Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!

The team was no practicing tonight, or tomorrow since they are at a 3 day meet this weekend, so I decided to go stretch out a bit at the Y during lap swim time. There ended up being two 12 year old girls from my group there as well doing a workout the coach had given to them since they weren't going to the meet. I ended up swimming a little bit with them after the lanes got condensed down, but first beat myself up slightly on my own.


Warmup:

200 Free
100 Kick w/ board
200 Free Pull
(500/500)

Kick Set (all flutter w/ board):

4 x 50 @ 1:00 (went :48s)
3 x 50 @ :55 (went :48s)
2 x 50 @ :50 (went :47s)
1 x 50 @ :45 (went :43)
(500/1000)

Main Set:

1 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:30
2 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:25
3 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:20
4 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:15 (1:06s)
(1000/2000)

I was going to do 5 @ 1:10, but it was time to condense down from 6 lap lanes to 3 lap lanes, so had to cut it short. And yes QBrain, I would've made the 1:10s.
I ended up sharing with the two 12 year olds from the swim team, and we did the remainder of their workout together:

1 x 400 Free Pull Build (went 4:45)
(400/2400)

16 x 50 IM Order (4 of each stroke) Alt. 1 EZ/1 Fast
  • 4 Fly @ 1:30
  • 4 Back @ 1:15
  • 4 Breast @ 1:10
  • 4 Free @ :45

I changed these intervals to make it more interesting. They had it wrote down as 1:30s all the way through. Blah. Made it feel a little more 400 IMy

Zero cooldown

3200 Yards

It was kind of nice to have a mildly easy swim tonight. I left the pool still energized and not run down like usual.

    Even I can make 5 on 1:10. It was the 6 on 1:05 in a Y pool solo that I was wondering about

    Now that would be interesting. Probably couldn't make it, even with a group setting.

    C'mon over. We can make room for you no problem! I enjoy the competition in practice.
