I Hate Monday Morning Swim's
Monday, September 21, 2009
Another week of swimming is off to a start. I can't believe that this is the last full week of September. Fall is in the air. Well at least at 6am it's beginning to feel like fall. The rest of the day the temperatures in LA make it feel like summer. Steam is beginning to rise above the pool as the pool is getting warmer and warmer by the day and the air is getting colder.
Then we had a kick set which I was able to finish 3x75's kick plus a 50 of the 4th 75. (275/775)
3x100's 50 Drill / 50 Swim (300/1075)
400 Pull (200 Breath Control breathing every 3/6/any/7 then a 200 DPS)(400/1475)
500 Swim Pace (500/1975)
5x100's on 1:35 Descend (500/2475)
50 easy (50/2525)
For my 500 pace I started the first 100 a bit slow at about a 1:17 then got on a 1:15 pace. The last 100 always seems to be faster but I believe it was all on the same pace. I don't get to see the clock during the swim to after my turn so that is always a second or two off. Basically I do my flip turn and look up after my streamline to see the clock at the end of the lane. My 5x100's I started with a 1:16 and finished up with a 1:05.
Stroke Warm Up Set:
3x50 kick / 25 drill / 25 swim IM order (300/2825)
Stroke Main Set:
50 Build Stroke
I did the 50 and 25's butterfly. I forgot the intervals but at that point I was swimming on my own so I changed the intervals as I felt they were a bit too easy. Too easy and I wanted easy math intervals. (400/3225)
Then I did 3x25's fast butterfly. These were to be on 45. But at each 25 other lanes joined me so we were almost going on the coaches send off. Some of the other lanes only did two and others only one. I just swam another 25 to the other end of the pool and got out (100/3325)
I felt pretty okay n the water. Better than I did last week. The rest of the week I'm trying to get back on a regular swim scheadule with one LCM workout tomorrow morning. Wahoo!
