Back at it regular training again with the kids, back to using my long fins on the kick sets again, back to doing ALL the reps on the sets, and ALL the yardage as given. Oh boy...coming off tapers can be a b**** at times, but I need a little kick in the butt now.

Only had 6-7 per lane tonight, so it was a joy!

Warmup:

1000 Free
(1000/1000)

24 x 50 SDK on back w/ long fins @ :45 - pretty much kicking in a wave pool
(1200/2200)

Lane Station Rotator - Main Set

Lane 6: 7 x 100 Free @ 1:30 EN2 work
using the chart we've been given my :52 best time shows the EN2 100 is about 1:08s - EN2 is supposed to be a pace you could hold "forever" while keeping your HR 130-150 or so.

Lane 5: 7 x 100 Stroke @ 1:40 EN2 work
Did Fly - with my :57 best time showed 1:15 (+2 for fly/back) so 1:17 per 100. I couldn't swim fly that slow and keep it in control, so I just swam them at 1:07/1:08s. Because I did Fly, the odds were stroke, evens were EZ Free

Lane 4: 7 x 100 Free @ 1:30 EN2 work (same as Lane 6)
just held them around 1:08s

Deep Tank: 12 x underwater SDK bursts across tank (about 12.5 yards)

200 EZ
(2400/4600)

All w/ long fins and paddles:
10 Rounds of:
  • 50 Free @ :45 holding ~200 best time pace per 50 (~28.5) - went :26s/:27s
  • 2 x 25 Free @ :45 - Faster speed than the 50s

(1000/5600)

200 EZ

--------------------------
5800 Yards

My abs and legs are already killing me with all this fin work today. Time to start adding some pushups and light weights into my life...just stuff I have around the house though...I'm not a gym rat type of person.

    Just remember, bags of fast food do not count as light weights.

    Yes it is, but I need it now to be ready for LCM. First meet is up in a couple weeks.
