Well...I decided to go back for more. I ended up being the lane leader for the entire workout tonight. The other fast guy in the group was a no show tonight, but I still had a lot of young guns keeping me honest.
800 Free w/ every 3rd length non-free (did back)
300 Kick w/ board, every 4th length dolphin
6 x 150 Free Pull @ 2:00 (went 1:45s to start, last 2 1:43/1:42)
...that was warmup. I'm used to about 500 warmup and getting right to it. In the 'olden days' that pull part would've been my main set. Now, it's time to figure out if:
Coach gave us the "main set":
- A) Keep going and like it
- B) Call the bank to make a stop payment on my deposit
- C) like a baby
2 Rounds of:
The 100s I was holding 1:20-1:22s, 200s about 2:44s
- 300 Free cruise @ 4:30
- 4 x 100 IMs @ 1:30 (originally was going to be 1:20s, but no way)
- 2 x 200 IM @ 3:00 (also supposed to be 2:45s)
- 1 x 400 IM best effort
- 50 EZ and back for round 2
First 400 was 5:15, 2nd one was 5:26 UGH
That's what you get for a best effort at the end of 5K yards!
10 x 50 Kick w/ fins @ 1:00 Odds dolphin, Evens Free
cramped on #2 - like I told the coach I would. Made 8 of them.
200 EZ and out.
5700 Yards for me. Not bad. I'm actually tired tonight. And I'm losing a little weight too with this increased workload (as well as eating up the GTD deficit that I have). Gonna have to start eating more Taco Bell now!
Our team is an IM based team, which I do prefer as opposed to the freestyle based teams. For age group swimming, I think IM base is the best way to go, to build a strong all around swimmer, and let them specialize later in college, etc. At least this will be great for my 200 Fly/400 IMs and beyond.
Oh, and the answer to my question above: Both A & C
