Magic every which way

This morning I swam at Riverbank with Hannah and Rondi. We had our own lane for most of the session, and this is what I did:

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

Quadruple magic 700s (ie variations on a 1/1/2/1/3/1/4/1 (lengths) theme)
1. Fast/easy free broken magic 700:

  • 50 fast @ :45
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 100 fast @ 1:30
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 150 fast @ 2:15 [missed this by :02]
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 200 fast @ 3:00
  • 50 easy

2. Fast/easy free broken reverse magic 700

  • 200 fast @ 3:00
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 150 fast @ 2:15
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 100 fast @ 1:30
  • 50 easy @ 1:15
  • 50 fast @ :45
  • 50 easy

  • 50 FL
  • 50 FR
  • 100 BK
  • 50 FR
  • 150 BR
  • 50 FR
  • 200 FR
  • 50 FR

4. ST (IM order) / FR double reverse magic 700 (easy pace, straight through)

  • 50 FL
  • 200 FR
  • 50 BK
  • 150 FR
  • 50 BR
  • 100 FR
  • 50 FR
  • 50 FR


That was plenty of 700s—making the intervals on those first 2 took some effort, and I was feeling pretty spent after the fourth. I did an easy 250, contemplated getting out instead of finishing out my planned 5K, then decided to give myself a short easy set with what seemed like a doable get-out goal time:

3 x 100 FR/BK @ 2:00, descending, <1:35 on last one to get out early [1:50, 1:41, 1:35+]

Ugh—close but not under. Since I didn’t make the get-out time, I did an easy 50 and decided to do the set again, this time with better results:

3 x 100 FR/BK @ 2:00, desc. [1:41, 1:34, 1:31—found my good energy again on these final swims!]

300 warmdown + play
