The plan for the coming months

Last night we had Cathi's parents over for dinner.  Bill asked me if I was at the peak of my training yet for Catalina.  I couldn't honestly answer yes.  I figured I need to come up with a solid plan instead of just playing it by ear day in and day out.  

So here's the plan:

  • May 15-June 15th: average 25 miles per week
  • June 15th - July 15th average 28 miles per week
  • July 15th - August 3rd average 30 miles per week
  • August 4- 12 taper.  
This morning I was severely late getting in the pool, but followed the workout that Paul and James were already well into:

300 swim
400 - 8 x 50's free on :45
300 - 6 x 50's kick/stroke 
500 pull
200 - 4 x 50's fast/easy by 25 on :45
300 pull
100 - 2 x 50's sprint on :45
200 pull
100 - 2 x 50's sprint on :45
600 - 8 x 75's 1st round - weighted 75's, stroke, 2nd round - free/drill/free, stroke on 1:20
300 - 6 x 50's kick with fins

Did the above workout twice through and then finished with:

300 kick with fins
350 - free

7,250 yards total in 2:05
