Results of 1 week of My Speed is Horrible training.

Rate this Entry
I went to the pool tonight with the goal to see if my times in the 25 and the 50 have improved after my first week of doing the My Speed is Horrible training along with my other workouts. Tonight I focused mostly on getting the week ending results and then I will post them under the MSIHorrible thread with my begining time for comparsion.

500 yd Free warm-up
4 x 25 yds swim
4 x 25 yds kick
4 x 25 yds sdk

12 x 25 Free did 20sec /rest 10 = 30sec interval
the last 3 I did easier and lest rest
HR 120


12 x 50 Free did 40-45 on 1min interval

Then I saw Rodney coaching a team. They were finishing up so...
I asked Rodney if he could time my 50 with a stopwatch.
"Sure" he said.

I thought about, pushing off hard,counting the stripes (seven) on the bottom,full sombersault flip turn and breathing.

"On your mark, go."
First lap took two breaths and focused on kick.
Middle of second lap breathed every stroke
Ended holding breath and strong.
"36.23"
Well, no change.

He suggested I wasn't finishing off my stroke in the end and to rock and roll more. I asked him would he time my 25.
"Okay, walk down to the other end of the pool."
"Are you ready?"
Yes.
Go...
I just plowed to the end and looked up.
"15.83" he said.
Yes!!! I finally beat 17 seconds by 1.17secs!!
"Your a fast learner." he said
That made my day.
I really see how important the stopwatch is for acuracy.

    Glad to hear that the training is going well. Pretty soon you will graduate from "My Speed is Horrible" to "My Speed is Blistering"
