Joe's USRPT Swim Workout

I tried something brand new this week. Not sure if you’ve heard of it, but I have been doing some research on USRPT (http://usrpt.com/mini-guide-to-usrpt/) so I finally decided to do it.

The workout style is much different than I am used to and not only required some physical adjustment but a LOT of mental adjustment. I’m one who is more prone to yardage than the short stuff, so this was a quite an adjustment.

I do have to say though that I enjoyed it. it was HARD, but I enjoyed it. The whole workout took about an hour and is just about 2600 yards. The key is to find your pace and stick to it. Harder than you think. J Enjoy! USRPT_Swim

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).
