Thursday February 21, 2013

Went 3000 yards yesterday, which was less than usual because the main set consisted of drop down 50s kick; I switched to fins after the first five and made it as far as :40.  Lifted weights at Life Time last night, having decided a few weeks ago that strengthening exercises needed to be part of my shoulder rehab.  The strategy seems to be working.  This morning I swam at UT in the main pool which was set up with an eight lane center course (two bulkheads) in preparation for the UIL state meet this week and the Big Twelve next week.  I shared a lane with Larry, Jason, Joe, Brad, and Sharon.  Whitney coached.

Warm up:
300 swim (fingertip drag), 300 drill with fins, 300 pull
Main set, best interval:
5 x 200 @ 2:30, held 2:23--my best set yet on this interval
200 easy
5 x 150 @ 1:52, held 1:47
200 easy
5 x 100 @ 1:12, held 1:07-1:08
200 easy
5 x 50 @ :35
200 easy
Final set:
6 x 150 as 25 fast from a dive/125 easy/25 fast; swam two of these and was very happy with my track starts so I stopped at that point because I didn't want to over stress my shoulder (which was feeling good)
