  1. I swam today, but it wasn't very interesting

    by , December 1st, 2011 at 03:48 PM (Random Nonsense)
    Lifetime Solo SCM

    Warm up
    - 400 free
    - 200 back
    - 200 kick w/board
    Main Set
    - 10x50 free odd DPS/even Fast
    - 10x50 back odd DPS/even Fast
    Cool down
    - 3x100 ez

    The goal of the 50s was to take the stroke count from the DPS 50 and try to match it on the Fast. Started out 15/18 and finished 15/16 on the frees (DPS/Fast) and was going 35-37 on the fasts. The 16th stroke was really necessary to keep the speed up into the turn and finish.

    Sadly, yesterday I was gung-ho to do some hard sprinting. That feeling wore off while sleeping.

  3. Getting Better... I Think

    by , December 1st, 2011 at 01:49 PM (Year Three: The Road Back)
    When I hit the water this morning, my shoulder actually felt pretty good. Too good, in fact, because I ended up pushing it a little more than I should have on the last 2 75s (did :57s), but my shoulder was aching after that. Fortunately, up next was a kick set. Unfortunately, the last 9 Pulls turned into Kicks to be on the safer side. Here's what I did:


    300 Warm-Up
    10 x 50 Drill / Swim on 1:00
    10 x 75 Free on 2:00 GOAL SET (held :57 - 1:00)
    1 x 50 Free Easy on 2:00
    1 x 300 Kick on 6:00 w/ fins
    6 x 50 Kick on 1:10 w/o fins
    2 x 50 Pull on :55 (shoulder went bad here)
    9 x 50 Kick on :55
    100 Cool-Down
    Total Yards - 2850


    A shorter day, but I think I need to ease back into full swimming - and fast swimming - one stroke at a time. A shorter day isn't going to kill me and a longer / faster day at this point just might. One step at a time, right?


    Enjoy your swims today and I'll check in tomorrow.

  4. Impatience

    Iíve been struggling all week with a nasty cold. I wasnít feeling great this morning, but decided that five days out of the water was surely enough, so I headed over to TNYA workout. My body disagreed with this reasoning, and proved once again that it really is the boss of me. Hereís how it went:

    500 scy warmup [lots of coughing breaks]

    400 @ 6:20
    300 @ 4:30
    200 @ 2:50
    100 @ 1:20
    [I sat out the 200 to do my asthma inhaler and give it a few minutes to kick in. I hardly ever have trouble with my asthma, except when I get a cold.]

    6 x 75, 2x through
    75 FL @ 1:25
    50 FL / 25 FR @ 1:20
    75 BK @ 1:25
    50 BK / 25 FR @ 1:20
    75 BR @ 1:25
    50 BR / 25 FR @ 1:20
    [I made it 2/3 of the way through the second round before giving up and getting outóI was just having too much trouble with my breathing today. Sometimes itís better to admit defeat, and live to swim another day. Just hope that day is tomorrow . . .]

  6. 12.1.11 - feeling better again

    by , December 1st, 2011 at 08:52 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave, Dave and Roger. All had our own lanes. Feeling much better today. I was able to stomach more food yesterday. That seems to make a difference. Power and endurance are back. Figured they would be but once it goes away for a couple days - no matter the reason - I always start doubting myself.

    SCY

    400 Warm up

    4 Times through
    * 50 Stroke - :50 (1st iteration free)
    * 50 Stroke - :50 (1st & 2nd iteration free)
    * 50 Stroke - :50 (1st, 2nd, 3rd iteration free)
    * 50 Kick - :50
    Break

    4 Times through (For each 100, pick 4 from Fly, Bk, Br, Fr, IM):
    * 100 - 1:30
    * 100 - 1:25
    * 100 - 1:20
    * 100 - 1:15
    On the first iteration, I went Br (1:25), Bk (1:25), IM (1:23 - ut oh....), Fr - 1:15. Sensing I was going to get behind quickly, I switched to Bk, IM, Fr, Fr. That helped and eventually I got back on pace.
    100 Easy

    7 Times through
    * 75 Pull hard - :50 (:45-:48)
    * 25 Pull easy - :40
    * 25 Kick hard - 1:05 (1:00-1:03)
    * 25 Kick easy - :45

    100 Cool down

  7. no running water at the pool

    by , December 1st, 2011 at 08:05 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    There are a water main break right outside the building and the parking lot was flooded. Got in the building and they said we could still swim but there was no running water. So no toilets or showers!

    Did an easy day since I did not want to tempt fate by drinking water. My body also needs a little rest.

    500 free
    500 free kick w/fins every 3rd lap fly kick
    5x100 free alt 25 kick/25 swim w/snorkle
    5x100@2:00 fly w/fins 25 rt arm/25 lt arm/25 kick/25 swim w/fins

  8. Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011 5:00am & 5:00pm

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 10:27 PM (Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!)
    A.M. Workout - we are finally able to get back into the H.S. pool now since the drowning that occurred about 2 weeks ago. We have a new set of rules that must be followed that were set by the school district. 1. Must have a certified lifeguard on deck (not in the water), and 2. Must have a 2nd person ON DECK that is CPR/First Aid trained in case the lifeguard has to go into action.
    Well, we have 1 lifeguard on the team, and he's volunteering his duty for now, and we're currently in the process of getting more trained so that we may rotate people throughout the days so that everyone can swim also.
    It's a good idea, but I don't see anyone who's going to show up from the school board to "police" the situation either, but we'll still follow the rules just in case. We don't want to chance loosing our swimming opportunity either.

    Warmup:
    200 Free
    100 Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull

    4 x 300 @ 3:40 (2 swim went 3:25s, 2 pull went 3:18/3:15)

    1 x 300 IM Drill

    12 x 100 Free @ 1:30 (held 1:05s, last one 1:02) swam this with a group

    100 EZ

    ----------------
    3300 Yards

    ============================

    P.M. Workout - at the Y, while my kids were in lessons again. This was kind of hectic. We had 3 per lane for the 1st half hour, then 4 per lane the 2nd half hour. Me and another faster guy were trying to manipulate the lanes better so that the fastest 4 people were in one lane, and the slower 4 in the other lane. Some people seemed to take offense to this, but it worked out "better" (kind of).

    Warmup:
    200 Free
    200 Kick w/ board
    200 Free

    8 x 50 Free @ :45 (:33-:34s)

    10 x 50 Free @ :40 (held :32-:33s)

    Got out for a few to get my son changed from lessons.

    100 Free (went 1:01) another guy was doing a 100 Fast, so I joined him after 10 minutes of being out of the water.

    5 x 100 Kick w/ board @ 1:50 (went 1:28-1:35s)

    8 x 25 Fly Fast @ :30 (went :15s)

    100 EZ

    ----------------------
    2400 Yards

    5700 Yards for the day

    ============================

    GTD miles by month:
    Jan. - 42.70
    Feb. - 42.84
    Mar. - 44.64
    Apr. - 32.36 ** This is where I tapered wayyyy too much for USMS Nats
    May - 43.80
    Jun. - 33.19 - summer work schedule
    Jul. - 21.37 - summer work schedule
    Aug. - 32.86 - summer work schedule
    Sep. - 46.83
    Oct. - 61.98 - after getting creamed by PWB and Sean Justice in person at the end of Sept., I determined to get better and doubles have been paying off!
    Nov. - 61.94 - Ditto!

    I'm on track for the 500 Miles goal that I have set. Only need about 36 miles in December to get it done.

  11. Wed., Nov. 30

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 04:52 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    I got to the pool this afternoon and it was closed! Argh! I had just enough time to get to my gym pool, but the temp was 87. That pretty much prohibits doing anything useful. So I just did a mostly stretch out swim with a few bursts.

    Swim/SCM/Solo:

    400 various

    10 x 50 fly drills
    caterpillar @ 1:15
    single arm @ 1:00

    10 x 25 shooters w/fins on belly

    50 dolphin dive

    10 x 25 @ 1:00
    odds = burst dolphin kick on belly
    evens = free no breather

    50 dolphin dive

    10 x 50 cruise w/fins @ 1:00
    odds = back
    evens = back easy

    50 EZ

    Total: 2050 meters


    Yoga/Stretching, 30 minutes

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

    I was planning on getting a new suit for NE Champs, but I think I'll just wear an old Speedo. Instead, I plan to pre-order the new Speedo FS3. http://www.speedousa.com/home/index.jsp. The goggles do look crazy, but I'm certainly prepared to try them.

  12. Short sprint Wednesday

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 03:39 PM (Chowmi's Blog)
    SCM, Baylor Fitness Center
    Jim Montgomery coached

    I modified most things, to stay short and not get too tired out.

    400 warm up

    4 x 150 pull (no way!)
    ==>75 strong descend, easy 25 back

    4 x 125 kick (hmm, ok!)
    50 fast 25 easy 50 fast
    ==> I did these.

    4 x 100 on 1:30 swim (uh, no.)
    ==>4x 50's drilling - fly kick freestyle

    4 x 75 pull on 1:05 (yuck. no)
    ==>4 x 25 variables

    4 x 50 swim (no)
    4 x 25 sprint (no, in hottub by then, first to the showers!)
    ==>easy 50 and got out.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    Not much commentary about it. Pretty happy with speed but still overall tired and tight. A few more days rest and then the meet. I think I will sit in the hallway behind the spectator bleachers this year. It's too cold, crowded, and damp on deck at this meet. I'm going to warm up at Baylor first, so I don't need to be on deck until right before I swim my 50 free.

  13. Workout 11/30/11

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 01:16 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Solo at Rec (scy)

    w/u:
    200 FR/200 BK
    500 Pull with Buoy Noah's Ark (2 by 2, DPS/Fast, 25 -> 100) - 75's did BK
    100 IM drill

    6 x 75 kick (last lap fast) on 1:25
    - FR/BK/SDK, repeat

    3 times through:
    Start at the :60
    - 100 FR (last lap fast) on 1:15
    - 100 FR (3rd lap fast) on 1:15
    - 100 FR (last lap fast) - make 1:15,
    - q-break til top, then:
    - 100 BK on 1:30
    - 100 IM on 1:30
    - 50 drill EZ

    500 Noah's Ark swim with Paddles

    100 EZ and out

    (3700 total, 70 min)
    ----------

    I had a nice swim at lunchtime today. I gave a name, "Noah's Ark," to that set that I have been doing since no one else let me know if it has a name. I figured I'd go with the 2 x 2 theme. Maybe it'l stick.

    In hindsight, I probably should have put the kicks after the main set, as my legs were tired. For the FR, I landed around 1:08 on the first set, 1:11 on the second, and 1:14 on the third. I was able to hit 1:17 for the backs, and the IM's came in just under 1:20. Fun little set.

    After that, I was not feeling great but figured I'd keep swimming and strapped on my paddles. I might not play to much more with them until after the BU meet as I tweaked my shoulders a few time (well, I was splitting the lane near the wall in lane 1 and was trying to avoid hitting said wall). Best to just leave them alone in case I should do some serious harm before the swim.

    I went into work for a couple of hours today to help out (our second tech was not there and we are at the first of the month rush). Now to figure out something for this evening. Oh, earlier today an appraiser came to the house - I am refinancing the mortgage, as I have about 21 yrs left on a 30 yr note @ 5.875%. I am locked in @ 3.685% for 15 years - will save a ton on interest (literally), and my monthly payment only goes up $48. Now I can better rationalize entry fees for my swims! haha

  15. The "Watch Your Shoulder" Swim

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 10:35 AM (Year Three: The Road Back)
    After yesterday's fairly severe shoulder pain (I basically had my arm hanging by my side all day long), I was a little hesitant to get in the water today, but told myself I would stop and kick whenever I started to feel any shoulder twinges at all. I actually listened to my body, adjusted my stroke somewhat, didn't push my stroke for speed, and basically hung on. It went pretty well and swam farther than I thought I would. The only set below written as a kick set was the 6x50 Kick on 1:10 without fins. The other kicks were supposed to be freestyle, but I elected to kick and give my shoulder a break. Here's what I did:

    250 Warm-Up
    2 sets:

    - 2 x 50 Fist Drill on 1:00
    - 4 x 50 Free on :50
    - 2 x 50 Fist Drill on 1:00
    - 4 x 50 Free on 1:00, 1>4
    2 x 50 Kick on 1:00
    4 x 50 Kick on :50
    1 x 50 Free Easy on 1:00
    1 x 50 Kick ALL OUT on 2:00 (did :30 w/ fins)

    1 x 50 Free Easy on 1:00
    6 x 50 Kick on 1:10 (w/o fins)
    6 x 100 Pull on 1:40
    2 x 100 Kick on 1:40
    100 Cool-Down
    Total Yards - 3100

    All in all, not a bad day in the water. And.... I came home and really stretched out well. Hopefully tomorrow will be another improvement.

    And... thankfully, the snow last night stayed to our north... no shoveling was necessary!

    Enjoy your swims today!

  17. Aerobic turkey burner

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 10:25 AM (Random Nonsense)
    and after that there are plenty of wine calories to burn off. Lots of wine yoga this weekend.

    I have not swam since 18x100s on 1:20 day (Friday). Over the holiday I was getting to bed 2-3 hours later than normal and getting up about 90 minutes later which didn't seem like a big deal until the 4am alarm went off Monday.

    No Josh today, Marge picked a lane well away from mine so a fairly new guy swam with me. I think he will be fast when he gets back in shape and I base this on the fact he was dumb enough to do fly on the stroke parts of todays workout.

    Team workout SCY swam solo (no one else on my intervals)

    Warm up
    - 200 swim
    - 200 kick w/fins
    - 200 swim
    Transition*
    - 4x75 3rd 25 stroke
    - 4x100 3rd 25 stroke
    - 4x25 3rd 25 stroke
    Main Set
    - 4x200 on 2:30
    - 2x400 on 5:00
    - qbreak for equipment (exactly 60 seconds)
    - 800 pull w/ paddles at buoy (went 9:25)
    -- open turned at the 200s to check pace
    Cool Down
    - 4x50 ez

    I thought about changing the 800 to 8x100 on 1:10, but I don't think it would have happened today. My right shoulder was a little loose today (like the arm wasn't tightly joined to the body) and my stroke after 4 days out required a little more thought.

    Today was a workout experiment, where there was a longer alternative (2x200, 1x400, or what I did) to the main set. I think that worked out better than the typical bonus set where it is a separate main set that rarely has anything to do with the first main set.

    * Has anyone else noticed that the "transition" set is almost always a misnomer?

  18. 11.30.11 - Solo today

    by , November 30th, 2011 at 09:20 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam alone. No idea where the rest of the team was. Don't much like swimming alone but our workouts are already pre-made so at least I had something to challenge me. Problem is that it is so easy to modify the intervals and with me not feeling my best right now, it was hard not to. I resisted temptation and only modified the no-breather fly.

    SCY

    400 Warm up

    6 x 100 - 1:30 2 x Free, 2 x IM, 2 x stroke (back)
    4 Times through
    * 75 Pull - 1:00
    * 25 Fly - :30 (No breather... right! Treated these as recovery)
    * 200 IM - 3:00
    * 25 Fly - :30 (No breather - see above)
    * 75 Pull - 1:00
    100 Easy

    Missed the first stroke on 1:30 send off so I was already 5 seconds in the hole when I started the 1st iteration. Caught up by the end. Last iteration, I couldn't make the 200 IM on 3:00. Just couldn't find any endurance today. I did catch up on the pull though.

    800 IM Kick (15:25) Mostly painful. Kicked through all sorts of nasty cramps. Despite the pain, this was a good set for me. I don't do a lot of kick other than beast stroke so I had lots of time to focus on doing things better.
    1:00 break
    16 Times through
    * 25 Easy Free - :30
    * 25 Hard stroke - :20

    200 Cool down

    Warmup:

    200 Free
    100 Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull
    200 IM Drill
    100 Kick w/ board
    200 Free Pull

    10 x 50 Free @ :40 (went :31/:32s)
    KNelson did this in the morning, though his set was 30 of them. I don't think I could've held these for very much longer at that pace either. Kinda tough to keep yourself moving with so much stop - go - stop - go.

    6 x 75 Kick w/ board @ 1:20
    (went 1:10-1:12 on first 3, 1:09, 1:08, 1:06 on last 3)
    1 x 50 Kick AFAP w/ board (went :42)

    100 Free to relax my legs from the fast kicking
    6 x 150 100 Free/50 Back @ 2:15 - working on doing 3-4 SDKs on the backstroke after being "tired" from the first 100 - kind of a prep for 400IMs
    (went 1:42-1:47s) started out slower and descended them...quite happy because my backstroke felt better than normal.

    4 x 250 Free Pull @ 3:00 (went 2:45s)

    1 x 100 IM - cramped up on the backstroke...I was originally planning to do 10 of them, but once you start cramping, it's all over.

    --------------------------
    4100 Yards

    ============================

    Upcoming Meets:
    Dec. 3-4 - USA-S Meet across the river at the YMCA pool I finally don't have to travel! YES!!
    Swimming almost everything (5 events a day) 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 Free, 100, 200 Fly, 100 Back, 100 Breast, & 200 IM

    Dec. 10 - COMA SCM Pentathalon/Brute Squad Meet - I'm doing the distance pentathalon events:
    200 Fly, 200 Back, 200 Breast, 200 Free, 400 IM, in that order.
    I'm really happy the the 200 Fly is first, cause I'm planning to rock it! Other than that, my only other plan is to go for the 400IM Zone record as well. We'll see how much effort I put into the other 3 events. This is my final hurrah for the meter season in my 30-34 age group, so I'm going "all in" on this one.
    I'll also be there on Sunday morning to attend a COMA masters practice with the team. Should be fun times.
