LCM, SMU outdoor pool
400 warm up
12 x 50 on 1:00
12.5 kick/easy swim
25 kick/easy swim
37.5 kick/easy swim
repeat 4 times.
2 x 300 pull on 5:00
==> NO! went to diving well and did Modified Fort sprints: this was a sampler of her workout with speed work from the middle of the pool.
"25" from a running start;
turn around, scull slightly off wall, take 3 breaths, then
"25" from a dead start back to the wall in 1 breath.
I really liked this, but didn't have that much time. I need a lot of rest, and could only do 3 w/in the 10 minutes.
Rejoined the group....
10 x 50's on :50/1:20
1st 50: make the interval;
2nd 50: blasto first 25, easy 25.
emphasis was on "back half" sprinting when you are not entirely fresh from that first 50.
Fast 50 on coach's watch
I have no idea why I set my target times the way they are. I was very happy with a SCM 29 from a wall dive on Friday, yet today I did a bonus LCM 50 at the end of workout on coach's watch, went 29.7 (same as last week) and was disappointed. You would think I should be happier with the LCM 29, but for some reason I am quite disappointed.
Bobby said my head was too low on the first 1/3 and I was having to plow my way down the pike. I guess I should not dip so low but also not just raise my head. I was also pretty tired. I think I need to start doing the fast bits in the middle or at the beginning of workout when I am fresh, and then maybe a 2nd effort at the end. I was happy with the breathing (3) with the last coming right past the 12.5m line.
Next up: This week will try to get to SCM 28 in workout. If I can stay disciplined, maybe take 1 workout and do 4 x 50's on 10 min or so to attempt this aggressive goal. I'll also do some fly sprinty bits, continuing a long trek back to fly shape.
