Swim Workouts

    Hey I like this workout! Except it'd be a regular season workout for me. I'd probably change the 12 x 100's free to fast descend/broken on 1, 4, 7, and 10, then easys on the others, and drop off the last 2, heh heh. Then beat you to all the hot water in the showers as i skip the 1100 at the end. No, seriously this is a nice workout!

    I guess we now see the difference between a sprinter and a distance swimmer? I remember having long debates about sprint workouts vs distance workouts in college. In there own way they are both difficult. My problem has always been I dont have a fast twitch muscle in my body and when I try to sprint its a distance guys version of a sprint, which basically equates to he same speed I would go if I did not sprint! I would bet that from the blocks my 50 sprint would be about .5 - 1 second slower than my first 50 of a 500. I guess I will find out for sure at Nationals where I swimming all the free events except the mile(they would not allow entry in the 1000 and the 1650).

    Thanks for the feedback.
