Let the countdown begin...
First Long Course Meters practice is now in the books, and it'll be done sometime around mid-August when the city pool closes its doors for the season. The pool isn't "officially" open to the public until after school ends in a few weeks, but the USA-S team is the only ones with access to it right now. We are hosting a meet there next weekend after all!
First 10/15 minutes or so spent getting the LCM frickin' lanelines into the pool. Luckily we don't have to take them in and out daily until the pool is needed for public swims and lessons.
200 Flutter Kick (50 Back/50 Side/50 Other Side/50 Back)
200 Dolphin Kick (same as above)
200 Breast Kick (1 Pull - Kick as many times as possible, then repeat)
16 x 50 IM Order - 4 each stroke, Desc. 1-4 @ LIFO
- we have no pace clock currently at the pool, so things are either LIFO or :15 rest, etc for now
3 x 400 Free Pull @ :20ish seconds rest, Desc. 1-3 (whatever...it's just survival swim for me)
10 x 50 Fly @ :45/1:00 rest
- SDK underwater as far as possible
- Breakout, take 5 strokes Fly
- Dive back underwater, SDK as far as possible again
- Breakout, 5 more strokes
- Then SDK to the wall
- That was the goal at least...I made it to almost the flags at the far end before I had to give up
Interesting set...my kicking is decent, but I just can't go that far very fast for long
6 x 100 SDK w/ long fins @ :15 rest GO FAST
Cooldown with Sharks n Minnows in the deep tank. It was a special request, and granted. We haven't really played that all year long, and it was great!
