I guess I probably should've loaded my water bottle with a whack of Zipfizz as there was nothing frothy or fresh about my attempt at my Zipfizz 200 workout -

Warmup Sets (1,000)

  • 1 x 200: IM, kick-drill by 25
  • 4 x 50: on 0:55, dolphin-flutter kick
  • 4 x 100: on 1:30, free swim, descend from ~1:21 to ~1:11
  • 4 x 50: on 1:15, going 25 fast from blocks (IM order) - 25 easy


Zipfizz 200s (2,000 set / 3,00 total)
The goal here is to really challenge yourself aerobically on the first set of 200s with an interval that is the fastest you can make 5 x 200s free on with high intensity. As the number of repeats get shorter and the rest more generous, the aim to get faster. I really accomplished neither and bailed on the last one.


  • 5 x 200: on 2:35, w/buoy and paddles
    • I thought based on last Sunday's test set that I'd be able to hit ~2:24s
    • Was 2:25, 2:27, 2:27, 2:29,2:31

  • 4 x 50: active recovery on 0:45, 0:50, 1:00, 1:30
  • 3 x 200: on 2:50, supposed to be descend
    • Was 2:32, 2:34, 2:37 ... just swimming and struggling

  • 4 x 50: active recovery on 0:45, 0:50, 1:00, 1:30
  • was supposed to do one more 200 FAST, but I called it a day


TOTAL: 3,000 SCM

  • After the 3 x 300 test set illusion of not being too out of shape from my vacation, I read my body's message loud and clear: I've got a slog to get back to fighting form!
