Talked a lot with my VERY trusted taper coach ... he said to only swim twice this week, I talked him into a third time - which is supposed to be a sprint free warm-up swim only -
Warm-up (also discussed he also relented and let me do my typical 1,000)
200 IM drill
300 drill (200 fly, 100 free)
4 x 50 kick/swim
2 x 25 build
1 x 100 free broken at the 50 for :10 and 75 for :10
1:02 from a push with a late start
1 x 50 fly broken at 25 for :15
1 x 25 free fast no breath - :13.6
5 x 100 free on 1:40 swim them slower than 1:25
Did some ez swims inbetween the sprints and got 1,800 in - it's almost go time. I'm definitely feeling that fatigued muscle feeling so according to my calculations I am right on track.
We also talked a LOT about my 100 free and how to take it out more aggressively. I ALWAYS try to do that but I haven't done that well since 08. I'm thinking of changing my strategy a wee bit. I think I need to focus on killing my legs the first 50 and forget about the 2nd 50 (until I get there).
Coach promises my training will carry my legs through the last 25 (I think the training and my beloved B70 will) - fingers crossed!
