I'm enjoying taper time...at least that's what my team is doing in preparation for the Champs meet this coming weekend. I'm doing things right along with them, for the most part. I figure with my masters SCM meet coming up in Idaho next weekend, I can enjoy a little rest now, and see what I can blast away at with times...and then build it back up for a month or more prior to Indy's taper time.
600 (25 Free/25 V-sit/25 Breast flutter kick/25 V-sit)
12 x 100 Flutter Kick w/ long fins & board @ 1:50 (Desc. 1-3)
I decided to switch it up a bit with the extended rest and try out a little flutter with a board. Normally on short rest I end up cramping while kicking on my stomach, but today I was okay with the longer rest.
400 Free Pull Desc. 100s
Main Set: Rotating Lanes Circuit
12 x 50 Free @ 1:00 Holding 500 Free pace
Started at :30/31s, then all :30s, last couple at :29s
8 x 50 Choice Drill (did Fly) @ 1:30
The following drill takes up the entire 50, just keep the pattern through the turn
Did 3R/3L, 2R/2L, 1R/1L, Regular Fly to finish (about 3-4 strokes)
4 x Broken 100s @ 3:00 w/ :10 rest @ each 25
Deep Tank widths-
12 Cross Pool Sprints @ 1:00
8 x 25 @ 1:00 Odds EZ, Evens AFAP Sprint
Did all Free...beat the 12 year old girls next to me.
600 EZ cooldown
I'm feeling fast, and wish I could shave and throw down a 500 Free. For some reason I feel like I could break 5:00. I want to race this weekend with the team, but I have to be in Seattle to send off my mother-in-law at the airport. Oh well...that's life.
