Fast Food Makes for Fast Swimming!

I talked with coach John about when we may be getting into the outdoor pool. He told me that it is full of water now, and they're going to begin heating it on Monday, so in about 3-4 days after that it should be "swimable". So he says...he's not the one getting into the frigid water!! But it looks like my LCM adventures may begin as early as a week from now. That will give us just about a week to work on our swimmer's tans prior to the home LCM meet the first weekend of June.

Warmup:

600 (25 Free/25 V-Sit Scull)
(600/600)

16 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:10 (held :44-:47s)
(800/1400)

16 x 50 IM Order 4x thru @ 1:00
I did these fast, roughly :30 Fly, :36 Back, :37 Breast, :28 Free
It's pretty sad that my breast is almost the same speed as my back in practice times.
(800/2200)

Main Set: All w/ paddles and long fins

8 Rounds:
  • (for reference my 200 Free time is 1:54, so 100s :57, 50s :28.5 times to shoot for)
  • 100 Free @ 1:30 at 200 Pace
  • 50 Free @ :45 EZ Peezy
  • 50 Free @ 1:00 at 200 Pace
  • 25 Free @ :45 faster than 200 Pace
  • 25 Free @ :45 AFAP Blasto
  • I did fine for 4 Rounds, holding at or faster than my "pace times", then I had to back off a bit to around 1:00/100 pace. I guess the IM 50s early did me in a little more than I thought.



200 EZ
(2200/4400)

10 x 50
Odds Front Scull @ 1:15
Evens Breast Fast @ 1:05 (held ~:38-:39s)
(500/4900)

4 x 25 Free AFAP @ 1:00
(100/5000)

300 Cooldown

--------------------------
5300 Yards

    I don't think that you can get that tan at 7PM and after. Then again, I am no tanning except or dermotologist.

    I guess so. It depends on the individual, and myself, I favor SCY/SCM. But I'll do what I need to do.

    The outdoor swimming will be at 5:00 for the next couple weeks till after school lets out. Then it'll be from 6:30-8:30pm. City pool makes too much off the afternoon public swims and such. So that leaves me only a few weeks to get my tan going good.
