SCM, Baylor Fitness Center
noon workout
Billy G. coached

Warm up:
200 swim
200 kick
200 pull
==>Not really paying attention and just stopped for no reason. Probably did about 400 total.

6 x 50 kick on 1:00
Kick on back; no fins; went strong, range 46 to 49.

Main set:

6 x 50 on :50
100 easy
3 x 100 on 1:30
I swam this set and went 2nd. Held 35+ and 1:12/1:13

4 x 50 on :45
100 easy
2 x 100 on 1:25
I kicked this set with Speeedo B&O fins.

2 x 50 on :40
100 easy
100 fast
I jumped back up to 2nd and went :35 and 1:05 on the last one. That is my best ever 100 practice time from a push, but I think I will have a lane leader time (1:06 best) and not leading the lane best (1:05 best today). It makes a huge difference even with just one person in front.

3 x 200's pull
==>No. Sat around and talked to Bobby about my training. Then did a bunch of tummy kicks with my snorkel.

2 x Dives.

++++++++++++++++++++++
Today was a pretty good day. I was in the mood to see what I could do on something longer. And I stuck to my guns and did a lot of kicking instead of swimming everything. The nice thing now is that I can pretty comfortably hold the swim intervals with my Speedo fins.

    When I used to go to more team workouts, I would kick with fins on a lot of swim sets. Never got in anyone's way and I was much happier.

    I agree! Today I was able to do the challenging 50's on my side and still make interval on :45, then kick strong on my back with no board same pace as swimming. It is really nice to be able to mix up my sets with more kicking, and it helps to get over the hump and actually be able to hold swim pace intervals. I can't wait to get my shooter monofin!
