2009 SCY Planning

Rate this Entry
Today's Wed Mar 11th, 2009 my next 2 meets are:

South Central Zones,
16 days away / 2 weeks 2 days &

2009 SCY Nats in Clovis,
58 days away / 8 weeks 2 days

I'm now training for speed & strength, which is like tapering. I'm done with aerobic & distance training for this season.
Might do some gentle aerobic sets, but the fastest intervals I'll do is 1:15 / 1:20 instead of 1:05 / 1:10

I plan to train through zones,
might rest a day, 2 or 3 for it.

My goal is to
1) swim faster times in practice,
2) get stronger, &
3) stay healthy & injury free.

The best way to get stronger & faster is to not get broken down from hard swimming training.

I'll rest 7 to 14 days for Nationals

training will be similar to what I did just before 2008 nationals

Times will tell

2009 South Central Zone USMS Championships
Friday March 27 - Sun March 29, 2009
16 days away

May 8 - 10
58 days away

    did you mean rest from the pool or "rest" from aerobic training?

    Isn't it a little late to plan for 2008?
