Joe's Workout Of The Week
Monday, November 18, 2013
Here is Joe's little workout of the week Once again I apologize for the formatting. The numbers to the right are how many times you swim the part. Like 3x500's on 6 minutes (yeah, Joe is crazy) or 8x25's fly (yeah, he's getting crazier). The whole workout is 3,850 yards. OUCHIE!
My name is Joe Denton, I am a 41 year old swimmer in Seattle Washington. I've been swimming competitively since I was 11 (with an 8 year break in the middle somewhere) and find the pleasure to be worth the sacrifice. I swim with a few local master's teams in the Seattle area and also on my own due to scheduling conflicts. Because of that, I end up writing a lot of my own workouts which is something I've recently discovered I really enjoy. I end up reading a lot about the training techniques that are being developed and in my free time watch training videos on YouTube and other sites. My workouts tend to focus on stroke as I am primarily and IM'er, but I also do a fair amount of distance free training as I swim a few open water distance events as well (but those workouts tend to be in the spring/summer).
