The recent ten days of training have been effective with steady progress in the dryland program and consistent time in the water between three pools; FMAC, FGCU, and Catalina Isle HOA Pool. It was a mix of SCY and LCM, but starting next Tuesday the time in the pool will be almost 100% LCM.

With walking 4 miles each morning this week at Lakes Park with my daughter, dryland training, three days of strong swimming sets including a hard T60 swim, power swimming with fins/paddles, some developmental speed work, it was clear while warming up that I did not have much left.

  • Set 1 - Before doing the warm up I was considering 100s - 150s, but changed to 50s, as my recent pool time has been a mix of LCM and SCY where my LCM pacing still needs more steady development. The results show my basic speed is actually progressing, however while doing 35-36 pace at 80% effort is good at this point, it took what felt like 110% to do those 33s. There is no doubt I have a lot of work ahead to build out the pace towards 100s, 150s, and 200s.
  • Sets 2&3 - After Set 1, there was nothing left to make any significant effort. But found my feel for the water in the backstroke to sustain a nice flowing rhythm. The Fly was very long and smooth and in that way was fun to do.
