16,500 yards from Phelps logbook

Found this workout which claims to be taken from Michael Phelps logbook, but I enhanced it to give me even more yardage. Starting at 9 instead of 8.

Here's what I did in the morning (got in the water at 5:40am):
  • 900 - 1 x 900 free stretch

  • 1600 - 2 x 800 free

  • 2100 - 3 x 700 free

  • 2400 - 4 x 600 free

  • 2500 - 5 x 500 free push it a little


Ended up circle swimming the first half of this. Which is good cause it forces me to put on the after burner when passing the other two in my lane. After about an hour they moved to other lanes that cleared up.
When I got to the 500's, there was a fast woman in the next lane who made me keep a good pace and not take it easy. Was only able to get a couple feet on her per 50. Pretty fast lady.

9500 yards for the morning

Here's what I plan to do to finish up the workout this evening at SDRC while Austin is at the club.

  • 2400 - 6 x 400 free on 6:00 hold 5:30

  • 2100 - 7 x 300 free

  • 1600 - 8 x 200 free on 2:50 hold 2:40

  • 900 - 9 x 100 free on 1:25 hold 1:20
