Seems that I require about a week to adjust from LCM to SCY, just I did previously from SCY to SCY, even though I have been training consistently throughout. Set 1 was something coach Chuck tossed out at me while I was doing a few minutes of bands on the deck, as I normally do not kick with the board. It was harder than expected, and I thought I had a break between the two rounds, but he was yelling at me to keep going so I did. The first one was about 11, and then I just went as fast as I could when he said go. Later he said I ranged from 10-12s.
In doing Set 2, I descended with catch up freestyle drill 50s 1-3 with 50/4 being FR DPS about SPL-12/13. I switch around the equipment to make it interesting and to keep refocusing on blending technique, power, and body balance.
Set 3 was my request so coach Chuck could get the results and split the 25s. I had been doing quality fin swimming almost daily with the longer stiffer TYR fins (compare to the shorter floppy Slim Fins I have). When I started using the Finis Monofin Shooter again last week I was able to quickly adapt over several days. Coach Chuck says my goal for underwater 25s should be at 7, so today I got down to 8, and that is a good start. We did not focus so much on the total 50 time as much as each 25. The splits are from his watch for each 25, foot to hand touch, and then total time including the open turn.
Set 4 was just some base yardage for 2.5K OW I am doing in October 5 in Sarasota as a cycle of freestyle drill with faster 25s. The 3K will be one loop, and I plan to start the swim out about 75% and build from there.
