  1. 7/7/18 Workout

    by , July 7th, 2018 at 09:51 PM (Swimming Through Jello)
    Saturday, 7/7/2018 CrossFit Workout

    Warmup - plyos, stretching, run

    Conditioning - In teams of 3, 30 minute cap
    3x{30 TTB, 30 bar facing burpees, 30 power snatch 75#}
    150 cal assault bike
    2x{30 TTB, 30 bar facing burpees, 30 power snatch 95#}
    150 cal assault bike
    1x{30 TTB, 30 bar facing burpees, 30 power snatch 115#}

    Only got through 30 cal bike in the time cap. I wanted to finish but the other guys in the team didn't. Not a whole ton of work for the only thing today really...

    Lindbergh pool supposed to open up next week, hopefully that holds to schedule. I want to swim at least 3 days next week before my little meet next Saturday and it's easier to do that when I get up at 4:35 and drive 5 minutes to swim than 4:10 and drive 25 minutes... still will have to go to Crestview at least once since the meet is LCM and Lindbergh is SCY.

  2. Saturday 7/7/18

    AM LCM @ UALR "Mary Grace Tucker Memorial Invitational Day #2"

    600 swim (200 FR/100 BK)
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: k/dr
    even: dr/sw

    2x100 @ 1:30 PINK/RED
    4x25 @ :35 V.S.
    100 EZ

    100 FR - 58.80 - A good race, but not a great race. I spun my wheels too much on the opening 50, and I switched to breathing every 4th stroke too early on the second 50. I also got caught up in what the swimmer next to me was doing instead of swimming my own race.

    200 BK - 2:39.33 (1:16.57/1:22.76) - This was my throw-away event. I just wanted to see what I could go in a race I don't normally swim, while being shaved and tapered. Man do I not like backstroke!

    Add in about 1400 assorted warm up and warm-down during the course of the meet.

    Total: 3000
  3. Friday 7/6/18

    PM LCM @ UALR "Mary Grace Tucker Memorial Invitational Day #1"

    400 swim
    6x50 @ :10 rest
    odd: k/dr
    even: dr/sw
    3x100 @ 1:30 @ 800 PACE
    100 EZ

    800 FR - 9:31.49 (1:05.89/1:10.79/1:11.39/1:12.32/1:11.80/1:12.55/1:13.90/1:12.85) - It was a little worrisome when I watched the boys on my left and right go taking off over the first 100 meters. I told myself to put some blinders on and just did my own thing, and when I flipped at the 350, I finally saw them...passing the flags going into the wall while I was going the other way! I was told I looked strong through the whole race. I was happy with an opening 400 of 4:40.39, I just wish I could have been back a little faster than 4:51.1. On the other hand, both those splits are faster than I went I have been all season in the 400, so that bodes well for Sunday's event!

    I had two 500 meter warm ups during the course of the meet and a 400 warm down at the end as well.

    Total: 3200

    SHOUT OUT: Doug Martin, who wasn’t too out of breath after his 50 FR to come time for me in the 800.
