Year Three: The Road Back

Test Set - Kick-Style

Rate this Entry
For today's workout, I was planning to mainly kick the first part and see if I could do the 20x50 Free test set at the end of the workout. As the workout got underway, however, I had to rethink my plans as my shoulder was fairly achy from the beginning. Therefore, I did a little free in the workout and did the test set as a 20x75 Kick on 1:30 (wearing short fins). I was able to hold 1:11's throughout (and finished on a 1:08). Pretty happy with that, but slightly bummed that my shoulder wasn't up to the test set. Anyway, here's what we did today:

100 Warm-Up
1 x 200 KIck on 4:00
1 x 50 Drill on 1:05
1 x 200 One-Arm Fly w/ fins on 4:00
1 x 50 Kick on 1:05
1 x 200 Kick on 4:00
1 x 50 Kick on 1:05
5 Sets - all w/o fins
- 1 x 25 on :30 Kick
- 1 x 25 on :30 Drill
- 1 x 50 on 1:00 Swim-Build Speed
20 x 75 Kick on 1:30 Predictor Set - Hold Best Ave. (w/ fins held 1:11s)
100 Cool-Down
Total Meters: 2950

On another happy note, I reset my Go the Distance goal to 250 miles (down from the 500 miles originally) and have still been behind since the beginning of the year. I am now within 5 miles of my goal pace. Of course, the weekend is coming.....

Enjoy your swims today!
