Saturday September 22, 2012

Today I swam one of my best workouts in a long time.  This was a nice surprise after Fast Friday's practice which consisted of 12 x 100 @ 5:00 with 100 active recovery after each one.  I managed to hold 1:15-1:16 for eight of them, which was a bit slower than I would have liked, before leaving for work.  This morning I shared a lane at Mabel Davis with Jason for the first half and then joined Tyler, Ande, Jeff, and a few others when the UT men arrived for their practice.  The weather and the water temp (79) were both perfect. I had a grande latte beforehand since we didn't start until 8.  And I didn't have my pager.  Whitney coached.

Warmup:
4 x 250 (200 free/50 fly, 50 back/200 free, 200 free/50 breast, 50 free/200 IM)
Main set:
4 x (3 x 200 @ 3:15/1 x 100 easy), descending each round;  averaged 2:50 in round 1, 2:48 in round 2, 2:44-2:45 in round 3, and 2:40, 2:40, 2:38 in round 4 (better than the Fast Friday 200s on 8:00 a few weeks ago)
Pull set:
2 x 150 pull (buoy only) @ 2:30, breathing every 7
4 x 150 pull (paddles only) @ 2:00--think we did 2:10 instead; elbow felt OK
2 x 150 pull (buoy only) @ 2:30, breathing every 7
100 easy

5100 meters

On Monday we return to the UT swim center.  According to the new schedule we will be swimming 5-6:30 on Mondays, 6:30-8:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays (a late start, but I will skip one of these since I need an off day),  6-7:30 on Wednesdays and Fridays, and 7:30-9:00 on Saturdays which will work out well for me.
