-- trying to hold 12s, SDK to 15 m
-- missed #3 right off the bat but kept going as is the protocol
-- missed # 17, skipped #18
-- cramped on #25 and skipped that one then kept going
-- the last 10 felt pretty hard after the previous set
-- next time I do this set, I think I will SDK less and swim more so the arms get more of a workout
Just did an EZ swim yesterday. I was pretty beat from the meet and the meet insomnia. In fact, last night I fell asleep during Game of Thrones and was in bed for 11 hours. Got in a very solid swim today with 1400 yards of race pace work.
Here are the results from Zones, including split requests: http://www.patriotmasters.org/Coloni...ults/index.htm
Does anyone know whether you can use a split request at a Canadian meet?
I need a new suit. I am contemplating getting the Arena Carbon Pro Flex. Arena claims that the regular carbon pro is better for fly/free and that the Flex is better for back/breast/IM. I'll be swimming a lot of the latter at Canadian Nationals. Speaking of which, I'm going to really limit my events so that I'm only swimming 1 per session and so I'm avoiding anything in the early morning. At this meet, they are having a morning and afternoon session with a lunch break for the officials. How civilized! It seems I'll be doing more 100s than 50s at this meet, so will try to gear my training in the next month toward that. Does anyone have a favorite set they like for 100 training?
I am heading back to the gym tomorrow. Rather dreading it. I'm going to try for shorter sessions during the next month so it doesn't totally kill my pool work.
