I like this new scheduling. It's kind of "random" in a way on our day to day schedule, but at least it's posted on our calendar that gets email to us, and any changes, the coach re-emails a new copy with changes. At least with the early nights, I can get to bed at a decent time, hopefully, for work in the morning.

Still, somewhat in team taper mode for their age group sectional meet coming up in a couple weeks. More of a quick re-build, then taper again. I'm just managing what I can with my work schedule. Legs hurt the most with all my walking and standing all day long.


1000 Free

10 x 100 SDK @ 1:30 (odds - make 'em, evens - MAX Rest)
(I did 1:20-1:25 on all of them...I chose to make them all "odd"

20 x 50 Free @ 1:00
Broken into 2 sets of 10 with 2 minutes rest between the sets.
Goal was to hit your 500 pace and hold them there.
  • 1st 10 - went :31/:32s, came down to a :30 at the end...still sluggish
  • 2nd 10 - went :30/:31s for the first 6, then started hitting :29s for #7-9, :28 for the final one

100 EZ

5 x Broken 200s @ 5:30 w/ :15 rest between each.
These should be at or faster than best times
IM or Strokes, No Free (unless doing Fly, then alt. 1 Fly/1 Free)

  • Did 4 of them IM (my recent best time - 2:11)
  • went 2:13/2:11/2:09/2:08
  • Did the final one Free - played my "masters card" and broke the rules.
  • went 1:55, which equaled my recent best time

200 Swim EZ
200 Kick EZ

16 x 25 Choice @ 1:00 (Odds EZ, Evens Sprint)

100 EZ

5000 Yards

Felt good tonight...going to hit the bed now, and hopefully get some good rest for work in the morning.

    Our head coach is also the aquatic director at the high school pool. Now that the h.s. swim season is over with, there are times that have opened up, so some stuff moved around, other programs have jumped in. He's trying to give us more space to swim, but I'm sure the team is having to pay for the added pool space as well. I like the 2-3 per lane with all 6 lanes, rather than the 5-7 per lane with only 3 lanes that we normally get. I won't complain, but will just get in line and follow the leader.
