Swim/SCY/Solo + Jazzy:
8 x 50 fly drills @ 1:00 or so
10 x 25 easy speed shooters
6 x 25 w/mini bursts
-- I did this while Jazz was in the adjacent lane banging out some fast 50 frees.
Mini Speed Set:
6 x (25 AFAP w/fins + 25 EZ) @ 2:00
free, high 10
fly, high 10
back, high 10-11 (? can't really remember)
hottub, 20 minutes (thought the jets don't really seem to be working
Just a nice little pre-meet drill + speed workout with lots of chatting with Jazz. That boy is getting in shape!
I was stymied in my stretching efforts today by my two girls, both of whom drove me bonkers in their own special talented ways. (In my own experience, girls are so much harder than boys.) I'm sure I won't be able to stretch every day in the Month of the Stretch. But I'm aiming for 5x week.
I was at Mini's swim & dive award banquet tonight and got a good swim tip. One of the fast chicks won an award for the "Glide Girl" because she uses glide to get her tight kneeskin on. That had never occurred to me. Doh. Great way to get the pesky things up and over the hips. I'm going to go hunt around the house to see if I can locate my glide.
Psych sheet for Warrenton meet:
WRT to the 100 fly, I think I'm going to breathe more than usual. In short course, I usually breathe every other stroke. But, with long underwaters, you can still create an oxygen debt. Chris once suggested I throw in some singles in LCM, and that worked like a charm. So I may do this weekend as well. I am thankfully in the predominantly girl heat instead of the boy heat.
