    ----------------------
    [Masters/Rec/2900 yds/60 min]

    Ran out of time with Greg, Jim, and Beth. The last one should have been a timed one, but we started a little late due to the age group team's practice. I felt good and made all of the descending efforts (even if just barely on the last one).

  6. Ozark LMSC SCM Champs

    by , November 6th, 2017 at 10:54 AM (Swimming Through Jello)
    11/4/2017 - Meet day!

    Warmup -
    200 sw/200 k
    8x50 k/dr-dr/b :60
    3x100 free 1:30
    100 EZ
    4x25 shooter off blocks
    100 EZ

    Events (with SwimSwam time conversions, helpful for me because I haven't swam SCM in decades)-

    50 Breast 31.23 (28.13)
    //Jammed the turn! Mistiming walls is a constant theme here, not used to SCM! Stroke rate was great and felt like I got stronger as the race went on.

    50 Fly 26.57 (23.93)
    //And glided into this turn. A little herky-jerky stroke but held it together well.

    50 Back 27.58 (24.84)
    //Spinning my wheels a bit, plus glided into the turn. Lots I could improve on this one.

    100 IM 1:03.48 (57.19)
    //Started running out of gas here - only a couple heats between 50 back and this. Consequently it was pretty sloppy.

    50 Free 25.31 (22.80)
    //Calf cramp! I think I will just reserve judgement on this event 'til next time :P

    Happy overall. Some times (50 breast and 50 fly) that I would be happy with in any context in college, and 50 back is as good or better than I'd do in season in college. Definitely ran out of gas by the end - my lactic acid buffering is apparently not as good as it used to be, who'd have guessed taking 6 years off and coming back to 2 hours in the pool a week instead of 20 would do that?

    About 200 warm up and 200 warm down between events, so probably a bit more than 3000 meters all told.

    by , November 5th, 2017 at 06:29 PM (The FAF AFAP Digest)
    Friday: Swim/SCY @ Pitt

    Warm up:

    450 various
    200 of drills and sculling
    8 x 25 shooters @ :40
    8 x 25 burst + cruise @ :45
    50 EZ

    1 x 100 EZ @ 3:00
    1 x 25 sprint @ 1:00
    1 x 75 EZ @ 3:00

    150 EZ

    Total: 2450

    This was basically the same workout that I did at Sewy last Friday. The 3rd round, I did the 50s at 100 pace (getting tired). But I did rip off a :23 in one of my fly with fins 50 AFAP efforts. And for the 25 fast kicks, I did shooters (no fins) and went 12 highs. I was happy with those times.



    Saturday:

    Drylands (sticking with just core and plyos)

    RC exercises
    good mornings
    single leg stand on bosu in streamline, 1:00 each leg
    warrior 3 pose on bosu, :30 each leg
    streamline crunches
    flutter kicks on back on bosu, 100
    med ball slams
    alternating rope slams, 3 x 30
    standing broad jumps, 5
    resisted (25 lb) standing broad jumps, 5
    altitude drops, 5
    extreme angle iso squat, 5:00
    hip thrusters
    russian twists w/plate, 25 x 2 x 25

    5 miles on treadmill

    1300 EZ in the pool

    It all seems so easy when you're at the gym. This am I woke up with a really sore upper back/shoulders from the explosive slamming ...




    Sunday: Swim/SCY/Solo @ BP

    Warm up:

    600 various
    100 scull
    100 caterpillar fly drill
    4 x 25 shooters
    50 EZ

    Main sets:

    6 x 30 burst off the blocks to 15m, cruise back
    100 EZ

    8 x (25 AFAP + 75 EZ) @ 3-3:30
    100 EZ

    16 x 50 @ 1:00
    odds = free w/Lochte turn
    evens = EZ kick
    100 EZ

    Total: 3100


    I was sore today but managed to get in some starts and drop dead sprints. My times were solid. I still feel like my turnover could use some improvement. But I've only been back in the pool two months and just re-started my AFAP sprinting. NEVERTHELESS, wait for it, I signed up for a meet! Maybe a bit too much chutzpah, but hey it's masters. So I will take my crappy arms and give it a whirl with expectations in check and seed times adjusted accordingly. Just some 50s to start ... I feel like I have a free pass for life with respect to dying at the end of races now. Lil Fort gave me an A+ for post adversity bravery.

  8. Full 400 IM test set!

    by , November 5th, 2017 at 04:40 PM (Of Swimming Bondage)
    After staying out of the pool on Friday while getting in a good treadmill run plus stretch cord PT session, I hit the JCC Scottsdale pool on Saturday afternoon (my home pool is undergoing some repairs) and took my first attempt at doing my whole 400 IM test set. It wasn't quite as painful as I anticipated:

    Warmup sets (1,750 set)

    • 1 x 400: IM, kick-drill by 25
    • 4 x 100: on 1:20, free descend swim, 1:12 -> 1:06
    • 4 x 100: on 1:45, IM kick descend w/board (1:32 -> 1:28)
    • 6 x 50: on 1:00, #1 and #6 cruise free, #2 to #5 IM order build
    • 8 x 25: on 0:30, odds easy, evens fast IM order
    • 1 x 50: easy


    400 IM Test Set (2,100 set / 3,850 total)


    • 8 x 50: on 0:55, 2 each stroke, build the odds and make sure the evens are at your target 400 IM race pace
      • My SCY splits to dream of would be 29+ fly, 31+ back, 36+ breast, 29.0 free
      • 10/10/13 - SCY - 29, 30+, 36-, 28- (awesome)
      • 10/17/13 - SCY - 31, 31+, 37, 28+ (sluggish start, OK finish)
      • 03/04/14 - SCY - 30, 32, 37, 30 (only fly feels good)
      • 03/15/14 - SCY - 29+, 32, 36, 30 (felt pretty cruiseful)
      • 12/30/14 - SCY - 30, 31, 37, 28
      • 02/12/15 - SCY - 31+, 30+, 36, 27+
      • 01/18/16 - SCY - 32+, 33+, 39, 30 (my foot cramped on the last 5 yards on the backstroke and I had to stop for almost 5 minutes to stretch it out)
      • 02/08/16 - SCY - 31+, 32+, 37, 29
      • 11/04/17 - SCY - 31, 35, 39, 29

    • 1 x 50: on 1:00, easy
    • 4 x 100: on 1:40, do as 100 IMs, descend to your target race pace divided by 4, ideally starting on #1 no slower than 12 seconds above that
      • SCY target would be to descend from 1:14+ to 1:02+
      • 10/10/13 - SCY - 1:11+, 1:10, 1:07, 1:03+
      • 10/17/13 - SCY - 1:12, 1:09, 1:06, 1:04
      • 03/04/14 - SCY - 1:08, 1:06, 1:07, 1:06+ (I forgot these were supposed to be descend and started hard)
      • 03/15/14 - SCY - 1:09+, 1:09, 1:05, 1:03++
      • 12/30/14 - SCY - 1:10, 1:08+, 1:06+, 1:04
      • 02/12/15 - SCY - 1:15, 1:12, 1:08, 1:05
      • 01/18/16 - SCY - 1:13, 1:11, 1:08, 1:05+
      • 02/08/16 - SCY - 1:16, 1:12, 1:09, 1:05
      • 11/04/17 - SCY - 1:18, 1:15, 1:12, 1:08+

    • 1 x 50: easy on 1:00
    • 2 x 200: on 3:00, build each stroke on #1, try to make #2 at your target 400 IM race pace divided by two (e.g., 2:05+ in SCY)
      • 10/10/13 - SCY - 2:28, 2:13+
      • 10/17/13 - SCY - 2:26, 2:15
      • 03/04/14 - SCY - 2:24, 2:22
      • 03/15/14 - SCY - 2:27, 2:15
      • 12/30/14 - SCY - 2:30, 2:18
      • 02/12/15 - SCY - 2:31, 2:17
      • 01/18/16 - SCY - 2:35, 2:17
      • 02/08/16 - SCY - 2:36, 2:17
      • 11/04/17 - SCY -2:40, 2:26

    • 4 x 50: active recovery on 0:45, 0:50, 0:55, 1:30
    • 1 x 400: IM on 5:20, hard
      • 10/10/13 - SCY from push - 4:36 (1:05, 1:09, 1:20, 1:02)
      • 10/17/13 - SCY from push - 4:38 (couldn't see splits in the sun)
      • 03/04/14 - SCY from push - 5:02 (if only the pool was SCM)
      • 03/15/14 - SCY from push - 4:40
      • 12/30/14 - SCY from push - 4:42+ (1:09, 1:11, 1:20, 1:02+)
      • 02/12/15 - SCY - 4:47
      • 02/08/16 - SCY - 4:46
      • 11/04/17 - SCY from push - 4:56

    • 4 x 50: active recovery w/snorkel on 0:40, 0:50, 1:10, 1:30


    Then I went 1 x 50 free fast from a push (0:27) and 1 x 50 easy

    TOTAL: 3,950 SCY

    Comments:


    • What was encouraging is that when I did a shorter version of this set a few weeks ago (http://forums.usms.org/entry.php?411...-have-expected), my 400 IM time at the end was 5:10. I was pleasantly surprised to get under 5:00.
    • I'm definitely on the right road back, but it's a long one.

  10. Gotta build back the blogging habit ...

    by , November 2nd, 2017 at 08:02 PM (Of Swimming Bondage)
    ... to coincide with my training habit. Training's been going well as I steadily build my way back. I'm increasing volume and intensity a bit, and getting a bit faster in workouts, but still far from where I was a year ago at this time. I'm going to try to get back into the daily habit of recording my workouts.

    I was working from my company's San Mateo office for the last two days and managed to add two new pools to my www.1001pools.com list. I haven't yet updated the pictures there, but I'm pretty good about posting pool pics on Instagram (brundageswims is my username).

    Last night I swam with the Masters team at the Peninsula Community Center in Redwood City and was happy to find it was a 25 meter pool. It was a good workout, but I'm so spoiled swimming by myself that it felt a bit open watery with 4-5 people a lane. I appreciated the coach giving me a little crap when I got out early (I stopped just shy of 3K SCM knowing I was swimming again this morning); I like it when coaches take an active interest in pushing their swimmers ... I still got out, though, and hit the hot tub and sauna instead of a 600 pace swim

    This morning I drove through the mountains, only about 20 minutes, to the coast so I could nab the pool at Half Moon Bay high school. This was a lap swimming time that required USMS membership, but was un-coached. I only did 1,750 SCY as that put me to 8,000 yard equivalents thus far this week. I'll be aiming to do two 4K workouts this weekend and hit 16K for the week, 1K above my 'max week' thus far this year. One of the things I focused on was doing a number of the drills that USMS COO & Coach Bill Brenner gave us this weekend at our LMSC Freestyle Clinic and Members Meeting - https://www.1001pools.com/single-pos...o-old-to-learn. That clinic reminded me how sloppy I can get and how much focus I need to give to form every workout.

    16 x 25, odds = EZ, evens = sprint @ :45
    -- My arms were really tired, so I did the sprints backstroke kick with fins
    -- I was able to hold 10-11s, which is pretty good for me on the 1:30 instead of the usual 3:00 that I do all out efforts on
    150 EZ

    Total: 3500


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    I've gotten in some good training lately. I've managed to do some AFAP 50s, which I had been avoiding. Last night was a ton of sprinting and I was beat after. Having Melissa in the next lane to race on the fast stuff really pushed me.

    Saturday events - 50s of all strokes, 100 IM, possibly a couple relays. It's Sprint King from college all over again! Just not going to do the High School Meet set the next day...

  18. Part of the Story (NovemberDecember 2017)

    by , October 31st, 2017 at 09:34 PM (SWIMMER Editorials)
    We spend a lot of time helping share the stories of our individual members, but U.S. Masters Swimming has a story, too.

    In two years USMS will begin celebrating its 50th anniversary. Of course, our longtime memberssome of whom were there at the beginningare excited about this. But our celebrations will include all our members. If you just joined USMS, you are now part of the story.

    You might wonder how our history affects your swimming. For starters, you might not be enjoying a daily swim workout if it werent for the efforts of John Spannuth, Ransom Arthur, June Krauser, and others.

    In her profile of Spannuth on page 18, Elaine K. Howley takes us back to when adults over the age of 25 were advised to approach exercise cautiously, as though they might endanger their health if they worked out too hard.

    We know better now. Thanks to advances in medicine and research, we know that vigorous physical activity has life-prolonging effects. Its also why nonswimmers are surprised when they find out your real agemany of you look a decade younger than your FINA age.

    Watching an organization spring up around the healthful pursuit of swimming has been fun for the early adopters, including Robert Beach of St. Pete Masters, who swam in the second masters meetheld in 1971and hasnt stopped since.

    Beach put his photo albums on long-term loan to the National Office, so we could scan and preserve them for generations to come. The images included in our profile on Spannuth are all from those albums.

    If you have a favorite image or two that tells not only your swimming story, but part of the overall Masters Swimming story, please reach out to uswed love to include copies in our archives and share them throughout the yearlong celebration in 2020.

    And they dont have to be from the 1970swell be celebrating Masters Swimming through all five decades of our history, so whether youve been with us for 50 years or five months, youre part of our story.
