Swim Workouts

  1. Workout from 8/2/11 - a ladder... kind of

    This is my ladder set. It's not a very good ladder. Some of the rungs are broken.

    200 Swim
    200 Kick
    200 Pull

    7x100 Free
    600 hypoxic, each 100 breathe 3-5-7-9
    500 Kick (25 easy/25 fast, 50 easy/50 fast, 75 easy/75 fast, 100 easy/100 fast)
    4x100 Free
    300 IM
    200 eggbeater
    100 Free

    200 easy


    On the 200 I was just going to do breaststroke kick until I remembered that when I stopped playing water polo this year, my breaststroke really suffered. So I think trying to maintain a good eggbeater helps (and mine needs some work to get back to "good").

    I was pleased that I managed to get faster each set of 100s. I got out of the habit of descending until about a week ago, and I forgot how important that really is.
