2100 Yard So Called "Easy" Workout

It should have been an easy workout but when you haven't been swimming at all any sort of swim workout is not an easy one.  Luckily some of the swimmers are going to a Senior Swim Meet next weekend so it was a taper-ish workout.  

Warm Up:

1000 Yards anyway you want but a 300 of it must be kick.  I used this chance to play with my Sporti Fins.  I started with like a 100 swim then pulled with paddles for a 300.  Then 300 kick 50 fly/50back/100free/50back/50fly.  Then I did a 100 drill with fins.  Then some 50's back with fins.   I started before everyone so I did 1,200 yards.

Main Set:

6 Rounds -

75 Drill/Kick/Swim by 25

25 Swim on your 200 pace

25 Swim on your 100 pace

25 Swim on your 50 pace

Rounds 1-3 one stroke then switch for 4-6.  We were at the coaches sendoff I'm guestimating that the the 75's were on 1:30 and 25's on 30 based on the rest I got.  (900/2,100) 

I did butterfly for my first round and back for the last.  OUCH!  I'm outta shape but at least I got in a swim.  Pretty much I don't see myself swimming that much in the next two months.  Between work, cold weather and the pool being closed for 2 weeks next month I just won't be swimming.  I'll just swim whenever I get a chance.

I really wanted to break 100 miles for the years but that seems far off right now.  I'll have to make a Sunday of garbage yardage to even come close.  Maybe two garbage yardage swims!
