Rate this Entry
Warm up
- 6x50 drill swim*
- 4x75 kick with fins (did an extra 50)
- 4x150 ?? (don't remember what the end of warm up was)
Main Set
- 10x100 on 1:20 (first 1:07, rest 1:09/1:10, goal was sub 1:10, so I was a little slow)
- 4x50 kick with fins on :45
- 4x50 back on :50
- 200 reverse IM
- 2x150 on 2:00 (1:40, 1:40)
Cool down
- 200 back ez

* Swimming 50s during warm up is like pouring icewater down my pants. I don't do it because it is too cold. Swam non-stop drill swim.

Swam with Mark, Gerald and Anna on the main set today. Mark said he was just going to try to survive 1:20s and Anna made funny faces. All made it (Gerald did 75s).

    I'm not good at group warm up. I usually do my own thing, as do most of us. That's some quick change time in and out of fins.

    It wasn't a triathlon, so I didn't record transition times, but the second set of kick was pretty lackadaisical on 45s. They might have been on 50. I only really cared about the 100s and the last 2 150s today.

    I can't stand getting in and doing 50s or an assigned set either. I need to warm up slowly because I am a geezer in a wheelchair.

    Same here. It usually takes a 1,000 yards or more to break the rust off.
    Sprinting is best left for the end of practice.

    Only Geek qualifies as a cranky old man. No one else seems to complain about their age or yell at me to get off their lawn as much as Geek.

    I am fine with an assigned set, but usually it is something like 200 swim, 200 kick, 200 pull with no intervals. Starting with anything less than a 200 in a competition temp pool is too cool first thing in the morning.

    I'm fine with my age. You seem to be the one obsessed by it. I think it is because you aspire to the wisdom that comes with my advanced years.
