Team LCM, Thursday, July 18

Rate this Entry
Swim/LCM @ Mason

Warm up:

6 x 100 swim + 50 kick
-- mixed up the swims
400 pull, descend each 50
-- NO! ->->
4 x (25 UW + 25 EZ w/fins)
100 scull w/agility paddles
12 bobs

Main Sets:

2 x (3 x 100 w/fins) @ 2:00
1 = 50 free + 50 dolphin kick on right side
2 = 50 back + 50 dolphin kick on left side
3 = 50 breast + 50 dolphin kick on back -- this was by far the fastest of the three, so I guess I suck at kicking on my side
50 EZ

2 x 50 fly drills @ 1:15
200 IM strong
-- I did this cruiser-ish. Too hard and my fly felt like sh*t, so I ceased 200 IMs. I refuse to swim bad fly and I felt like I would get more out of endurance kickingw/fins, so switch to that.
2 x 50 back drills @ 1:15 (we did catch up backstroke pointing at the ceiling -- not easy)
200 IM strong
-- kicked, 2:36
2 x 50 breast drills @ 1:15
200 IM strong
-- kicked, 2:35
2 x 50 free drill (10 right hand sculls, 5 fast strokes, 10 left hand sculls, repeat -- I did not fast strokes, taking recovery)
200 IM strong
-- kicked, 2:30
50 EZ

6 x 50 cat & mouse
1 = mouse
2 = cat
2 = EZ
-- yikes, I wasn't really up to arbitrary explosive sprinting after all that kicking
50 EZ

1 x 50 AFAP off blocks
-- say what? I had been battling calf cramps the whole kick set
-- I did breast with fins, diving off side, to race Chris doing breast with no fins, 30-31
50 EZ

Total: 3600

hottub -- many minutes!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Made it to Mason for a LCM practice. I hope I am not completely dead tomorrow afterward. I'll prolly be running on adrenaline anyway as all our stuff gets moved. LCM 200s are hard. I was surprised I could even descend the kicks with the cramp issues. I've not been taking my magnesium very diligently.

    I don't think PA pools will have a hottub like GMU. It might be a DC thing because Wilson had a hottub too. I don't remember UPitt had. Then again, I repressed most of my memories swimming in that pool ions ago. Then again, I didn't race in it in LCM.

    GMU's hottub is the best -- huge and hot with great jets. That's the only thing I've been spoiled with. Well, and maybe with pool access. No one would say swimming in public rec centers with pooping kids is spoiled, that's for sure.
