Holy Faster: 2009 NCAA Division I & III Qualifying Times

Friday Night Swim

I'm beat!  Started off with about a 250 warm up as I was being chatty with a few folks on deck and in the pool.  We then went to the deep end to do some deep end verticle kicking and ab work.  I know some people don't think that we should be doing this in workout but I'm indifferent.  We then did a 25 and 2x50's freestyle with a six beat kick.  We then did 8x25's on 30.  Odds were short axis stroke of choice which would be butterfly for me while the evens were long axis stroke of choice which would be backstroke for me.

Main Set:
4x75's on 1:20 25 stroke / 50 free.  I did breaststroke for my choice to get it out of the way.
2x100's on 1:25 free
4x75's on 1:20 50 stroke / 25 free.  I did the backstroke for my choice of stroke.
2x100's on 1:20 free
4x75's on 1:20 all stroke.  I did these butterfly.  For some reason I felt like crap swimming fly tonight.  My back was stiff. 
2x100's on 1:20 free.

Then I warmed down a 200 pull without paddles.  Actually I've noticed I started to use the paddles less and less.  It depends on who I swim with as some people love the paddles.  Some of the coaches think that those swimmers use them as a crutch and some do.  But using paddles do help with stroke technique.

Well that is it.  Time for some dinner.
