Magic 600s

Rate this Entry
This morning I swam at Riverbank with Rondi. Yesterday’s snow turned to a wintry mix overnight here, and the footing on the pedestrian bridge leading into the park and in the park itself was a little dicey. The city is very aggressive about salting, but to get to the pool you have to leave city property and walk through what is technically state park land (actually not really land, but landscaped terrain built over the sewage treatment plant, which was built over the river). You can definitely tell where the boundary is.

I was pretty sore and tired this morning. Here’s what I did:

1000 lcm warmup (400s, 200k, 200p, 200 IM d/s)

4 x magic 600:

  • First one was actually a magic 700, because I miscounted, so FR/BK in a 1-1-2-1-3-1-4-1 pattern
  • Second one was a backwards magic 700 minus 100, alternating FR and BK in a 2-1-3-1-2-1-1-1 (lengths) pattern
  • Numbers 3 and 4 were magic 600s, alternating FR and BK in a 1-1/2-1/1-1/2-1/1-1 (lengths) pattern

[I invented the magic 600s today, and liked them because they give me an extra backstroke length vs dropping a 100 from the magic 7s.I experimented with left-side breathing and 4- and 6-beat kicking on the freestyle lengths, and just doing 100 at a time made that seem manageable.]

6 x 100 IM @ 2:00, desc. 1-3 [1:50, 1:45, 1:40, 1:51, 1:45, 1:41]
200 IM kick

300 warmdown + play
