Three Times The Sharm (Swim + Charm) Workout
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Three swims in one month, woah I'm on a roll. Hey, it's one more swim then I did in the month of March. I'm doing my best to squeeze in some swimming even if it's more of a warm up then a swim. So after co-teaching the 5:45 Group Power (weight training) class I headed right to the pool. My timing was perfect as a few of the lap swimmers were getting out when I arrived. The swimmers who swim with the local swim team coach was in the midst of a set. So I warmed up a 200 and just jumped in to whatever they were doing.
200 Warm Up (feeling the burn in the shoulders from the morning weights, ouchie)
3x100's on 2 minutes
4x50's on 60
1 3:16.1 200 1:38
2 1:19.3 100 1:19
3 1:16.0 100 1:16
4 1:12.8 100 1:13
5 :35.5 50 1:11
6 :35.3 50 1:11
7 :35.9 50 1:12
8 :34.9 50 1:10
That first 200 was the warm up in which I was stopping after every 50. Then I jumped right into the set. After everyone was done I asked what the set was and it was
2x200's on 4 minutes
6x100's on 2 minutes Descend in pairs of two. So 1st two same pace, then descend the next two keeping tht two same pace, then last two descending from the middle two. I didn't know so my times were anything close to that. Pretty much just warming up.
I then kicked 3x100's. I was going to do part of the set again. I wanted to swim 1,500 yards at least so I was going to swim 2x50's to get the arms back then 4x100's. But instead I was talking and decicded I needed to head home to get reading to teach spinning. Oh well, at least I got in 1,000 yards. I named the chart above UGH since that is how I feel. In four months I've logged in as many yards as I use to in one month. Small steps on my way back! That is my view, just slowly get back to swimming and swim whenever I can. 30 minutes, 20 minutes anything is better then zero minutes. Unless I get called into work to sub any other classes I'll swim 30 minutes before lunch tomorrow and maybe Saturday before my class. But we will see.
