Home Sweet Home!!
I'm glad to be swimming again in the pool, and prefer this type of training (SCY) over any other. SCM would be okay, but I don't have that option around here.
I'm now focused on my next adventures, the first of which is the final day of the USA-S LSC Champs in Spokane which I'm swimming the 1500 LCM and 100 Free & Fly. I consider that the easy swimming. Anything in the pool is easy now.
3 weeks from now will be the real challenge for me. Longbridge swim in Sandpoint, Idaho: 1.76 miles swim (1.1 across the lake next to the bridge, then along the shore to the park). I'm focusing now on doing longer swims in the pool, but keeping up the intensity as well.
5 x 100 Free @ 1:30 (1:10s)
8 x 300 Free Pull @ 4:30 desc. to 3:20 by :10 drops
- (e.g. 4:30/4:20/4:10...3:30/3:20)
- held close to 3:30s the whole way
- #7 was 3:26, #8 missed it but went 3:24
- The 1.76 mile swim is roughly 2800 yards or so, so I'm going to try for one major set each swim that approaches or surpasses this distance, with as minimal rest as possible.
5 x 100 Free @ 1:15 (went 1:08/1:09s)
3600 in under 55 minutes (getting more and more KNelsonish)
