  2. 7/30/09 Fat Man in Hot Water

    by , July 31st, 2009 at 02:33 PM (Fat Man back in the Pool)
    It was over 100 yesterday as I headed to the pool. The aerators where going full time but the water temperature was still warmer than I would prefer.

    Aquatic Center LCM

    300 Warm up

    4 x 200 - odds IM, evens Free on 3:30, I led the first half as a lot of folks were late getting in. First IM felt real strong, no piano drop on the fly, just smooth turnover. Not much rest before the free started. Folks joining in voted to move to 3:45 interval. 2nd IM was dragging on the fly, and not near as smooth through out. bagged the 200.

    100 easy

    8 x 100 odds IM/drill, evens free build on 2:00
    100 easy

    8 x 50 odds IM order, evens free fast on 1:00
    100 easy

    Shoulders hurt from this one. I would have loved the workout if the water was 10 degrees cooler.

    Been looking through old work out logs from my first stint as a Masters Swimmer (pre FatMan) and the logs run from 1983 to 88 when I moved to Austin. Mileage seems to be the same, only the interval and the girth of the swimmer have changed in the current workouts.

  8. Thursday Swim

    by , July 31st, 2009 at 12:26 AM (Swimming, Life, and Other Stuff!)
    Tonight was LCM at FPAC with the Nasti's.
    The taper workout was 1,900 meters so I did a little more to try and feel good.
    Here's the workout:

    *600 free warm-up swim
    *4 X 100 on 2:15 (drill/swim/build speed/sprint) divided into 25's.
    *200 otter kick w/fins on back.
    *200 ez pull with paddles
    *5 X 50 on 1:30 (start in center of pool and work on turns.
    *2 X 50 sprint w/start from block
    *150 cool-down swim
    *200 free swim
    *200 IM swim
    *200 flutter kick half prone, half supine
    *2 X 50 Fly (rest :30 inbetween)
    2,600 LCM

    -I've got poison ivy all over arms and some on legs. One really fat gooey patch is directly on top of a big scar on my left arm. It itched so bad last night that I finally got up around 2:30 am and read a book till 5:00 am.
    -My youngest daughter bought me a new speedo while in Florida with her Dad. It has a heart and says "I (heart) swimming. She makes fun of me cause I like to swim and thought the suit was perfect for me. I'll wear it alot and really look like a dork for sure!
    -Coaching Question- I've never participated in a 5 day meet. I really like the 1,500 and it's on the last day of the meet. (Monday) I swim 1 event per day except relay day when I do 4 events. QUESTION: I feel like I should be doing some type of decent workout Thurs. through Saturday in order to hold form for the 1,500. It just seems like all that rest would cause de-conditioning or somehow be counterproductive to a good swim on Monday. I need advice and a plan of attack!

  9. A busy week!

    by , July 30th, 2009 at 11:13 PM (Elise's Fitness Fun)
    On Monday, when I did my B-70 experiment, got in about 1,000 yards of swimming. Went to the yoga class that night.

    Tuesday, I didn't have time to do anything. Was busy preparing the final lecture and the final exam for my business law class. Also busy preparing for the swim meet my team had today.

    Wednesday was a frustrating day. Went to swim at the Y. Had a bozo walk across my lane on purpose and harrass the lifeguard about leaving in too many lanes during family swim. I don't have much patience for 40 year old men that belittle 16 year old girls who are trying to help out the lap swimmers. I got in his face and told him that he didn't need to speak to the lifeguard that way. He blew up and went upstairs to complain, saying that the lifeguards ganged up on him. I think he thought I was a lifeguard. Glad he went on home.

    All of this cut into my workout time, so ended up only getting in about 1500. Took a quick run later in the evening - an easy 3.7 miles. Ran at a really slow pace - 10 minute miles.

    This morning, got up and made it down to the Y for the 5:30 lap swim. Things are much more peaceful then. When I get back to regular swim training after Nationals, as much as I despise training in the morning, I may resort to the 5:30 workouts to avoid bozos. Got in 2000 yards. Lots of fin work and shooters.

    My swim coaching is over for the summer and the only thing I have left to do on the busines law class is to give the final exam on Monday. I now feel like I can start to relax.

  10. Thursday, July 30

    by , July 30th, 2009 at 05:58 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Dragged myself to the gym to do RC exercises today. Didn't want to leave it until the evening for fear of taper induced sloth and ennui.

    RC:

    external and internal rotators on cable machine, 10 x 3 x 15, each arm
    prone scapular scrunches, 2 x 25
    seated straight arm dips, 2 x 25
    3 point arm extensions, 3 x 2 x 15
    some other damn exercise I don't know the name of but has a chopping motion

    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    Warm up:

    400 swim
    200 kick
    150 fly drills

    8 x 25 UW shooters on back

    50 EZ

    Speed work:

    5 x (25 easy speed fly + 25 EZ)

    50 EZ

    1 x 50 backstroke AFAP w/fins
    went 24ish

    100 EZ

    4 x (25 AFAP free + 50 EZ)

    50 EZ

    1 x 100 backstroke AFAP w/fins
    went 53.5-54ish. my fastest in practice.

    100 EZ

    Total: 2000

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

    Finally! A break from the frenzy of my life is upon me. Mr. Fort is leaving tomorrow am for a family thing in Syracuse NY. He is taking Fort Son (bribed with a trip to Cornell to meet the crew coach) and Lil lil Fort. I have Mini for All Stars on Saturday, but then she is leaving for a week at the beach with some family friends that night. I forsee being able to sit on my ass and eat bon bons.

    Lost my sleep mojo some last night. Little one woke up at 3:30 am and I had trouble falling back to sleep. Still hopeful for max sleep tonight.

    BTW, I did faithfully take melatonin for 4+ months like Dr. Miller advised. It did not do one damn thing for me! As is typical for me, I've tried many many things to get a good night sleep. Gawd, getting old sucks!

    Starting to get excited for Nats. Need to shift into "straight vicious" mode according to my son.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! Really looking forward to my evilstroke leg on the mixed medley relay too. hahaha. Also looking forward to resuming running as my bod feels like a blob of gelatinous goo without it. Just another reason for full body suits!

  13. Thursday 7/30 - I hope my muscles recover soon

    by , July 30th, 2009 at 07:40 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    My muscles are still hurting some and I am going for a deep tissue massage today. My last one before Nat's. I know it takes me 3 days to flush out all the junk from my muscles when I do this so this is just about right.

    I tried to push alittle but just couldn't move it seems. Trust your taper, trust your taper, trust your taper....

    5x200 @ 4:00 Free not particularly fast holding about 3:30's

    500 Free kick w/fins every 3rd 50 moderate
    5x100 @ :10R Back drills w/fins

    5x100 @ 2:00 Free 30 meter sprints from 15 meter mark into and out of turn rest easy, held 1:46's did not feel strong here
    5x100 @ 2:30 very relaxed alt 50Free/50Back

    Total 3000 meters

    The massage was great today, just what I needed. Tonight we did about 1000 yards of drill work. Nothing hard just light easy drilling

  14. A little Wednesday workout

    by , July 30th, 2009 at 01:46 AM (Swim like an Orca, but faster !)
    Aquasol Masters
    Coach Janine


    Warm up - 350 mostly FR.


    Pace

    10x50 FR on 1:00 (held :34, some :32/:33)
    Kick
    Kick Wars 5x ( Two swimmers kick toward each other with boards held like shields, then collide and try to move your opponent backwards, stopping after 1 minute from beginning)
    Pyramid
    50 FR
    100 FR
    200 FR
    200 BK
    100 BK
    50 BK (did really slow on these, had to move over so Dwight and Dr. Bob could pass)
    Drill
    3x50 FR sculling with head up.


    100 W/D


    2125 SCY



    There has been a lot of newcomers (yea!) but it slows the coach down from keeping us busy. I'm fortunate that Dwayne and Dr. Bob have been getting faster, its starting to get me out of my slump.

  15. Aquatic Park

    clare and i have been spending a little time at the south end rowing club http://www.south-end.org/ for some cold water swimming during this heatwave...btw, the air temp here in SF has been in the 50's with a good helping of wind and fog.

    the water temp has been in the mid to high 50's which is quite the shocker when the water back home is nearly 20 degrees warmer. i planned to do a 2 hour swim my first day out here, but lasted only 45 minutes. day 2: 60 minutes. tomorrow i'm shooting for 90 minutes, but won't get started until 6 PM.

    so far it looks like i might be doing an alcatraz swim on friday, the golden gate on saturday http://www.goldengateswim.com/ and the cruz cruise on sunday http://cruzswim.org/MeetSheets/2%20M...zCruise.09.pdf

    i'm hoping to get my 4 hour 2010 MIMS qualifying swim over early.... we'll see.

  16. Sleep is F'in Awesome!, Wednesday, July 29

    by , July 29th, 2009 at 05:33 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    Did a workout that I did about a week before Auburn.

    Warm up:

    400 swim
    150 kick
    150 fly drills
    3 x 25 build
    25 EZ

    Speed work:

    5 x (25 easy speed fly + 25 EZ)
    Felt like I had slightly increased DPK & DPS on these.

    50 EZ

    1 x 50 back AFAP w/fins
    Went 24ish, my fastest practice time ever. But I did go past the 15 meter mark on the first 25.

    150 EZ

    1 x 50 dolphin kick on back AFAP
    Went 23ish, mistimed turn

    150 EZ

    4 x (25 AFAP free + 50 EZ)

    100 C/D

    Total: 1900

    ART

    30 minutes of ART for some body work. I bought a tube of traumeel. I've tried many topical creams before, and thought they were all ineffective. This one seems to work and penetrate into the shoulder capsule. Of course, it could just be the placebo effect too, as it is with so many things ...

    My chiro noticed I was congested, and my throat has been swollen too. Apparently, there is some mold spore going crazy at the moment. That would certainly explain my reaction as I'm allergic to mold too.

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

    Didn't feel too bad in the water today. Didn't feel too sluggish from the deep tissue. And didn't have that "feel like crap" taper feeling yet. I'm wondering if this has been countered somewhat by the increased/better sleep? Just had my 3rd night in a row of 8 hours of sleep. Very odd stuff. I don't even have the taper bitchies yet! On this note, my doc told me to stop taking B complex vitamins, as that can contribute to insomnia.

    I'm thinking of lending my kid my speed suit for All Stars this weekend. After Chris' and Hulk's suit thefts, I'm a little leery of this though ... I do know many swimmers will be clad in B70s/LZRs. My B70 has also seen some use now. If the suits are legal until May 2010 or so, I may get a new B70 at Nats.

  20. 7-29-2009 Swim

    by , July 29th, 2009 at 08:16 AM (TJ's Blog of Slow Swimming!)
    I am almost embarrassed to put this one down, but I may as well record my laziness as well as my motivated practices!

    I swam 2200 meters today in 45 minutes.
    I swam a 400 free w/u
    3 times through without stopping
    50 back
    150 free
    50 2-1-2 fly
    150 free
    50 breast
    150 free.

    I certainly didn't set the pool on fire with pace or anything, but I kept my heartrate up with the occasional spikes (induced by back and fly) for 45 minutes.
    Despite my lack of swimming lately, my backstroke is feeling stronger and I think I have to up my intervals to 100s!
