500s

Went online looking for a 6000 yard workout and not only did I find it, but found a good article on how to improve your 1650 time. Speed work is important and that's what this workout does. I figure if I could maintain 1:15/100 yard for my 1650, I would break my PR and end up with a 20:37 which would be great. So that's what my goal is gonna be at the meet next weekend.

600 freestyle
200 backstroke
200 breaststroke
500 - 10 x 50s on :45 descend 1-5 x 2
500 freestyle recover
500 - 5 x 100s on 1:25 (get 1:18 on all)
500 freestyle recover
500 - 5 x 100s on 1:25 (get 1:15 on all)
500 freestyle recover
500 - 5 x 100s on 1:30 (get 1:14 on all)
I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to meet the goal times on all these sets, but not only did I meet them, I went a few seconds under a few times. I was very pleased that I didn't bonk. 5x100's goes by pretty fast and then I get 500 yards easy to recover, so this actually was a great workout!

1,000 pull, recovery
500 - 10 x 50s (25 easy, 25 sprint) on :30

6,000 Yards total
