Here's my Valentines Day:

Warmup:
200 Free
100 Kick w/ board
200 Free Pull



I had a fellow masters swimmer at the lap swim with me, and he asked what we were going to do: I smiled inside.

Main Set:
PWB's Broken Mile Set from Week #7 Workouts:

Try to hit your 1650 pace during the broken swim. (mine is 1:06-1:07 from an 18:07 best time)
Supposed to pick a Base + :10 for the interval (my base is 1:15 - so 1:25 is suggested).
We ended up going on the 1:30 Base for the set...1) to make math easier, and 2) to give the other guy a little more rest.

3 x 100 Free @ 1:30 (went 1:04/1:05/1:05)
4 x 150 Free @ 2:15 (went 1:39/1:38/1:38/1:39)
3 x 200 Free @ 3:00 (went 2:14/2:14/2:14)
3 x 50 Free @ :45 (went :30/:31/:31)

1650 Total Added Up Time: 18:02
Pretty much right on my best time from last February in a meet.
NOTE: My lanemate was holding between 1:13-1:17 per 100 pace throughout this, so he did a very good job too! It was very nice having someone there with me in the set...kept me moving, and the other guy said the same thing...he wouldn't have swum as hard as he did if I wasn't there either.


150 EZ stretch out

8 x 25 Kick fast w/ board @ :30

4 x 125 Free w/ paddles only @ 1:40 (1:23-1:25s)

100 EZ and out

-------------------------
3100 Yards


================================================

Here's a video that I recorded off the tv tonight. We were going thru old home videos, and this meet from when I was coaching/swimming in Oregon was on there. I think I'm 25, almost 26 years old. Swimming the LCM 200 IM, and LCM 100 Free. Wasn't training very much at the time if I recall.

    It is too bad that you didn't do Masters Meet when you were in my early 20s and in post grad swimming shape.

    "To give the other guy more rest" Yeah, that's it! Nice job on the broken 1650.

    I've got VHS tapes from the conference championships my senior year of high school. I really should digitize them while I still have a working VCR. I think these are the only old videos I have of me swimming. I did pull a couple events a few years back, but not ones I'm swimming in. Here's one of the 100 back that my teammate won. Check out the stand-up start and the old school turns!

    I didn't even really know about Masters back then. I was just worried about working my two jobs (since an assistance coach's salary isn't crap). I think I was making about $600 a month doing the swim coach thing. But it was fun while it lasted! There's only so many jobs you can get out there that work around swim team hours.

    I vaguely remember doing those turns, but lucky for me they changed the backstroke turn rules while I was still young.

    I've got some more videos on VHS that my grandparents took of me from when I was 14 years old at Sr. Regionals. Also some others from college days at some dual meets at Linfield. I may have to YouTube copy them as well.
