At the Y...not my favorite choice for lap swimming now. I much prefer my workouts with the age groupers now. Swimming in the Y lap lanes can be completely random in terms of everything. I still don't understand how people can't figure out the 3 to a lane thing...


I just did a little something to stretch out my body a bit, and much of my workout was dictated by the 3 ladies I ended up getting to swim around with (around) today.


Warmup:

400 Free
300 Kick w/ board
(700/700)

14 x 50 SDKick w/ short fins on back @ :50 (held :36-:38s)
(700/1400)

4 x 150 Free Pull @ 2:00 (held 1:41s)
(600/2000)


Main Set (about the only thing I could do with my lanemates):

20 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board
  • 8 @ 1:00
  • 6 @ :55
  • 4 @ :50
  • 2 @ :45 (made the first, missed the 2nd)
-----------------------
3000 Yards and done


I originally was planning to do more, but with the amount of people in the two lap lanes, I was pretty limited with my options. I still got in a fair amount of kicking, and a pretty decent workout anyway.

    You did quite well in regards to the circumstances - the 20x50 flutter set performance is impressive. Having watched some of your videos from the Canadian Nationals, I think your kicking is key part of all your strokes, and the last 100 of the 400 IM was excellent. I would think your 200 IM will be very strong this upcoming SCY season considering your SDK progress.

    Thanks a lot. My kicking may not be the best out there, and I certainly don't base everything off my kick, but it is a strong component to my swimming. The age group team I swim with stresses a lot on the kick, and the back half of races coming home strong, so I might as well "join 'em". It's had an impact on my swimming so far this fall as well.
