Butterfly Killer Swim Set

Killer Butterfly or Butterfly Killer, either way I did a bit of butterfly tonight.  As I am now moving into my taper period for the LA Marathon I figured I'd put in one hard swim.  Next week I plan on swimming two or three workouts but plan on holding back.  I figured I'd swim tonight and get a good night sleep before my last long run tomorrow.  Although my legs are a bit tired so don't know how tomorrow will go.  During the kick set I almost regretted showing up for swim practice.  But I was in the pool so I stayed and swam for 70 minutes before getting out.

Warm Up

400 Swim / 300 Pull / 100 Kick (700)

Then we did a warm up set of 3 rounds:

50 Kick 

50 kick / 50 Drill

50 Kick / 50 Drill / 50 Swim

Round one I did butterfly, round two was free and round three was back.  I did skip a 50 kick to take a pee break.  (850/1550)

Then I think we went right into the main set.  I don't remember another warm up set so I guess we did.

200 Free on 2:50

2x100's IM on 1:30

4x50's Choice on 50 descending (i did these butterfly)

8x25's Fly on 30 descending 1-4 then 5-8

take an additional 30 secs. rest

200 Free on 2:50

2x100's IM on 1:30

4x50's Fly on 50 descending

8x25's Choice  on 30 descending Fly on 30 descending 1-4 then 5-8 (i did these butterfly)

there was one more round like the first round but I did 100 warmdown and got out.  I was feeling tired.  I don't know if I could have done another round all fly.  Maybe if I had mixed it up but really wanted to get home.  1600 yards plus the 100 warmdown (1700/3250)  

The workout was 3,250 yards.  Not bad.  The funny thing was that we only had 3 fast swimmers.  Tonight's coach was the usual Monday coach who switched with the new Thursday coach.  I also thought it was funny that none of the "fasties" who complained that the old Thursday coach was too easy showed up tonight.  Bunch of fucktards!

Tomorrow I'll sleep in a bit and go on a run of some sort tomorrow.  I have a few ideas in mind so we'll see how I feel.  Figure I can always go on a long run on the Sunday and really really taper for the rest of the week.  But I should get the run out of the way tomorrow.
