders and basically dragged my legs and went 1:31 

    Looked at my title just now and realized I am almost half way through the training for Budapest! I only have about 6 weeks til we taper!!!! Planning on one more phase of increased distance and intensity after this week, before I head to Colorado with the kids for their training camp(and I get to train at altitude for 10 days).

  19. Budapest week 6 - Saturday

    by , June 10th, 2017 at 02:04 PM (After a long rest)
    We had Indian for dinner last night and the. I once again headed to bed early. I had a great night of sleep and headed to the pool looking forward to working out with Bill and the rest of the Rockwall gang. Today I arrived early and again swum 90 minutes. I hope to do more 90 min workouts next week and then step it up again for two more weeks before I head to Colorado with the seniors for their training camp.

    Today i I was tired and in particular my arms were heavy but I felt great in the water and felt strong. Today was one of those bottle the workout up days where I wish I swam this good everyday. This was a huge contrast from Wednesday where I felt so so so bad and swam bad too.

    i knew today was going to be a good practice when I was going 1:14s on the transition sets 100s going very smooth on the easy parts. On the 100s at race pace Tom to,d everyone to go 1:40,2min, 1:30, 2min which was my plan, but I felt good and decided to just keep dropping the interval. I held 1:06/1:07 for all of them except the last 2 where I went 1:08/1:09. Tom said my back was purple but I really did not feel that bad. Towards the end I just could not go faster and my arms felt heavy the whole way. I would never have thought I would be able to go this fast after going so slow on Wednesday, but I did. I focused on the very next 100 and never thought too far ahead. I was whooped at the end of practice and had a foggy head while I was coaching but it was worth it.

    I went to bed at 6:45pm last night and slept solid. I literally don't think I moved. I woke just before my alarm was due to go off and felt so much better than earlier in the week.

    Today was a good workout. The early kick was tough. In fact I don't believe we have done 50s on this quick an interval LCM in a long time. I was getting 3-5 seconds rest and it was tough. Interestingly I swam way faster on the 100 free on the next set despite feeling very relaxed. I was going 1:12/1:13s throughout and then went :38/:39s on the back. The underwater with find were harder than it first sounded and I was tired at the end. I was not expecting the afap 100s but again did ok going 1:06s until the last one when I put on just paddles(no bouy) and went a 1:03. If only I could surgically implant paddles. The last set we worked on overkicking with a breath control pattern and again this was tougher than it sounds.

    Today was good and I hope I am gradually getting used to the longer workouts. Work has been kicking my butt and hopefully with a new guy I brought on a week ago life will start to ease up a little; famous last words.

    One of my training partners(Bill) who moved to Indiana is back this weekend so we will have fun with him tomorrow.
