Riverbank morning

Rate this Entry
Today I swam at Riverbank with 3 friends. I arrived a little before the doors opened, so went to the adjacent playground for a nice pre-swim stretch. Iím looking forward to warmer weather so that I can resume my longer post-swim stretches there. Todayís goal in the pool was to get in some aerobic work/yardage and focus on my breathing timing on freestyle. Hereís what I did:

600 lcm warmup (400s, 200k) [found a pearl earring in our lane!]

400 IM
400 FR
300 IM
300 FR pull
200 IM
200 FR pull
4 x 200 build-an-IM (50 FL/150 FR, 50 FL/50 BK/100 FR, 2 x 200 IM)
5 x 100 kick
[There is some pattern-logic to this set--the first 6 swim corresponded more or less to the 1 x 500, 2 x 400, 3 x 300 that my freestyle-focused swim buddies were doing (and from which the 4 2ís and 5 1ís naturally followed). Doing some IMs (and getting more rest) suited me better.]

100 warmdown + play
