  1. Workout 01/12/19: morning

    by , January 12th, 2019 at 01:34 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    I helped do a special coaching session with the high school swim team yesterday that consisted of butterfly technique development and flip turns. Once a year I try to help them out and the kids are generally receptive to having someone hop in the water and show them the correct way to do things. I swam about five hundred yards during the course of the hour along with the kids. Today the Masters group worked on preparing for the one hour swim which we will do in 5 weeks.

    200 swim/100 kick/200 pull (extra 200)
    4 x 50 burst and cruise

    2 x (2 x 25 stroke lesson, 3 x 50 stroke)
    -- backstroke 1st round, breaststroke 2nd)

    8 x 100 on hour swim pace + 10sr
    (I did 10 on 1:30, holding 1:15)

    4 x 25 on :30
    200 loosen and out
    [Masters/Rec/2600 yds/75 min]
    ==========================

    A good workout with Greg, Jim, Jeff, Melissa, Kevin, Libby, and Mary. I was planning to hold 1:20s on the 100s so next time I do it I will shoot for 1:25 interval.
