Drafting the Drafting Postal Idea

Yesterday Josh and I worked together to fine tune an idea for a postal event that were trying to organize.  We still have some work to do, but we wanted to try out the idea as a dry run.  So we got Sue to join us out at SDRC to do the following (I'm working backwards in my workout chronologically here, but its all good):

1650 yards - We all take turns taking the lead for 200 yards.  The idea is to draft off the person ahead of you as much as possible.  Be right on their feet.  At the end of each 200 yards the leader drops off while the other two pull ahead and the leader then trails the pack.  The idea is that when you are leading you are going almost as fast as you can and allow everyone else to take advantage of the draft.  I started out:

200 Gords
200 Josh
200 Sue
200 Gords
200 Josh
200 Sue
200 Gords
250 Josh (Sprint that last 50!)

We did it in 22:26  However that was AFTER we did the following workout that Kris gave us:

Warmup:  300 free, 200 IM, 100 kick

200 pull free on 3:00
300 - 2 x 150's on 2:15 (50 free, one arm fly, free)
300 - 3 x 100's on 1:30 (25 free, 50 one arm fly, 25 free)
200 - 4 x 50's kick no fins on 1:00

250 - Put fins on and do 10 x 25's of kicking drills

Joined with Matt and did:

Timed free set - 750
225 - 3:00 free
300 - 2 x 2:00 free
225 - 3 x 1:00 free

Timed Stroke set - 7:50
225 - 3:00 one arm fly
300 - 2 x 2:00 back
225 - 3 x 1:00 breast

Then after it was all done I did 500 pull and then took off for lack of energy, plus a meeting that I needed to attend.

150 warmup before the 1650

Total: 5,850 in 2:30
