  3. Saturday Masters Workout 1/16/21

    Today's workout brought to you by Coach Paul. I have to say I'm a sprinter who hates sprint workouts, so all this fast stuff was not my jam, but good yardage!

    2X [
    1x200 swim @ 3:00

    12x50 @ :50
    Same pattern as 100's (I did IM order on the fast)

  4. Almost Friday - 3500scy

    Hey all - sharing the full set I intended to do today if I'd had more time, but I had to cut it short. This is a go-to workout for me when I haven't planned, you can easily change it up based on what you're feeling for the day. Only had 45 min today so I wasn't able to finish but I'll post the whole workout.

    1x500 Warmup (100 fr, 25 stroke RIMO)

    2x400 pull @ 5:20

    3x300 kick @ 4:30 w/ fins
    1: first 100 fast, the rest smooth
    2: middle 100 fast, the rest smooth
    3: last 100 fast, the rest smooth

    4x200 @ 3:00
    odd - IM
    even - FR

    5x100 free @ 1:15

    Total: 3500

    * I had to stop after the 4x200 and just do 100 easy cool down because my 45 min were up, but if you have time, keep the 100's! My total today was 3100 scy.

  5. Tuesday at a New Pool - 3200 scy

    I took a trek out to a different pool today because a masters friend of mine said it was $1 to swim and there are usually 20 open lanes with no time limit. He was right, and it was nice to actually have time to take breaks and warm down between sets. It's a little far so I don't think it's an everyday solution, but it was nice to not be rushed for once.

    Warmup (1000):

    2X [
    200 swim @ 3:00
    150 k/d/s by 50 @ 2:20
    100 IM drill @ 1:40
    50 build free @ 1:00

    Main (2200):

    2X [1st round no equipment, 2nd round fins
    Broken 400/300/200/100 as:

    300 swim, rest :20, 100 strong (80%) @ 6:00
    225 swim, rest :15, 75 strong (85%) @ 4:30
    150 swim, rest :10, 50 strong (90%) @ 3:00
    75 swim, rest :05, 25 all out fast @ 1:30

    100 easy

    Descend the 100/75/50/25 from strong to all out effort

    Rest 1-2 min between sets

  7. Wednesday 6 Jan - 2900 scy

    Most of my workouts these days are made for 45 min time slots, because that's what I get right now at my Y pool, so if you have more time, I'd suggest extending the warmup and warm down! I've struggled in these covid times with short warmups - I'm too old not to warm up!

    300 choice swim

    Happy New Year!

    I haven't been posting a lot of swim workouts in the past few months because of short and uncertain pool times, but I'm vowing to change that this year. Here was my first swim in 2021 - a masters practice, so credit goes to the coach and not me for writing this one:

    Main Set 1:
    12x75 @ 1:15 odd swim, even k/d/sw choice

  10. 100 Sandwiches!

    I needed something fun and challenging for yesterday - so I created this workout that can be done two ways - the "meat" or the "bread".

    I did the "bread" side, and it was a lot harder than it looked on paper!

  11. Distance Ladder Challenge

    I wrote this set last week and put it in my back pocket for a day when it felt right. Tomorrow and Friday I have scheduling conflicts with my usual workout time and may not be able to get in, so I thought today was a good day for a high volume yardage challenge when I'd be forced to rest a day or two afterward.

    For the long swims, you should be getting lots of rest - over a minute or right at a minute until the 600, and then 15-30 sec on the 400/200. For the 100's, start out at an interval that feels comfortable to stay long and smooth. For the 5x100, you should plan to get about 5 sec rest and the 3x100, just make.

    Good luck!

    Main (5500):

    1x1000 @ 15:00 w/ snorkel, pads, buoy - 50 sw, 50 dr

    9x100 @ 1:25 swim no equipment

    1x800 @ 12:00 w/ pads + buoy

    7x100 @ 1:20 swim no equip

    1x600 @ 9:00 w/ pads

    5x100 @ 1:15 swim no equip

    1x400 @ 6:00 pads + fins

    3x100 @ 1:10 *option to add fins

    1x200 @ 3:00 w/ fins swim

    1x100 FAST all out *option: fins or no fins

    W/D - 200 easy kick or more if needed

    Total: 5700
