The more fish like members post their daily swim workouts in here. We start a new thread every month. Mostly swimming, but sometimes it gets polluted with dryland work by Dr. TC and JasoninHalifax. They are fast, so they get a pass. :P

I'm the slow swimmer with aspirations of being less slow.

Hey! I've been good lately :-P

In fact, its mostly that I haven't been doing much at all. The cold from Hell has struck our house. I haven't been able to breathe in 2 weeks, and my wife just texted me from the doctors office, the cold wound up causing an ear infection and perforated eardrum. 10 days of antibiotics for her, and possibly a trip to the ENT specialist...

Ugh! I've lucked out so far. I had a small cold right before US Thanksgiving. Fortunately, it dissipated in 3 days. Right at the point that I was going to ask my Dr. how much Afrin I can take before I get addicted.

I'm really hoping that mine become swimmers, although the boy child had a good arm on him at 2 years old (hes 3.5 now). So he'll probably take to something that requires good hand-eye coordination. But maybe, just maybe, he'll want to follow in his old man's footsteps. (he gonna be big, too)

The girl is still pretty clumsy. There's hope for her....

50s day.

Wu: 325 straight / 25 recover

Ms: 30x50 usrpt @43s, failed at #10, 17, 20.

Finished out the remainder of the set at 47s on 10s rest.

Felt ok. Was a bit disappointed in the lack of progress. Same pace as last week, and same failures.

3300 yards in 61Ā° water. Wore my warmest wetsuit, DeSoto T1, and was almost too warm. Face, fingers and toes were cold, though.

This week, I have been using swims to just decompress/decouple from the pace of work at my startup. Generally the swims have been structured as

500-800m free warmup
200-500m kick with fins (on back, or dolphin alternating 50's)
100m kick with board
8x50m as 25m fly hard-25mback easy
1x400m IM (alternating hard 25 and easy 25 for each stroke)
400m as 1x200 fly alternating hard and easy lengths, 1x200m recovery

If I have time I throw in a bunch of 200IM's and tack on 50m of free to each (so four of them gives me 1000m).

I have a swim meet this weekand and will be swimming

100 fly
100 back
100 breast
100 free

plus

50 fly
50 free

and 50 fly and 50 free in Medley relays.

They are also having a fun 50 kickboard event.

The grouping of 100's should give me a really good indication of what my current potential is in the 400IM if I were to do a good 400IM where I execute all stroke (of course derated). I have never raced standalone 100 back and 100 breast. I think the 100 breast I have to be careful that I don't overcook things for my bad disc as it is always fickle doing the breast up and down spine motion with groin/psoas doing back and forth coupled with a bit of sideways swing. That seems to put pressure on the weak areas.

This is such a world different from be a "specialist" at half IM racing (which was always my best distance).

HI Tom, I remember when you said you were going to start usrpt I think earlier this year and would be interested in how you feel your progress has gone. I read some of your posts in the USRPT thread but wouldn't mind a honest evaluation of if you feel it has improved your swimming or hindered it.
All the best Chris
