  2. Hot water at the Y

    by , September 6th, 2010 at 12:23 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    It was 87 in the pool and much too hot for a quality workout. So I modified the workout to have more rest.

    6x100@1:40 Free
    5x50@1:00 Fly w/fins
    1 minute rest
    5x50@1:00 Fly w/fins
    1 minute rest
    5x50@:1:00 Fly w/fins kick on back
    1 minute rest
    5x50@1:00 Fly w/fins
    1 minute rest
    5x50@1:00 Fly w/fins
    1 minute rest
    5x50@:1:00 Fly w/fins kick on back
    12x25@1:00 Fly w/paddles & fins
    12x25@1:00 Back w/fins
    10x50@1:00 Free
    200 Free

    Total 3400 yards

    I am looking forward to the cool waters at the aquatic center tomorrow. I really feel for the kids who have to swim in the hot water.

    Too bad the Y can't turn the temperature down and save themselves money on the electricity and chemicals they have to use due to the hot water temps. A good compromise would be 84 which is over what is recommended for swimmers but still tolerable.

    For those with arthritis they can always use the hot tub for the hot water.

  3. Sunday Swim, Sept. 5

    by , September 6th, 2010 at 10:47 AM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/SCY/ Team:

    Warm up:

    400 swim
    400 reverse IM kick
    200 pull
    200 IM drill

    Main Sets:

    8 x 75 IM switch @ 1:15
    #4 & #8 FAST

    50 EZ

    3 x 300 w/fins @ :30 RI
    done 100 stroke, 100 kick, 100 kick
    minimum of 6 SDK each length

    Normally, I'm happy to see a set like this. But yesterday, not so much, as I had done plenty of SDK work in the days before. And 6 SDK with fins did not prove that easy. I did them 100 back + 200 backstroke kick.

    50 EZ

    6 x 75 @ 1:50

    odds = 25 UW dolphin + 25 Nemo drill + 25 fast fly
    evens = 25 UW flutter + 25 tricep drill + 25 fast free

    Plenty of rest on these so that the 25s could be very fast.

    50 EZ

    8 x 50 kick @ 1:05
    25 AFAP dolphin kick + 25 EZ

    Everyone did these on different intervals. Barb and I decided to do them on 1:05 together.

    200 EZ

    Total: 3900

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

    Commentary:

    Loved this more speed and stroke oriented workout after Saturday's aerobic emphasis. I was worried I'd feel gassed, but I hung in there decently. That said, I am really really glad I'm having a day of rest today. Definitely need it. Then back to the gym on Tuesday.

  4. Saturday, Sept. 4

    by , September 4th, 2010 at 06:44 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    I went to my first Saturday team practice in, well, maybe ever. Saturday is typically D day (though now our practices are 1.5 instead of 2 hours) and they used to be early. Instead, I happily cruised in at 10:15 after dropping Mini off at volleyball practice. I feel like I'm getting some endurance back. Just some, but some is better than none as my date with 1.2 miles looms. I have reminded my tri relay mates that I am not in the same shape I was last year.

    Swim/SCY/Team:

    Warm up:

    2 x through

    200 swim
    100 kick
    100 pull
    100 IM drill

    This may also be the first ever time I've done the assigned warm up.

    Main Set:

    3 x through:

    2 x 250 pull @ 3:30
    2 x 150 K/S/K w/fins @ 2:30
    (I did them all kick and had a ton of rest, but I didn't mind because I wanted to descend the 50s well.)
    3 x 50 stroke descend @ 1:00
    (I left my fins on for these)

    On the sets of 50s, I went back (:29, :27, :25), breast (:36, :33, :31) and back (:30, :28, :25 high)

    200 EZ

    Total: 4050

    Extra set: 8 x 100 backstroke kick w/fins @ 1:30

    Since that only took us about 65 minutes, I did an extra set. Same set as yesterday, 8 x 100 backstroke kick. But this time I did it with fins @ 1:30 with 8/7/7/6 SDKs (which is probably fairly equivalent to the 10 SDKs I took yesterday). I cramped a bit, but was really happy I kicked reasonably fast and long after all that aerobic work.

    Went: 1:03, 1:03, 1:03, 1:03, 1:02, 1:02, 1:01, 1:00.

    100 EZ

    Total: 4950/1900 kicking

    15 minutes in hottub


    Drylands:

    20 handstands
    10 cartwheels
    3 walkovers

    15 minutes of stretching

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

    Commentary:

    I felt so much better today when I woke up than yesterday. I felt like I was dragging myself through yesterday's workout. Plus, it was so nice to swim in a deep cool pool. I always swim faster at Mason, it seems, than at our Rec Center pools where the temp hovers at 83-84.

    Mr. Fort got out his bike after I got home, and he's been gone for almost 4 hours ... And since he did the Reston Century ride, he seems to be on their email list. He recommended I do this tomorrow: http://www.restontriathlon.org/tri/. But unlike Geek, I just can't rise at the jimmy jack crack of dawn.

    I'm tentatively planning on going to my team practice tomorrow instead. Sunday is typically my favorite day as it's stroke and sprint oriented. I could use that after today.

    This week's totals:

    swim, 5x, 18,350 yards
    drylands, 4x
    yoga, 1x

    I have full on fall allergy symptoms and I'm hoping it's due to ragweed and such and not my new kitty (with whom I'm unreasonably besotted).

  5. Another Saturday with the girls

    by , September 4th, 2010 at 06:11 PM (Mixing it up this year)
    I once again tried to get 3000 yards in before they arrived and the pool was HOT! I would say atleast 85 which is too hot for me but I managed.

    500 Free easy
    500 Free kick w/fins
    10x200@3:00 Free w/paddles & bouy holding around 2:45ish or better last one 2:37

    500 Free broken with the girls then it was time to sink under water and watch their strokes and comment. They made changes and I continued to submerge to look at the results of their changes.

    Not too bad.

    3500 yards

  9. Taking Advice, Friday Sept. 3

    by , September 3rd, 2010 at 08:59 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Swim/SCY/Solo:

    Warm Up:

    700 various

    8 x 50 fly drills @ 1:00

    Pull Set:

    6 x 150 free w/paddles @ 2:20

    100 EZ

    Hypoxic Kick Set:

    8 x 100 backstroke kick, no fins @ 2:15
    SDKs = 10, 10, 10, 10 per 25
    (I really should have done 12 on the first 25. I don't think it would have made any difference, except perhaps causing me to go faster.)

    I knew it would be a tough set, as I cramped on the first one and then on #4 and #6. Took a few seconds extra rest on those. It wasn't a matter of dehydration; my legs were just fatigued from yesterday's double and the P90X plyos.

    I went 1:26, 1:24, 1:22, 1:22, 1:23, 1:22, 1:21-22, 1:20-21.

    I hadn't done a longer rep, longer hypoxic set in awhile, and this was tough, even kicking moderately after surfacing after the SDKs. On the last 3, I only managed 9 SDKs on the final 25. Still, I was happy I got this in, per Chris' suggestion. As he noted on his blog, this is much harder than stringing together 25 shooters.

    150 EZ

    Total: 3050

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

    Commentary:

    I was very very tired today (didn't sleep well either) and considered taking the day off. In retrospect, perhaps I should have and worked out both Sat & Sun. But I generally prefer to take a day off on the weekend to have more family time. So I "ate my veggies" today, as Speedo puts it and got this workout in. My only focus today was the kick set.


    Improving 100 fly/back pianos:

    Chris gave me some good tips for improving my 100 fly and back, particularly, the last 25, on his blog. They are:

    1. Do more lactate tolerance work -- reproduce the spike of lactate that occurs in a real race. Example: 3-5 100s AFAP 1x per week with plenty of rest. (Not sure I am willing to suffer enough to do this set 2x a week.)

    2. Do longer reps on kick sets and fast kicks beyond 50s.

    3. Do 75s and 100s hypoxic kick/shooters.

    4. Do broken 100s. Last year, Speedo and I did a Rich Abrahams set that I liked quite a bit, and I hope to do this one more often. I know it was broken at the 50 and 75, but I will have to look up the amount of rest he used. Chris suggests 10 seconds at either the 50 or 75.

    5. Do more 50s at 95% pace to reproduce the first controlled 50 of a 100 race.

    Workout Nutrition:

    On another note, I have been abysmal about workout and post-workout nutrition of late. I've just been drinking water at practice because gatorade and vitamin water don't agree with me. I ordered some Gu Brew (blueberry pomegranate flavor), which I like, and also decided to try e-fuel, a product from Crank. http://www.cranksports.com/. I'm told that e-fuel is much less sweet than Gatorade. Inevitably, gatorade gives me heartburn and an upset tummy and part of the reason is the sweetness, I think. Mr. Fort uses this product for his cycling. I also ordered some Proasis for post workout, which I've used before. http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/st...oductId=677439. Lately, the thought of eating food immediately after getting out of the pool has not been appealing.

    Lastly, my other Speedo endurance suit, in Mason colors, has also expired. So I ordered two new endurance suits on line, one Nike and one Speedo. Both all black. I'm much more boring than Swimsuit Addict. But a friend did send me a link to some great grab bag deals on some suits at Toad Hollow: http://www.toadhollowathletics.com/phpsupercart/

  11. Blasted, Thursday, Sept. 2

    by , September 2nd, 2010 at 11:05 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Drylands:

    Yoga Ball Warm Up:

    torso twister on yoga ball, 2 x 25
    med ball rotation on yoga ball, 2 x 25
    (on back, rotate med ball to the left, back up, to the right, repeat)
    iron monkey aka crunch-pass-leg drop, 1 x 25
    oblique yoga ball crunch, 1 x 25


    P90X Plyos, 50 minutes:

    Yikes, I hadn't done this routine since Jan. 10, which I can confirm thanks to the wonders of the blog sub-categories. It was, er, rather challenging, especially given that I was still sore today.

    The routine goes:

    warm up
    (4 exercises: 30s|30s|30s|1min) x 2
    waterbreak
    (4 exercises: 30s|30s|30s|1min) x 2
    waterbreak
    (4 exercises: 30s|30s|30s|1min) x 2
    waterbreak
    (4 exercises: 30s|30s|30s|1min) x 2
    waterbreak
    (4 exercises: 30s|30s|30s|1min) x 2

    The exercises are:

    1) Jump squat, run stance squat, airborne heisman (lateral leaping), swing kick

    2) Squat reach jump, run stance squat with direction switch, double airborne heisman, circle run

    3) Jump knee tuck. jumping lunge, leapfrog squat, twist combo

    4) Rock star hop, gap jump, squat jack, military march

    5) Run squat with 180 jump, lateral leapfrog, monster truck tire, hot foot

    JimRude hates the Mary Katherine jumping lunges. But I have the most trouble with the "run stance squat with direction switch." Brutal. Needless to say, I did not "pick up the pace" on anything. Well, I tried, valiantly, on the knee tuck jumps. I skipped the "bonus" sports round, as it seems irrelevant.


    Swim/SCY/Team:

    Warm up:

    400 swim
    300 kick
    200 IM drill
    100 scull

    Transition Sets:

    4 x 50 @ 1:00
    odds = kick, drill
    evens = build

    12 x 25 w/fins @ :40
    3 x fast UW, 1x EZ
    I went 10s on my back and 11s on my belly on the fast shooters. These seemed really hard tonight, despite only having to do 9 fast ones.

    50 EZ

    Main Set, Aerobic:

    8 x through:

    75, done as 25 drill + 50 swim (IM order, 2 of each stroke) @ 1:20
    25 dolphin kick @ :30
    100 free @ 1:30

    I felt pretty rough at the beginning of this set, but was pleasantly surprised that I was able to go faster as it progressed. I cruised the 75s and 25s and tried to work the 100 frees.

    50 EZ

    6 x 25 @ :30
    odds = fast
    evens = easy

    I didn't feel up to swimming, so did these flutter kick w/fins & board. Went high 11s.

    200 EZ

    Total: 3500

    There was an optional 2 x 300 pull. But I was beat and didn't feel like it would add anything, so I skipped it.

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

    Commentary:

    This was our first team workout of the 2010-11 season. Our team had no masters practices in August. So Cheryl was trying to start us off a bit easy. I feel like I've been working very hard since Zones, and can now say that every muscle in my body hurts. Today was my 4th dryland workout of the week if I count the P90X yoga/stretch day + bike day. Not sure what I should do tomorrow ... I may attempt to get myself to hot yoga, since I plan to attend team practices this weekend. I have already informed Mr. Fort that if he doesn't want me to drown in Deep Creek Lake, he will have to bike and run around my schedule.

    On the child front, my high schoolers have received their class schedules and there is shockingly little complaint. Fort Son, my scholastic minimalist, has 4 AP classes, so may be forced to study more. Mini spent the day in Ocean City playing beach volleyball with her team (thereby reducing my daily driving burden substantially). Lil Fort has her 4th grade open house tomorrow. She is happy to have the teacher she wanted and her best friend in her class. I am contemplating what I will be forced to sign up for ... After 15+ years of volunteering at numerous schools, I would really like to bury my head in the sand. Where's the emoticon for that? hehe

    My lane did 3 free 2 backstroke (I only did 4)

    My third turn on #4 I thought Streamline, Dolphin Kick
    My body responded, No get AIR instead.
    I should have swam back earlier.
    But then I wouldn't have had 3 good free swims.

    I was, quite predictably, sore today after two days in a row of vicious drylands. So I took it easy to reboot for tomorrow ...

    P90X Stretch, 60 minutes:

    http://www.videofitness.com/reviews/horton-p90x-str.php

    Although this DVD is called the "stretch" DVD, there are quite a few yoga moves in it. And there is some overlap with the P90X Yoga DVD.


    P90X Yoga, 30 minutes:

    I did the last 30 minutes of the yoga DVD after completing the stretch DVD. I skipped the first 60 minutes, which are mostly standing and balancing postures, as I was trying to soothe not strain the muscles. There is some good core work at the end of this DVD too.


    Bike, 30 minutes:

    Didn't feel like swimming today, the arms/back were too sore. So I did a 30 minutes recovery ride on the indoor cycle while watching a decidedly dreadful movie. My legs feel a lot better than the rest of my body.


    Commentary:

    Ahhhhhh, my muscles felt better after a nice stretch. Tomorrow, I will do drylands and go to my first team practice of the season at night.

    I am having a heat temper tantrum. My truck says the temp is 103 and it can't cool down fast enough. Since I spend so much time driving, this is most unpleasant. Poor Fort Son had to rise at 5:00 for a 6:00 cross country time trial to avoid the heat. Bring on September!

    I'm getting quite a nice collection of workouts now. http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=127613750980. I'll have to pick one out for Friday.

    And I'm putting this up for inspiration, while I mull over whether I will jump rope or not this season. http://www.projectswole.com/conditio...and-endurance/. Just reading the first practice -- jump for 30-60 minutes -- is a little frightening. Most likely, I will keep my tabata jump rope and do that 1x a week.

    Back in the car to travel to a volleyball game ...

    And a huge congrats to Dave Chaos Barra for swimming the English Channel in 14 hours, 27 minutes and 20 seconds to complete the rare triple of marathon swimming.
