The Secret Santa of Swimming Sets
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
Since I will be hitting one of the lap swims tomorrow as we don't have a workout at the WeHo Pool I was trying to think of a workout I'd want to do. Hmm...something fun but still a little bit of a challenge. Then I thought about how today was to be the 10x100's which I didn't want to do so I came up with a random fun way to do them. Last night I grabbed some paper and made little slips of paper as follows...
10 folded slips of paper of each of the following:
and 4 folded slips of paper of each of the following:
breathing every 3
breathing every 5
breathing every 7
breathing every 9
So I was thinking after the warm up I'd do either 50's or 100's for an hour. Before each 50 or 100 I'd pull a piece of paper and whatever is written on it would be how I'd swim it. I'm leaning towards doing 100's all on 1:45 which would allow me to do 30 in one hour and leave time for warm up and warm down sets. 30x100's on 1:45 all picked at random. Just like picking a Secret Santa or Snowflake. I know some of my team mates don't like gimecky workouts like this but I think it breaks up the routine. I may get bored 1/2 way into the set and change my mind. Then again lap swim may be packed and I'll just get out frustrated at the noodlers.
