Birthday workout

Rate this Entry
This morning I enjoyed a birthday swim at Riverbank with Rondi and Hannah. We wore our fancy swim caps to celebrate my 48th, as follows:

1100 lcm warmup (400s, 200k, 200p, 200 IM d/s by 25, 100 fr)

48 x 50 @ last-person-in intervals:
multiples of 3 = breaststroke
multiples of 4 = backstroke
multiples of 7 = fly
(strokes earlier in IM trump those later in IM)
primes = kick for 1-24, drill for 25-48

9 x 100 fr/bk @ 2:00, desc. by 3s [this was a set of 12, but I made my get-out time (<1:30) on the 9th so opted to skip the last 3 and do a longer warmdown]

400 SKPS warmdown + play

That was it! I felt lucky to start out the day surrounded by water and friends and mathiness.

    Happy Birthday! Glad to see you celebrated doing something you love

    I (conveniently) was out of town for my birthday this year, and missed the wearing of the flowered cap at swim workout

    And Tim, it's never to late for a make-up birthday swim, complete with festive cap. Meet warmups are an excellent occasion for such attire!
