Tom Shields' Olympic Hangover: Gold Medal Minute Presented by
Daily Swim Bit - Combatting Lap Swims & Other Swim Bits

Quick Sat Lap Swim

I put together a quick morning swim workout.  I gotta admit lap swimming is boring and I keep changing the workout once I hit the water.  But at least I'm swimming.

Warm Up:

300 Swim

Kick Set:

4x100's on 2 minutes one of each stroke

IM Set:

2 Rounds of

4x50's IM Switches on 60

2x100's IM on 1:45

2x50's easy kick on 60 (500/1000/1700)

Pull Set:

5x100's on 1:30 Free pulling (500/2200)

This wasn't the workout that I wrote down but it's the one I did.

Hey two swims in the first week of December and I'm ahead of a few months already.  With the closest pool being closed starting on Monday and my new job starting I really don't know what the month will be for swimming.  I am signed up for the R0wdy Gaines Meet in two weeks but I doubt I'll be able to go.  But we shall see.  I plan on doing a bunch of garbage yardage tomorrow to get my yardage up there.  Need to research a longer workout that won't bore me to tears.
