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


    I was super tired after yesterday's effort on the treadmill ... Wasn't sure I could do a meaningful swim today. But the legs held up reasonably well. I went straight to the pool from brunch with no workout in mind. I think I need to consult my old HIT workouts and arm myself with some decent sets to do, since I'm not laser focused on sprinting right now.

  13. Workout 04/28/18: morning

    by , April 28th, 2018 at 01:35 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    300 swim, 4 x 50 kick, 4 x 50 pull, 2 x 25 burst and cruise, 100 easy

    Sweedish 101's
    - start on the :05, swim a 50 and finish by the :60
    - next one leaves on the :06 (1:01 interval), still finish by the top
    - go until failure. Then drop down to either every other 50 or 25's.
    *Made it to 30, so 25 x 50 = 1250 yds*

    4 x 50 loosen
    -----------------
    [Masters/Rec/2300 yds/60 min]

    Full pool with Greg, Libby, Rebecca, Meg, Mary, Kevin, and Sean. This is a fun made set that I lifted from jbs and pull out a few times a year - it is fun to see how far you can make it. I mixed in kicking, stroke, pull, and finally free. I probably could have made a couple more, but opted to finish out there.

    by , April 27th, 2018 at 11:50 AM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    I was on the treadmill Monday and Tuesday. Went to Pitt on Wed night.

    Swim/SCY @ Pitt

    Warm up:

    400 various
    6 x 50, 15 shooter + 25 back kick w/fins @ :55
    8 x 25 @ :40, I did odds shooters, evens single arm fly

    Main sets:

    3 rounds (there were 4 rounds but I got our early)
    1 x 200 IM fast @ 3:00 (did 100 free w/paddles on Rd 1 & 3; back kick on Rd 2)
    1 x 100 IM recover @ 2:10 (same pattern as above)
    1 x 100 stroke fast @ 2:40 (same pattern as above)

    8 x 25 fast stroke @ :40
    1 x 100 EZ

    Total: 2700


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


    I drove to Hopkins after practice on Wed for my last ultrasound checkup. Things are about the same, starting to grow collaterals, but that process takes years. Dr Lum was somewhat astonished that I could still pull off a #1 ranking with completely occluded veins. I told him the only thing that saves me is my SDK. He's not very bullish on the long term success rate of vein bypass surgery and I am loathe to have more major surgery. So I trudge on growing collaterals.
