The last set kicked my ass, especially following on the heels of yesterday's speed workout. Lactate was really spiking in last round. Saving the kicks for last is killer that way.

Swim Science article where Mullen postulates that swimmers need to focus on athleticism, not just neural training of swim skills: http://www.swimmingscience.net/2012/...-athletic.html

Need to sign up for Warrenton meet: https://www.ClubAssistant.com/club/m...1481&smid=3731. Still planning on 4 x 50.

Really bummed that Fort Son told me he thinks he has mono. He's waiting for results of a blood test. He had really improved his erg scores with some real college coaching. He does not have the type of personality that will deal with mono very well.

    This is garbage. You're probably not surprised I think that, by now. No definition of "athleticism" or "overall fitness." The latter is an oxymoron, really. The word "fit" has two sides: thing A fits thing B. Thing A can't just have fitness on its own.

    He defines it right at the beginning. Athleticism = strength, agility and flexibility. Seems like these 3 things (thing A) would foster fast swimming (thing B).

    There also seems to be an underlying implication that athletes tend to select other sports.

    You would just love this meet in Spokane this summer then:

    I noticed the order of events really sucks for a sprinter type person. As well as sticking the 200 Fly at the very end for me!

    Why would they put all the 50s together like this? Especially knowing that our LMSC are very lightly attended as well!!

    1) 400 M Freestyle _____________
    2) 50 M Butterfly ____________
    3) 100 M Backstroke ____________
    4) 200 M Breaststroke ____________
    5) 200 M Freestyle _____________
    10 Minute Break
    6) 50 M Backstroke ______________
    7) 50 M Breaststroke ___________
    8) 100 M Butterfly ___________
    9) 50 M Freestyle ___________
    10) 200 M Backstroke ___________
    10 Minute Break
    11) 100 M Freestyle ___________
    12) 200 M Ind. Medley ___________
    13) 100 M Breaststroke ___________
    14) 200 M Butterfly ___________

    15a) 200 M Medley relay
    15b) 200 M Mixed Medley relay
    16a) 200 M Freestyle Relay

    That's a really strange order of events. Not only are all the 50s close together, but the 50s and 100s are close together. Very odd and anti sprinter!
