Sunday's Swim Report - More Ho Ho Ho Speedo Running

Frozen In The Pool

Brrrr!  47F!  It was a chilly morning on deck and in the pool.  So didn't feel like swimming this morning.  I shouldn't say that cuz' I did feel like swimming till I got in the water.  I was on my own and just not motivated.  I had a workout given to me but I sorta couldn't hack it on my own.  I ended up modifying it then just not even finishing it.

Warm Up
500 Mixed
200 Kick

Then 6x50's on 55 Breathing Every 3 going down and building coming back.  (300/1000)

5x100's on 1:20. They were suppose to be descending but I was 1:17/1:17/1:12/1:14/1:12.  Grrr…this is when I modified the workout or tossed the rest of the workout away.  (500/1500)

500 Pulling.  I was breathing every 3 for 2 lengths then breathing normal for 3 lengths.  (500/2000)

2x100's on 1:20.  I was a 1:12 then a 1:10.  (200/2200)

That was it I gave up.  Here is what the workout should have been after the 50's -
5x100 descending on 1:20

rest 40 sec

5x100 on 1:20 at the time of #5 above

rest 40 sec

5x100 on 1:20 - # 1 faster than above, #2 pace, #3 fastest yet, #4 pace, #5 faster

easy 200 back

6x50 on 1:00 with fins - swim fast


OH well.  Another time.  Actually I sorta didn't read past the 100's so never did see the easy backstroke and the last 6x50's.  Oh well at least I got in 2,200 yards this morning.

In other news from the US Masters Swimming website "Final Top 10 Lists for 2011 LCM season 12/16/2011.  The final Top Ten listing for the 2011 long-course meters (LCM) season is now available; this season ran from Oct 1, 2010 to Sept 30, 2011."  I did okay.  I got 10th in both the 200 butterfly and 200 backstroke. Topten
I guess that is better then getting none.  Hopefully I'll do better next year.  Still upset that I was 11th in the 1500 for my age group.  But it was 8 seconds difference so I really have my work cut out for me next year.
