This morning I got up early (4:50 am) to get out to the SDRC to swim with the masters. It rained all night and was wet and cold this morning. I got there early enough to sit in the hot tub for a few minutes. I saw Coach Andrew setting up the lanes and started swimming the workout which he posted in the lane I was in:
300 Free, Drill, Kick
250 - Started the main set, but then had to start over, since other people in the lane were caught up.
500 - 500 Free Long strokes @ 80%
500 - 5 x 100's free on 1:45
500 - 5 x 100's free Pull on 1:30 (Had to use the crappy paddles and buoy that SDRC had)
250 - 5 x 50's free sprint on 1:00 (:35)
500 - 5 x 100's free descending (:10 rest between each one) (1:10, 1:10, 1;12, 1:15, 1:20) I went out too fast! I had Kris pass me at the third one. I wasn't getting faster but slower and more tired.
200 - 200 Cool down
Steve, Kris and Steve were all in my lane. About the same as far as speed goes. Not a bad workout, but much more broken up and faster than I've been doing. That's good. I think I'll start doing this on Monday mornings. Will swim tonight and then Tuesday and then taper on Wed and Thur. Meet on Saturday.
