Tuesday Night Swim
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
Even though I did swim just on Friday it was beginning to feel like I haven't been in a pool in months. So odd but it really did. Luckily practice wasn't so bad and the warm up / drill part seemed to take up a good portion of the workout. After running and lifting this morning don't know if I would be able to take a full workout. In fact the achy calves from this morning came back to a full blown cramp at the end of workout. Doh!
Started off swimming a 500 warmup then a 150 pull. We then did 8x25's two of each stroke working on our underwater pool. Then we did 2x75's butterfly/back/breast on 1:20. And I think 3x50's of switches butter/back, back/breast and breast/free. With this and some kick drill sets the warm up was around 45 minutes. We did 2x200's free broken 75 kick / 50 drill / 75 distance per stroke. Then 2x200's IM one kick and one drill. Warm up was also 1,550 yards.
Three Rounds of the following (continious)
2x25's on 30 (1st round fly, 2nd round back and 3rd round breast)
100 IM on 1:30
200 distance per stroke free on 2:40
150 free build on 2:10
100 free fast on 1:25
50 free fast on 45
The first round felt great and the second round I still was feeling strong. But in the third round as I pushed off for the 100 I got a bad cramp. I got to the other end and pulled myself out of the pool but I couldn't stand up to walk the cramp out. So I actually missed the 100 and the 50 of the last round. But I was feeling so good otherwise. So mad! Minus my 25 of cramping I did 1600 yards of this set. (1600/3,150)
After walking out the cramp I got in swam a 50 and pulled a 200 IM then warmed down a 100. (350/3500) I plan on swimming in the morning. Hopefully my cramp will go away in my sleep.
