My coach was back from his week in the wilderness fishing so I was back to not knowing what the workout was. After a week of having the workouts I can say prefer not knowing until I am told the set; this way I don't hold back. Today was a tough one and it had more speed than our usual Monday workout.
400 free with snorkel and no nose clip
6x50 catchup on 45
12x100 descend 1-4,5-8,9-12 on 1.20
10x100 with fins on 1min
3x200 kick on 4mins
10x50 on 40 moderate
5x100 on 2mins swum 25 AFAP, 50 moderate, 25 AFAP
i did not feel that great on the transition set of 100s holding 1.05 down to 1.01s on each round of 4. The 100s with fins was as usual a killer set for me. I definitely need to work more on my leg strength in the weight room. I did 7 and then had to miss one and then finished it out. The kick was done as recovery(I need to push these). The 50s were pretty easy. The last 5x100s I pushed pretty hard and ended up going 57s despite only swimming a moderate middle 50. I was pleased with how I felt.
