Slowly swim by swim I'm feeling better in the water after being a bit sporadic this past month in swimming. This mornings workout was mostly freestyle and even though my swim workout times were a bit slower than I'd like they were at least consistent.
500 (i broke it up as a 200 swim/200 pull/100 swim)
5 Minutes Kicking. The coach would blow the whistle and you'd kick fast then she'd blow it again and you went slow. I think it was 20 secs fast and 40 secs slow. I did a 300 total. Some of the slow parts I barely kicked and just floated. (300/800)
3x100's 50 Drill / 50 Swim Drills: One Arm, Fingertip Drag and Fist (300/1100)
4x200's on 2:45 1st 200 the last 100 was fast, 2nd 200 the first 100 was fast, 3rd 200 the middle 100 was fast and the 4th 200 was fast. I was coming in at 2:21's for these. Plenty of rest but the time was pretty slow.
rest 1 minute
8x100's on 1:25 Same pattern as above but by 50. I was doing 1:11's. A little off my workout time for a set like this but at least I was consistent. (1600/2700)
1x75 kick / 50 drill / 25 swim Choice of Stroke / Non Free. I did this backstroke (200/2900)
50 on 60
4x25's on 30
I did all three rounds backstroke. Since I've been out of the water of late my butterfly is pretty bad. Something to work on in July. (450/3350)
I then warmed down a 100. (100/3450) Working out in June has been a bit sporadic so my goal for July is to get back on track. I haven't done weights in ages so that is another thing I need to get back on track. Spinning (24 Cycle) is something I know I can skip so I want to get back to swimming Tuesday or Thursday nights. Those workouts can be a bit harder then the morning workouts so I need to hit those up more. A new month is almost here so new goals. Swim more and faster then June.
