  1. Thursday 6/13 - Mid Distance Set

    by , June 13th, 2019 at 10:46 AM (Middle Aged Distance)
    I went to Masters workout again this morning (so this is all lcm), another balmy 60 degree morning in Memphis. I liked this one today, I'm partial to mid distance workouts even though I'm a sprinter - I feel like I need the endurance to get through the fast races. I also find this type of speed work more enjoyable than repeat 50's or 100's. Last one of the week - my daughter has a 3 day swim meet starting tomorrow so I'll be taking the weekend off. See you all Monday!

    W/U (1000):

    600 - 100s/200p
    4x100 @ 1:30 - desc 1-4, get stroke count

    Main (2100):

    250 moderate @ 4:20
    1x200 Fast @ 3:00

    250 moderate @ 4:20
    2x200 desc 1-2 @ 3:05

    250 moderate @ 4:20
    3x200 best average @ 3:10

    150 easy

    *For this set, my coach wanted me to go about 2:40 or under (or desc to 2:40 on the middle set of 200's). I went: 1 - 2:34, 2 - 2:44, 3 - 2:35, 4 - 2:39, 5 -2:38, 6 -2:36. For the best average I was supposed to hold 2:40, so I was able to go a little under which was good.

    W/D (600):

    600 w/ fins - 50k, 50s, 50dr choice - For this I actually learned a new drill today (you can teach an old dog new tricks). It was 1 arm fly (left), 1 arm fly (right), breaststroke pull w/ fly kick, breaststroke pull w/ 4-5 free kicks.

    Nothing too special about this one yesterday, it was a good mix that kept my attention, with some stroke count work. This was a Masters workout that my coach sent.

    W/U (1500):

    500 swim
    400 RIMO - sc/k/d/s by 25
    300 pull
    200 IM k/d by 25
    100 kick

    Main (1800):

    3X{
    2x75 @ 1:30 - 50d/25build, 25b/50d
    1x150 @ 2:00 (50 stroke count, 50 sc-1, 50 sc-2)
    *My coach forgot to adjust for scm, so these are yards times. Add 5 or 10 sec for scm}

    2X{
    200 smooth @ 2:40 (again, adjust interval for meters)
    3x50 n/s + desc 1-3 @ 1:00
    4x25 golf score fast @ :30}

    100 easy

  3. 6/13/19 Workout

    by , June 13th, 2019 at 10:04 AM (Swimming Through Jello)
    College group coach and I had to put all the lane ropes in ourselves, so only got about 45 minutes in the (really cold!) water today. Some good work though despite that.
