UMHS - 5:30-7:30
Warm 2x100, 100P, 100K (Coach kept asking if I was warm, so I kept the warm up short this week)
10x50 Capt Nemo drill (same as yesterday, but I gave it a name)
5x100 FR Pull on 1:45 ( was avg 1:20) used small paddles, loaned my big paddles to Dr. Bob
6x75 K BK dolphin/side dolphin/other side dolphin on 1:30 (core and legs were shot, had to do them on 2:00 w/ fins)
20x50 from blocks 25 100%/ 25 EZ 5 ea, IM order. (Did 5 Fly (~:12-:14), 2 BK (:18) and 1 FR(:13), seniors were wrapping it up)
I have been working on fixing my fly kick; now I have 2 kicks and don't even think about it. Continuing to work on keeping pinky's up (or thumbs down) and got some great coaching on transitioning from dive/SDK to first stroke.
Trying to keep the training intensity up to break through this annoying plateau.
Reno meet in 4.5 weeks; not a big meet, the great swimmers avoid this one, however for me a relatively "poor" swimmer its a good training/set NEW benchmarks meet for the SCY season.
