It was a colder and windier day in town tonight, so I decided to pull out my old $20 Finis Legskin that I purchased during the last SCY season that the now illegal suits were legal. Finis was closing out all their stuff for $20 a piece, since they couldn't be used for USAS swimming anymore. I should've got more. I use it now and then for swims, or in OW swimming if the water is warmer.
The legskin was great though, it kept my legs nice and warm, plus I got the added buoyancy and speed effects from it, though I did have a drag suit over it as well.
Little Ol' Kick Set:
4 x 200 SDK on back @ 3:30 (was going around 2:50s or so)
8 x 100 Flutter Kick (ended up doing SDK on back) @ 1:40 (around 1:25/1:30s)
16 x 50 SDK on back @ :50 (:40-:45ish)
Swim Set/Main Set:
4 x 200 Free @ 3:15 (held 2:35 and under, fastest was 2:30) <--my last meet swim was 2:18
8 x 100 Free @ 1:30 (held around 1:15s)
16 x 50 Free @ :45 or some random interval...I was just following the group, but it was like :45, 1:00, :45, :45, 1:00, etc.
--just survival swim on these, more of recovery w/ speed
6000 LC Meters
Boy was that legskin fun to practice in.
Good set. I like doing freestyle in Long Course, and that's about it, well - Fly too is good. Because we did a heavy freestyle night, I can count on tomorrow being an IM/stroke day, so I may skip it. We'll see how work goes tomorrow.
