Middle Aged Distance

Tuesday - Fighting the Cold

Rate this Entry
Winter has officially come... this morning my car registered in at a whopping 20 degrees. It did not make me want to jump in a cold pool, but I did anyway. Anyone else feeling the weather struggle? The second main set here I borrowed (and modified a bit) from my masters coach - the rest I wrote.

I hope everyone is staying warm in this winter weather!

W/U (1000):

400 sw
300 kick w/ fins
300 IMO - k/d/s by 25

Main 1 (1200):

4x300
1 - @ 4:00 - pull w/ pads + buoy
2 - @ 3:50 - pads only
3 - @ 3:40 - swim no equipment (have fins handy, I only got about 5-8 sec rest)
4 - @ 3:30 w/ fins

100 easy

Main 2 (1500):

3X[
1x100 swim @ 1:15/1:10/1:05 by round
2x75 @ 1:20/1:15/1:10 by round - 25k/50dr
3x50 @ 1:00/:55/:50 by round - desc 1-3
4x25 @ :30 swim non free]

1 min break between rounds

In the main 2 set, the original practice had a 150 pull @ 2:30 - maintain stroke count after the 4x25. I was short on time so I took that part out, but feel free to keep it in if you want to add a little more length to the workout.

Total: 3800
