Wednesday AM masters swim workout @ Sendero, SCY

400 w/u

4 x 75 @ :10 rest, done 25 kick/25 drill/25 swim

4 x 75 @ 1:15, build by 25

100 easy

main set:
17 x 100 (in honor of 2017), done as:
3 rounds of:
--desc 1-3
finishing up with a very easy, then a fast 100 for time.
I did the first 3 @ 1:25, then dropped back to 1:30 (more time for the very easy before the fast)

200 kick w/fins, I did 50 fly-back-free-breast (stopped to take off fins before breast)

350 pull

150 w/d

TTL: 3500 yards

there was a new guy who was just planning to swim laps on his own, but the coach and a few swimmers convinced him to swim with us. although he wore board shorts, I could tell during warm-up that he was fast.
he started the 100s with the fast guy and I, but when I dropped back this new guy kept going.
I chatted with him after, he had just moved here from Hawaii and is used to swimming o/w. I told him that if he was that fast in board shorts (with pockets), he'll fly through the water in a jammer or brief.

I thought the set was good. challenging for me... I've been wondering if I could hold a 1:25 interval, and the answer is: not for very long. I probably could have suffered through a few more, or grabbed some paddles. so now my goal is the next time I do something like this to try 1-2 more at the faster interval.
hard to imagine, but I remember back when I was in very good shape (and a good 20+ pounds lighter) I was able to do 10 x 100 @ 1:20

temp was a little chilly, upper 30s. but as always, the water was nice and warm.
