A much much better night. No back nerve pinching issues like I had yesterday, so I went at it. Also the high school boys (all 3 of them) came back and made the fast lane like it used to be in the fall. Intense workout.


Warmup:

1000 Free
(1000/1000)

10 x 100 SDK w/ long fins @ 1:25
I left my short ones at home so I borrow from the YMCA supply. Long fins make the kicking soooooo easy.
(1000/2000)

10 x 100 Free Pull @ 1:40 (went 1:03-1:05s)
I led these, but had I gone slower I would've had Jared right on me
(1000/3000)

Main Set (Super 500s - IM Style)

4 x Super 500s @ 9:00
  • All 25s are Sprint, the other distances are relaxed, or in our case with the H.S. boys...Sprint also!!
  • Take :10 rest between each distance
  • 25 Free
  • 50 Fly
  • 25 Free
  • 75 Breast
  • 25 Free
  • 100 Back
  • 25 Free
  • 75 Breast
  • 25 Free
  • 50 Fly
  • 25 Free

We were coming in just a bit under the 8:00 mark, so had about a minute rest on each. I was sandwiched between the leader Jared, and another kid Alex the whole set. Depending on the strokes it was interesting, but neither of the 3 of us were going to slow down for the others to get by.

100 EZ
(2100/5100)

6 x 50 Free @ :45 into
6 x 50 Free @ :40 into
6 x 50 Free @ :35
just make them.
This was tough, I led the group, but Jared was right on me. He is a 4:52 500 Freestyler from last week's H.S. State meet, but since he led the IM set, I volunteered for this one.
(900/6000)

800 Free cooldown

-------------------------------
6800 Yards


Tomorrow the team is going to work on their relays and exchanges for the Champs meet which is another week away, but John will have 2 lanes available for those of us not going to Champs to have a real workout.

--------------------------------------------------

Then on Saturday is the team's annual Swim-A-Thon. John has told the group that no one will be "going for any records", etc. etc. on the swim, and that he'd prefer that most take all of the 2 hours to swim their 5000 yards.



I'm not going to get a record, but the group of boys I swim with can still bring it in around an hour anyway swimming "EZ", so I'm going for my <1 hour swim for the 5000 yards. I'm not going to go crazy though if the lane conditions don't allow me to go fast though, I still have respect for my teammates.

*** If anyone would like to donate to my team's swim-a-thon efforts, feel free to send me a private message, and I can give you the information on how to donate.
