Swim/SCY/Solo @ Pitt
3 x 50 scull w/paddles
6 x 25 shooters w/fins @ :45
8 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
-- I felt so sore and tired that I almost got out of the water at this point. But I soldiered on, and am glad I did.
5 x (50 AFAP w/fins + 150 EZ) @ 5:00
1 = breast, 26 high
Say what?! I was shocked to see this time on the clock. I've only been in the 27s a few times. Had to do another to see if it was a fluke … not!
2 = breast, 26 high
3 = fly, 23
4 = dolphin kick w/board, 24 high
5 = backstroke kick, 15+ UW, 23
5 x (25 AFAP w/fins + 75 EZ) @ 3:00
2 x breast, 12s
flutter kick w/board, 10 high
Today, I was sore and sluggish from the massage, which was great btw. I've been dragging the last few days. I looked back at my training from last week and I realized I failed to take a pure recovery day while doing a lot of speed, USRPT type training and weights. I don't agree with Rushall that USRPT can be done every day without fatigue. Not correct. Masters sprinters are just a different category, at least ones my age. And it makes sense that high race pace volume, even at 25 distances, could wear you down.
