It was such a picture perfect fluffy-white cloud day here in Arizona that I figured it would be fun to do some backstroke work. In addition, I can't seem to swim fly or breast and didn't want to get all depressed with my freestyle times!

Warmup sets (1,500 set)


  • 1 x 300: no breast IM, kick-drill by 25
  • 5 x 100: on 1:30, free pulll descend w/buoy, snorkel & paddles from 1:17 -> 1:12
  • 8 x 50: on 0:50, w/monofin going 10-12 fast SDKs off each wall then easy; on belly / on back by 25s
  • 6 x 50: on 1:00, #1 and #6 easy free w/snorkel, #2 to #5 IM back, descend from ~0:42 -> 0:38+


5 x 200 BACKBASE Test Set (1,250 set / 2,750 total)

  • 5 x 200: back on 3:30, goal is to swim strong and hold the same time (as close as possible) across all 5
    • 08-27-16 - SCM - 2:47, 2:45, 2:47, 2:47, 2:46

  • 5 x 50: active recovery w/snorkel, on 0:40, 0:45, 0:50, 0:55


TOTAL: 2,750 SCM

  • 'Twas a lovely day for a swim ... maybe not so much for the times.
  • Later on, after a fun matinee of Florence Foster Jenkins with the family, I hit the JCC for a brief run (1.3 miles), briefer drylands (10 pushups, some planking) and some nice steam rooming
