  1. 9|29|17 Entire outdoor pool to self (26 yards)

    by , September 29th, 2017 at 07:36 PM (Blog)
    WARMUP
    572 ez FR (11 laps)

    STROKE
    4 x 208 BR on 5:00 (worked walls, pullouts, and breathing)

    KICK
    1 x 26 flutter kick from block afap

    LP
    3 x 104 FR [(broken at 26 yds on 0:30, 2 breaths ea length) plus a 50 ez with TYR snorkel having blue restrictor on] on 4:00

    WARMDOWN
    150 FR with fins and snorkel, very slow, with fast rotation/roll


    A shavedown before a workout is a dandy way to boost ones confidence.

    The TYR blue restrictor hole is about the size of a pea. Have to zip-tie it on because it keeps popping off. Assume it restrictive breathing might provide some benefit.

    Swim/SCY @ Pitt

    Warm up:


    400 various
    8 x 25 back kick @ :40
    50 EZ
    8 x 25 of something ... @ :40
    -- I did odds = fly @ 100 pace, evens = EZ
    50 EZ

    Main sets:

    12 x 50 IM order with good breakouts @ 1:00
    I did: 3 x (4 x 50)
    -- 25 fly @ 100 pace + 25 EZ back
    -- burst SDK + cruise
    -- back, 12.5 UW each length
    50 EZ

    6 rounds:
    2 x 50, odds = fast @ 1:15 (I did them @ 100 pace), evens = EZ
    -- I missed one fast 50 while looking for a nose clip that fell off my suit
    4 x 25, odds = EZ, evens = fast @ :30 (did a few AFAP, most 100 pace)
    100 EZ

    100 EZ

    8 x 25 breast @ 100 pace (13s)
    -- I hung around to do these with a lane mate who was doing fly
    -- was surprised that I could do this actually
    50 EZ

    Total: 3650


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


    My 100 pace seems a bit smoother and faster. One my 50 backstroke kicks was a 23 high. I didn't feel as exhausted after this workout, which is a good sign. I've done a few all out 25 kick and 25 breast efforts. But in general I'm a bit leery of going AFAP on free or back with my rapid fire turnover. Still easing into it ... Although I'm sure some of it is mental. It takes some mental effort to go truly all out and my brain is rusty.
