Yesterday: weights & then 45 min in the pool to loosen up - around 2500yds
Today, actually got there early enough to do arm swings before warm up.
200 breaststroke kick
Three times through:
200 @ 2:40
150 @ 2:00
100 @ 1:20
1min rest; first time swim, second pull, last time w/zoomers
16 x 50 @ 1:00; 4 free; 4 kick; 4 stroke; 4 kick
500 Pull w/snorkel
500 breast free
Trying to figure out how to WORK every swim like a race, so that I'm increasing the time I spend at race pace - which is why on the main set I used paddles & then zoomers on sets 2 & 3 - gave myself enough rest that I could then go the second distance hard as well. I wasn't as happy with my swim as I would have liked - the young lady in my lane should have been two or three lanes over - she is plenty fast - but is new to our team & doesn't know the others, so swims with the old ladies I guess because she knows we'll be nice to her - some of the kids are so darn cliquish - it's a shame. She'll probably earn their friendship as she earns their respect by beating them in the meet. Anyway - couldn't keep up with her, but at least she didn't lap me!!
