Tuesday:

I had to stay a bit late at work last night...at least getting OT for it, but it was pretty physical, and dirty dirty work, in a small cramped space, changing out a few bearings on of the the dryer fans drive shafts. Luckily it was during a downtime period, or else I'd also have been working in an extremely hot and noisy area as well.

I just headed to the pool for a relax my body type of swim, and I had no intentions of doing very much.

500 Free
10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board @ 1:00
10 x 50 EZ Free @ :50 (#5 & 10 were Fly)

-----------------------------
1500 Yards

======================================

Wednesday:

8:50am, I got in just as the water exercise folks were clearing the pool, and they were pulling the lanelines back over into place for lap swim. Perfect timing. I still ended up sharing a lane with some guy who had a wide kick, but luckily I didn't have to tango with him.

Warmup:

400 Free
200 Flutter Kick w/ board
400 Free Pull
400 IM (50 Drill or EZ/50 up-tempo)
(1400/1400)

Kick Set w/ short fins:
200 SDK on back @ 3:00
150 SDK on back @ 2:30
100 SDK on back @ 1:30
50 SDK on back @ :30 (I may have finally hit :30, but it may have still been :31)

100 EZ

10 x 50 Flutter Kick w/ board (no fins) @ :55 (held :48-:50s)
(1100/2500)

Main Set:

2 Rounds
  • 1 x 125 Free @ 1:45 (got about :15 rest)
  • 1 x 75 Free Fast @ 1:00 (got about :05 rest)
  • 2 x 25 Free Sprint @ :30 (15s)

1:00 to "re-evaluate"
4 Rounds
  • 1 x 125 Free @ 1:45 (1:30s)
  • 1 x 75 IM Fast (no Free) @ 1:15 (went about 1:00s)
  • 2 x 25 Free Sprint @ :30 (15s)

(1500/4000)

I liked this set better with the IM work in the middle, rather than all Free. You'd be a bit tired from the 125, then have to do basically a Fast Broken 100 IM with double Free at the end. The bonus is the 4x thru.

100 EZ and gone
