Tuesday November 22, 2011

Saturday's workout was cut short by hospital pages, so I finished with only about 2000 yards.  I swam 4000 at Barton Springs on Sunday with Anthony.  Yesterday's workout was another forgettable one; the main set was 8 x 200 @ 2:45, odds swim, evens pull, and I struggled to keep them under 2:30.  This morning I swam with Steve, Jeff, Kirk, David, and Tom.  Jordan coached.  I felt pretty strong on the last set of 100s, which was encouraging. 

300 swim, 200 kick, 200 pull
4 x (4 x 25 kick @ :30, 3 x 50 swim @ :50, 2 x 100 IM @ 1:30, 1 x 100 strong), IM order, with 1:00 break between rounds
2 x (4 x 100 @ 1:30, pull/swim); I swam all of these and held 1:08s.  I made a stroke correction which was suggested by Doug Russell, an age group coach at Nitro and Olympic gold medalist in the 100 fly in Mexico City (beating Mark Spitz).  Apparently I was shortening my stroke on my left side and hadn't realized I was doing that. 
100 easy
