Rate this Entry
Tonight was a little different practice. Basically it was going to be a somewhat self-directed day, as the coach would give the sets, but then he was pulling the swimmers out one by one to talk about their meet last weekend, and also go over the end of season goals for whatever meet they're shooting for, whether that be the A Champs, Sectionals, Sr. Sectionals, etc. I was the only one who didn't get pulled out for any special talk... But I did get to practice all by myself in lane 6 tonight which was a big plus. I basically had free reign to do what I wanted, so I just took John's sets, which were basically easy/recovery, and twisted them a bit to be a "high score" on my 1 workout yardage as a masters swimmer.

    Massive. I guess you didn't have time to worry about missing a special talk. No advice for Indy for you from the coach?

    That is massive!

    Don't you ever feel like you need a recovery workout or that it would be good for you shoulder?

    We have our casual talks every now and then. He knows I'm not worried about anything at this time of year, and since I'll be taking off a bit of time in March (1/2 time swimming) that I'll have a quick re-focus in April to be ready for May.

    I had my recovery day on Sunday when I didn't go to the meet. Normally I swim 5-6 days a week, and already had taken off Thursday anyway this week, so I was fine. My shoulder was just sore for a bit, but freestyle stuff doesn't aggrevate it at all, either does pulling with paddles. I'm weird, huh? Lots of regular fly swim will get to me, and that's why I try not to do too much of it lately..pretty much only in meets.
