Swim/SCY/ Solo @ Pitt
100 torque drill w/paddles
4 x (25 shooter w/fins+ 25 EZ) @ 1:15
8 x 25 burst + cruise @ 1:00
2 x (25 AFAP back, no SDK + 75 EZ)
5 x (50 AFAP + 150 EZ)
-- 2 back (no push, no SDK), 2 breast (no pullouts), 1 dolphin kick
3 x 50 (backstroke, no SDK @ 90% effort working on not spinning + 100 EZ)
6 x 25 w/parachute & paddles
This is the first time in a long time I've felt up to doing AFAP 50s. Though I didn't attempt fly. It's been an entire month since I've taken a stroke of fly ... Backstroke with no SDK feels like a different stroke.
Typically, this time of year, Pitt is long course on Fri-Sun. But not this weekend bc of lifeguard classes. I'm amazed Pitt rents out lane space for this, but doesn't sell memberships to the public. So it looks like I won't get in a long course workout until May 16.
Nonetheless, displaying total chutzpah, I mailed in my entry form for the Buffalo long course meet. http://www.usms.org/comp/event.php?M...0140607ublc14L. Several of my swimmers are going, so it should at least be fun. The 50s were not very well spaced out, so I am going to space them out myself by doing:
100 breast, split request
I don't feel like doing 50 free. I haven't done much of it in practice since the shoulder issue (now resolved) and it doesn't feel great. I entered times a second slower than last year, but even that may be a stretch. I know if I didn't have a meet to train for, I would lose focus and start cross training. And since I'm already going to miss 2 1/2 weeks of swimming this summer, that would not be good idea.
