Bring on the IM

Rate this Entry
I had a good solo swim at Riverbank this morning. I’ve been grooving on longer things lately, and today was no exception. Here’s how it went:

1000 lcm warmup

4 x 150 k/d/s, IM order

800, every 4th 50 ST, IM order
600, every 3rd 50 ST, IM order
400, alternating FR/ST (ST IM order)
200 IM
400 alt. ST/FR (ST IM order)
600 IM, substituting FR for every 3rd 50
800 IM, substituting FR for every 4th 50
[No intervals—took about 1:00 rest between each piece. Idea was to work ST and keep FR recovery-to-moderate pace throughout set.]

400 warmdown + play

That was it! I was nicely tired afterwards.

On some of the freestyle today I worked on exhaling fully underwater, and discovered that was quite different than what I usually do. I could maintain 3-stroke breathing when doing that and swimming with moderate effort. Something to work further on!

    Maybe you should host the Superbowl, then?!

    Enjoy! I hope that it's actual snow and not the dreaded "wintry mix." I think temps are supposed to climb back to reasonable numbers by the time I head back down there later this week.

    I think here it's going to be freezing rain that may turn to snow later. Sounds lovely!
