I attempted my low rest workout #2 from this week's HVT workouts, with a little IM thrown in:

  • 1 x 400: 100 free swim, 200 IM k/d, 100 free swim
  • 3 rounds of:
    • 4 x 25: on 0:35, odds kick, evens drill, fly-back-breast by round
    • 3 x 50: descend
      • Rd 1: fly-free on 0:50
      • Rd 2: back on 0:50
      • Rd 3: breast-free on 1:00

    • 1 x 100: on 1:40, descend by round IM (1:22, 1:19, 1:16+)

  • 3 x 50: on 0:45, recovery pull
  • Main set:
    • 3 x 200: IM on 2:45
      • Goal was to be on the fastest interval you can just make
      • Went 2:36+, 2:38, 2:41

    • 4 x 100: on 1:40, active recovery pull
    • 4 x 150: free on 1:55
      • Goal was to be on the fastest interval you can just make.
      • I wanted that to be 1:50 and hold 1:45s (1:10 pace per 100)
      • It ended up being 1:55 and I went 1:48, 1:49, 1:51, 1:53

    • 4 x 100: on 1:40, active recovery pull

  • 1 x 50: cruise

TOTAL: 3,650 SCM

Commentary:

  • It is amazing how much a little dryland work takes out of me. I hit a morning core class at Lifetime and I could feel it big time today.
  • Tomorrow will be a better day.
  • I can't wait to watch the 400 IM showdown at women's NCAAs tonight!

    The problem is that you do drylands once every few months. If you did crunches+planks once ever... conference call?... I think they would have a lesser impact on your swimming.

    What a great race (although I wanted Leverenz to win.) I found it on the web as the B final was taking the blocks. Whew, just in time!

    Well, I have been pretty good about getting to 1 or 2 core classes a week this calendar year, but, yes, you are right about drylands in general.

    I resolve to someday focus on them ... maybe this fall after the OW season?
