Velocity Swimming and Bainbridge Island Swim Club did a little co-mingling tonight at practice. The fast lane was all BISC besides myself and Henry. I was going pretty much #3 in the lane behind two studs, and Henry was going #6 or so in the lane, but he's nursing a sore shoulder and taking it easy.
We did the sprint workout, which I honestly thought was a bore, but my coach John didn't want me to wear myself out doing the distance practice a few days before the meet. He knew my legs were already a bit sore with crampy feelings, and just wanted me to rest a bit.
600 (50 V-Sit, 50 Free Build) - I had to show our BISC kids what V-sit was. They didn't think it was too bad...for the first 50, but doing more and more of it...they weren't too thrilled. Like John says..."found something we're better than the others at".
12 x 50 Kick w/ board @ 1:20
12 x 50 @ 1:15 - 3 of each stroke (Drill, EZ Swim, Build Swim)
I went 2nd for the Flys, then lagged near the back for the back and breast, then back up for the Frees
12 x 100 Free w/ paddles @ 2:00 (50 reg. arms w/ overkick legs, 50 catchup Free EZ)
- to me, this meant sprint Free with a slight kick, then EZ Free back.
12 x 50 Free Fast w/ paddles @ 1:15
- yeah, ok. Went 200ish pace with a slight kick. Did try on the final one though.
4 x 50 Sprint choice stroke @ 1:30
did 3 Fly, then 1 EZ Free - Flys went for 200ish pace, somewhere around :37/:38ish
I did a 100 cooldown at this point and got out. They continued on with another kick set of really nothing for the next 15 minutes, but I didn't need that.
4100 LC Meters
Overall a very very easy practice. Even Henry had the same thoughts afterward. I guess that means we didn't do it right, huh?? Oh well, I was resting. Leslie would even agree that you don't want to waste yourself 2-3 days ahead of a meet.
