  1. Week 30 - Sunday (Taper week 3)

    by , May 5th, 2013 at 02:28 PM (After a long rest)
    I showed up again at the pool ahead of the second day of the B/C meet and ended up doing my meet warmup. This week will be fun since yardage falls away at the beginning of the week and then it's race time starting on Thursday.

    400 free
    8x50 alternating catchup and finger drag drill on 45
    4x100 fast 3 strokes off each wall
    50 easy
    4x50 fast 12.5 on each 50
    150 easy

    Total 1600

    I felt sluggish on the first 400 but by the end of the warmup felt pretty good. Hopefully a sign of things to come this week.

    1000 WFSP
    • 15:10

    600 drill (various)

    9 x 25 @ 1:30 DFS hypoxic free
    6 x 25 @ 1:00 free, pushed, WF
    • first 4 - 5 strokes fast then easy to wall

    20 x 25 @ :30 free, pushed, WFSP
    • first 4 - 5 strokes fast then easy to wall

    200 WFSP
    • various drills (i.e, scull, human paddle, holding agility paddles without thumb support)

    Holding agility paddles with the thumbs out of the supports identifies stroke problems even more. Left paddle kept slipping at end of stroke and discovered my hand does not slip out of water to recover as efficient as the right.
