Lap Swim Workout

Tuesday Trifecta

After my morning run of 14+ miles I hit the gym this afternoon.  Worked on my arms/chest and back.  Then recovered a bit before heading to the 7pm swim workout.  Got to say that by the end of the workout I was beat.

Luckily the swim workout wasn't all that bad. 

Warm Up

400 Swim

4x50's Kick

4x100's (50 Drill / 50 Swim)

So warm up was a 1,000 yards.  Which is the perfect amount of warm up.

Main Set:

4x150's on 2:05 1st one the 1st 50 fast, 2nd one the 2nd 50 fast, 3rd one the 3rd 50 fast and the last one was all fast (600)

15 secs rest

4x50's kick on 60 (200800)

15 secs rest

4x100's on 1:20 (400/1200)

15 secds erst

4x50's kick on 60 (200/1400)

opps...forgot about the 400 pull before th main set making it 2,800 yards.

50 easy of anything but free 2,850

3x150 (50 kick/50 drill/50 swim) did them im order (450/3,300)

Stroke Set:


4x50's on 60

4x25s kick on 35

did the first round back and second round all fly (600/3,900)

hmm...then we did a 100 breaststroke for torture.  then i wamred down a 50 Total yardage was 4,050.  I'm beginning to like swimming at the night workouts more than I do the morning.  It's not the workouts themsevles but the people. A lot of new swimmers who are excited about swimming are showing up at night.  The 6am swimmers pretty much are the same people I've been swimming with for 5 years.  So swimming at night has been a nice change of pace.  I'm sure I'll be back to mornings soon enough.  But for now I'm enjoying the change of pace and the new swimmers.
