Had a very small group at the Nat this morning -only three of us. Brooke is in the rehab hospital now, but will not be back for a while. Swam with Bob and Carmen.
The workout was a different type of workout from what I am used to - nothing over 100. Guess that is what a true speed workout is like - combination of easy/hard swimming over short distances.
3x100 Free on 1:30
3x100 Free on 1:30
Two times thru -
16x25 on :30 (Hard/Easy, Easy/Hard, Easy/Easy, Hard/Hard)
8x50 w/paddles Hard on 1:00 Free/Back
Six times thru -
50 Drill on 1:30
100 IM on 1:30 (did 1:30 -1:32)
The 100 IM's were supposed to be FAST - but any IM for me is good. The 1:30-1:32 was better than the 1:35's I was doing with Peter a week ago. After 3600 yards, the others were getting out of the pool and I didn't want to be the only one swimming, so I got out, too.
I got my spot all reserved at the pool (got my chair set down at least), and that's the most important thing. It's gonna be crazy as hell at the pool this weekend, and every chance I can get, I'm gonna vacate the place for my house.
In other good news, my 15 year old teammate Jared swam a couple events today at the Husky Invitational in Federal Way, WA today, one of which was the 500 Free. He went a new PB of 4:52.77, dropping almost 10 seconds. Out in a 54mid, held 29mids the rest of the way. Awesome. Now I just need to follow suit.
1000 Free warmup, stretch it out
1000 Kick w/ fins and board (I did about 500 or so with board only, NO FINS, really really easy)
1000 Pull - did 500 Free, then switched to 75 Free/25 Front SCull the rest of the 2nd 500
12 x 50 IMOrder (3 of each) @ 1:15
-- Drill, then Build, then Sprint by 50s
felt really good here, went fast!
4 x Dive 25s from the blocks that were just set up. Kids got to practice their shallow water dives into the 4'3" of water.
12 x 25 turns 25s from the middle of the pool, 6 @ each end.
~3400 Yards (maybe)
I took a look at the heat sheet on the wall at the pool. Not a lot of fast folks, but I'll have a good run for my money with 3 or 4 boys from the Moses Lake team. I'm the top seeds in the 100 & 200 Breast, & 200 Fly, with 2nd-4th in my other events, aside from the stupid 50 Free which I'm 6th.
It will be a fun meet, and I'm ready to race.
