The FAF AFAP Digest

10/30, Sunday, May 6

Rate this Entry
Swim/SCY/Solo @ Dartmouth:

Only had about 55 minutes to swim. So I tried some ultra short distance training, and it packed a punch.

Warm up:

600 various
12 x 25 shooters w/fins
4 x 50 fly drills

Main Set:

Did all reps with an approx 10/30 second work to rest ratio:

16 x 25 breast dolphin, no pullout
-- sprinted to about the 20 yard line and cruised in, rested on the wall until 30 seconds elapsed
-- started losing DPS the last 4-5
100 EZ

8 x 25 dolphin kick w/board & fins
-- heart rate went up and stayed up right from the start on this set
50 EZ

8 x 25 dolphin kick on back w/fins
-- heart rate still up
-- only stayed under 4-5 quick kicks and then kicked on back on the surface
50 EZ

100 EZ

Total: 2200

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Assuming I sprinted to the 20 yard line most efforts, that's still 640 yards of AFAP work in 55 minutes. It was somewhat mentally difficult to keep blasting away on short rest. And the times on my AFAP efforts were likely slower than when I'm doing 25s @ 3:00. This type of training is definitely most easily adapted to kicking where you can breath freely.

Off to PRP soon. Ouch.

I can't feel Saturday's weights.

    I've been busy!

    Do you know what PRP is? It's pretty disabling for a couple days. I'll be happy if I can get in a streamline position tomorrow.

    I just plan on cruising Wed. anyway.

    PRP = Potentially Responsible Party in legal/environmental parlance.

    Hope the platelets help your shoulder! Seems like pretty interesting/promising therapy.

    Or Painful Ripping Pricks.

    I hope it works. The doc seems more worried about the neck than the shoulder. I'm more worried about the shoulder.
