A-bunch-a 200s

Rate this Entry
One week has passed and so it's time to start doing workouts that start to look more like real workouts. There are a number of favorite workouts / test sets that I have in rotation on a task list and my ZipFizz 200s workout came up today (e.g., I didn't feel like really benchmarking myself today and wanted to go for more volume in as stupid-easy a way as possible, so here's what I did in SCM:
  • 1 x 400: IM, kick-drill
  • Took maybe a minute rest and then went through the rest of the workout on intervals
  • 5 x 200: on 2:40, free w/buoy, paddles, snorkel (kind of descend 2:33 -> 2:28)
  • 1 x 100: on 2:00, IM kick w/board
  • 4 x 200: on 2:45, free w/buoy, snorkel (kind of descend 2:35 -> 2:29)
  • 1 x 100: on 2:00, IM kick w/board
  • 3 x 200: on 2:50, free w/snorkel (kind of descend 2:36 -> 2:34)
  • 1 x 100: on 2:00, IM kick w/board
  • 2 x 200: on 2:55, free w/buoy, paddles - both at 2:29/30
  • 1 x 100: on 2:00, IM kick w/board
  • 1 x 200: on 3:00, free w/buoy, about 2:30
  • 1 x 100: on 2:00, IM kick w/board
  • 1 x 100: easy dolphin dive w/snorkel

TOTAL: 4,000 SCM


  • Today was all about just getting in some yardage and focusing on fast turns. I watched some of the video archives from Nationals and was appalled at how slow my turns were. Now, coaches have told me this for years, I've known it and I've sometimes, kind-of-sort-of focused on it, but I really need to fix my very bad habit of lifting my head and looking at the cross on the wall. I think I'm only going to think about my turns for the month of May.
