Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine

Workout 03/29/14: morning

Rate this Entry
I had a couple of good days at work, then attended the last hour of class Thursday night. I had three chances to swim yesterday, and didn't. Went to a concert for a couple of girls from Preston's school that are heading to Ireland this summer - that was fun and we won a basket with breakfast goodies!

This morning I made it back to the college for a work day, finally finishing the tiling of the downstairs two bathrooms and then helping with painting on the fourth floor. Then I headed to Masters practice and joined eight other swimmers

w/u: 200 Swim/200 Pull/200 Kick/100 swim

Now for fun with Swimopoly:

We ended up doing:
4 x 25 choice
4 x 12.5 AFAP
4 x 50 b/c
2 x 100 (kick/pull) (I did an extra 50)
3 x 100 back
300 Negative Split
200 Free Relay (me vs the two teams), in place of going to Jail
6 x 50 Best Average on 2:00

100 loosen and out
(Masters/Rec/2600 yds/90 min)

I borrowed this idea from a tweet I saw a while ago and adjusted it to the abilities of our workout group. Instead of using dice to "roll" through the board, we used Greg's stopwatch and the last digit = move. There was enough variety and opportunity to adjust that everyone did the Swimopoly game, even those that typically just swim on their own. It was great fun!

    Great way to add some fun and variety to our practice - and still give us a good workout!

    Congrats on finishing the tiling. You must be a certified expert by now.
