I met up with Speedo at Oak Marr today for a swim. He arrived sporting a dinged up shoulder from failure to yield to a tree in his last bike race. Ouch. He is gearing up for mountain bike nationals in July. But he promises he misses swimming!
Swim/SCY @ OakMarr:
10 min hottub
200 scull w/agility paddles
8 x 25 shooters w/fins @ :40
12 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
-- 8 dolphin, 4 fast hands
-- After a couple bursts himself, Speedo went a 24 in a 50 free from a push. Fast for being so rusty. Good thing he didn't go 23 or certain people (e.g., Water Rat) would be gnashing their teeth.
8 x (25 AFAP w/fins + 75 EZ) @ 3:00
-- odds = free, 10s
-- evens = back shooter, 9s
8 x 50 w/agility paddles @ 1:00
odds = DPS free
evens = DPS back
I am still tired from "too much too soon." Thanks, long course, just another reason to hate you. So I dialed it back and worked on "platinum" speed today. I had my parachute out, but resisted the urge to use it. Perhaps tomorrow. I'm going to bag most drylands until after Zones. I think it's too much to add back in both drylands and long course.
