The LZR Racer Aquabeat
Back To The Butterfly

Tuesday Night Swim

I didn't swim this morning so I headed to the 7pm workout. Earlier today I hit the gym for my usual circuit weight routine. 

Warmed Up:
400 Swim
300 Pull
150 Kick (850)

Warm Up Set:
100 kick
75 Drill
50 Swim
25 Swim Build
Round 1 was free, 2 was breast and 3 was back.(750/1600)

Main Set:
50 easy free on 50
2x75's stroke on 1:10
100 easy on 1:30
200 Stroke FAST
Round one I did all the stroke butterfly, Round two I did all the stroke backstroke and finished up with round three all butterfly.  What was nice was that the coach broke us up into two groups for the last 200 stroke.  So at least for my 2nd 200 butterfly I didn't have to do as much one arm fly when passing and I didn't kill my hands on the wall.  After the first 200 my right hand was sick of the wall. (1500/3100)

50 easy (3150)

Pull Set
150 breathing 3/5/7
100 breathing 5/7
50 breathing 7 (900/4050)

10x50's on 50 3,5,7 and 10 fast choice.  I did those butterfly.  (500/4550)

100 warmdown (100/4650)

MTD Yardage: 30,700
MTD LCM:  3,700

YTD Yardage: 209,500
YTD LCM 25,000


Ha!  You'd be shocked in yourself if you did do it.  Since butterfly is all about getting into a pattern of stroke, kick and breathing by the time you are on the 2nd 200 fly you are all in sync.  It's just a matter of having a bit of mental strength at that point.

Second 200 fly! (So not in my vocabulary!)
