Masters Swimming 101: How to Circle Swim
Yuck, Gym Pool Swim Workout

My Once In 30 Day Swim Workout

Well is consistence is the key I'm right on track of not swimming.  My last swim was exactly 1 month ago on Feb 19th!  So today I had to hit the water. IMG_1085 Mind you I only did 2,000 yards.  I have no excuse not to swim as I have a pool at work.  Mind you it's set at 88F but it's a pool.

I grabbed an old workout given to me by one of the VAST Coaches.

Warm Up

400 Free

8x50's Kick on 60

8x50's Pull on 60 (1,200)

IM Set:

4x50's fly/back, back/breast, breast/free and free/fly on 60 (200)

100 IM on 1:45 (100/300)

2x50's Kick on 60 (100/400)

Rest 30 Seconds

4x50's fly/back, back/breast, breast/free and free/fly on 60 (200/600)

100 IM on 1:45 (100/300/700)

2x50's Kick on 60 (100/400/800/2000)

2,000 is not much but I'm going to use this as my base workout as I'm going to try to get one workout a week at the gym pool.  I'll just give myself more rest or add in more kick to cool down.  But I need to swim again.  I need to reset.  Work is crazy as in hours but not as in busy.  But It's finding the will to get in the pool.  I will admit I don't like gym pools but gotta do it.  Even if I swim at least 30 minutes.  Gotta get in swim shape.  It's my sanity.
