Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!

Sun, Feb. 3, 2013 1:00-2:00pm got the boot!

I went to the YMCA for an afternoon lap swim session, with plans to get up over 5000 or so yards. I knew it would be interesting with the typical swimmers there, and I'd have to manipulate my swims based on who or what I was sharing my lane with. Things for the most part were good...and then at 2:00, while I was doing an easy kick between sets, a boy in the public swim area decided it was time for all of us to get booted from the pool. He threw up his lunch all over! Well, close enough to getting to my 5K goal for the day. At least I'd gotten in a decent swim first. That's one disadvantage of lap swims sharing with public swims at the Y.


Warmup:

200 Free
200 Kick w/ board
400 Free Pull
200 Free
(1000/1000)

Kick Set:
20 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ ~1:00, or :50, or :53, or 100s straight...depending on where my lanemates were. They don't understand interval training even if I give a basic lesson about it, so I just swim
(1000/2000)

6 x 150 Free @ ~2:00, again depending on lane space. I had some interesting passing attempts at times.
(900/2900)

300 Free Pull stretch out
(300/3200)

4 x 100 @ 1:50 (75 Back, :10 rest, 25 Free Sprint)
(400/3600)

200 Kick EZ w/ board
on the 175 turn is when the boy unloaded himself, and we were done with the pool.

    Blowing chunks, layin' a log, leaving an oil slick... yep, it happens. I've had a few swims cut short b/c of an "accident" in the open swim area.

    I was just happy it happened near the end of my planned swim, vs. right into my warmup.
