It is about time for me to start pushing myself harder. This means faster intervals. When I was given tonights workout it was evident that today was the day. The poblem was that my body didn't get the memo.

500 mix up
4 x 75 r/15 (kick,dog paddle dr,swim by 25)
4 x 75 r/15 (left arm, rt arm, swim by 25)
6 x 50 kick @ 2:00
-- hold best 50 swim time + 15

2 roounds of
6 x 50 @ 50 moderate
3 x 100 @ 1:25 descend
2 x 150 @ 2:05 1 EZ / 1 fast
300 @ 4:05 fast
100 @ 3:00 recovery

4 x 25 @ 40 (3,2,1,0 breathes per 25)


Round one was difficult for me mostly because a 150 @ 2:05 is a little too quick for me to go easy. After that round, coach wanted me to switch to 50, 1:30, 2:15, 4:15. Round 2 was more my speed. Time for me to toughen up a bit.

    Good one Steve! I don't know if it is from having a very physical week at work, still worn out from racing of just wasn't feeling it today.

    Impressive sprinting this weekend! It was nice to meet you and I hope you get feeling better.

    Yes, physically I should have rested that weekend to get over the crud, but I am glad I didn't. You made a ton of points man.

    Anyhow, Im feeling better now, but still exhausted and sore (and I only raced 400 meters that weekend).

    See you at NMB

    Thanks! Almost everyone else in my age group raced each other in the events I don't usually swim. That along with 10 individual events made it easier for me to score points.

    Glad you are feeling better. Let me know if you want to be affiliated with GSMS at any time. We would love to have you.

    See ya in Feb either way.
