    Good choice since you think 200s hurt!

    How much are you going to cut back on yardage? 50%? 40%?

    Of the yards you do, how much will be speed work? Of the speed work, how much will be kicking?

    How long will you taper on the speed/strength plan?

    What will you do for filler sets when you're not doing speed work? Just easy/recovery swimming?

    Are you doing relays at zones too?

    And this isn't even the ask ande thread ... Just curious. Given all my own nagging injuries the last month, I think any hard aerobic work is out for me. I think I'll have to follow the strength/speed plan. Of course, that could be better anyway.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Blog

    went to the dentist today

    she said my back left lower molar root is infected and
    the tooth should be extracted

    I decided to get on antibiotics and get more second opinions

    Hope this doesn't mess up my swimming plans

    Re: Ande's Swimming Blog

    Ande,

    How many weeks/months does your speed/strength training phase last?

    Are you cutting volume by about 50%?


    On another subject, I have gotten a few bad tooth aches from infections and root canals and crowns worked for me. Swam right through them. I think loosing a tooth can lead to other teeth moving, the top tooth growing down.....I would think you would need a bridge or something? I'm no expert but I think you want to keep what you have as long as possible. Get another opinion.

    1 week & 2 days away or
    9 days away

    Hi rtodd,
    you asked:
    How many weeks/months does your speed/strength training phase last?
    from now till nationals then through Senior Circuit Championships
    June 5 - 8 which are 11 weeks away, I want to see If I can improve on my 25.3 50 LCM meter free

    Are you cutting volume by about 50%?
    not really counting, I've pretty much cut out hard aerobic training from now till nats,
    I'll do some gentle aerobic stuff on easy per 100 paces like
    1:15 - 1:20 scy and
    1:30 LCM

    next week
    I'll taper for zones so I'll do around 1,500 - 2,000 a day
    I plan to lift M W F, skip Sat / Sun then resume Mon 3/31

    After Zone I'll pick back up slightly to
    2,500 - 3,000 per practice till I taper for Nats
    which will be 10 - 14 days out of Nats
    then I'll really rest and do 1,000 - 1,500 a day
    but till then I'll be doing speed training and strength work,
    hope to get stronger and faster just before Nats

    I agree with you on on teeth,
    "keep what you have as long as possible."

    The Martindale Man Hunt

    Yesterday, when it started getting dark around 7:30 pm my wife started worrying. She told me that my son Dane and 2 of his friends decided to go kayaking and they were dropped off at Thompson's island around 5:00 pm (which is a bit too far to start that late)
    http://southwestpaddler.com/images/SanMarcosmap11.gif

    Their plan was to kayak back to our house which is about a 10 mile trip.
    Beth talked them into wearing shoes. Dane had no shirt.

    Here's a map that shows their planned trip
    (on the river not the road)
    A: Thompsons Island
    B: Our house
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...,0.159645&z=13

    7:45 As darkness approached Beth said we need to go look for them. So we drove to various spots and called out, didn't hear anything.

    8:00 She's started getting really nervous, we drive back to our house, around 8:30 she visits the martindale police and begins a man hunt for the boys. we still haven't heard from them. Beth is in her car

    At this point she tells me they started at Thompson's island instead of Old Bastrop highway, so I believe they didn't get as far and we need to search further up stream than where were first started looking

    I'm with my father in law in his pick up

    As time passes we start to get really worried. We figure they didn't get as far as they planned and they have enough sense to get off the river when it gets dark. Plus with the sun going down and a breeze picking up, we knew they were had to be cold.

    Time ticks by slowly and still no word.

    9:05 pm: Finally my wife calls me saying that Dane was at a home on River Bend Road, they pulled off the River, decided going through cotton seed rapids in the dark wasn't a good idea

    here's a map that shows
    A their starting point and
    B where they pulled out
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...3&ie=UTF8&z=14

    As you can see on the map near point C
    the Blanco river confluences into the San Marcos River in a little hair pin turn
    plus there's a dam just down stream so you really can't tell which direction the water is flowing.

    they took a wrong turn, they went up the Blanco River instead of passing it
    They went a mile and a half up the river, but when they got to rapids and were going up stream they realized they took a wrong turn and turned around.

    They paddled down stream but it got dark. They saw lights, pulled off the river, talked with a kind home owner then called us.
    They were cold, hungry, and wiser.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...5&ie=UTF8&z=13

    Our darkest fears didn't happen, everyone was fine and we called off the Martindale Man hunt.

    Re: Ande's Swimming Blog

    Thank God it all turned out okay Ande. I couldn't find my daughter for about a minute in a supermarket and I felt sick to the stomach. Heaven alone knows how you and your wife must have been feeling.

    On a side note: you live in a beautiful neck of the woods. What a wonderful place to grow up in. And it sounds like you have sensible kids so you don't have too much to worry about.
