I finally feel like I can participate in these. Yay :)

Tired from yesterday, so I did


100 warm
10x100 on 2:00 in 1:30-1:32
200 steady, 200 steady, 100 steady
10x50 on 1:05 in ~:42
100 cool


For 2200scy


I'm so proud of my 30x100 last week, hoping to do something similar tomorrow, and soon it will be time to chop the interval from 2:00 to 1:55. Excellent.

Full report to come. Short report.

RealAB is overall masters Canadian Champ in 200IM, 100 fly, 200 fly, 800 free, 1500 free....I may have missed a few as I have lost track of all his wins.

The overall Canadian Champ takes me under his wing, me the last place finisher in almost all my events.....100 fly, 200 fly, 100 IM, 200 IM, 400 IM, 400 free, 1500 free. Day 3 was the hard day.....400IM, 200 fly, 1500 free...I screwed up on the 400 IM and got DQ'd with a leg spasm issue on the breast leg....oh well, but I got my 400 IM time down to 7:22. My 200 fly was my "A race" and I out touched my competition pacing perfectly and surging in the last 25m. Time was only 3:30, but it felt hard at altitude.

yes, my times are slow, but you start somewhere. I will get better with another year in the dolphin tank.....next year's goals to be 200 fly down below 3:15, 400 IM below 7 min and 200 IM down below 3:15. If I get a laser spine surgery, I can easily get there once my left leg starts working like a real human. In the mean time, it's like racing with 3.5 good limbs with half of my left leg being a drag chute on every stroke!!!

Well my coach finally got back into the water with me today after surgery ( 6 weeks ago) to reconnect his hamstring to his glute. I'll set the stage for you he can only can kick with one leg and can only touch turn with a one leg push off and solidly put me back in my place.

800m warm up choice
8 x 50m @ 60

Main set descend from set to set.
8 x 200m @ 3:00 , 2:44/2:48
8 x 100m @ 1:40 , 1:19/1:21
8 x 75m @ 1:15 , :59/1:02
16 x 50m @ :50 , :38/ :41

Cool down 300m
5300m.

Thanks to everyone for the good wishes, but really this is a colective team effort by all you guys trying to help me go from a deer floundering upstream to some type of a aquatic mammal. Monty, you are right, that hanging out with top swimmers like Bo was really helpful. Little tips from top swimmers really made a diff in the event (200 fly) that out touched the other guy for the medal. I was so excited that I spent 100 minutes back in the pool this morning at the Repsol center trying to incorporate all the great advice.

But seriously, why did I take so long to go in some swim meets. Unlike FOP roadies who give you attitude (sorry for anyone who is a FOP roadie), FOP swimmers of all forms are totally inviting (as all of you have been on these threads) to get other multi sport athletes in the start blocks. Hopefully more tri guys join me. I realize I was "forced" into learning all this swimmer stuff, but it has been a very enjoyable exercise as you guys can likely tell from these threads.

Dev

PS. In my usual over training mode, I sat on the spin bike daily at the center for around 20-30 min easy spinning. This morning after the racing I did nearly an hour with minimal leg spasms....will try getting back on the bike to commute to the pool when I get home

Kept myself dry yesterday, Monday I noticed an internal suture got pushed out if the incision site. Irritating as hell, the doc removed it and advised I stay out of the pool for the day so I ran and rode instead.

This morning's effort was 2,500 scy, with a (for me) ridiculous amount of kicking.
w/u
400 easy
m/s
3 x (300 + 4 x 50 kick)
4 x 100 w/paddles
w/d
4 x 50 ascending


4 mile run planned for lunch time.

I finally managed to get myself out of bed for a swim before work today.

I swam: 400 warm up
300 kicking (I don't know what it's called in English - even though I'm English - when you kick on your front, then side, then back, then other side)
15x100m arriving 1:38-1:41 leaving on 2:00
600m drills
200m out.

I am swimming much more than I usually do, and my shoulders, lats and arms are so damn tired!

Finally got to the point (as an ex, now re-fish) that I can post here without feeling too embarrassed. Monday was sprint day, so:
400 swim FS/BK
200 kick
200 pull
100 drill
100 swim
Main set:
2x of
2x 4x 10s on/off vertical kick, 25m sprint 25 easy (+10s)
12x50 as sprint FS, drill, kick @ 1:30, holding 30s for the sprints
200 kick
200 swim
All LCM (pool in the U.K., no chance of SCY at all!)
Then yesterday it was kick set day:
300 FS/BK
200 pull
100 drill
100 swim

10x50 underwater fly kick alternating front and back @70
5 mins vertical kick as :15 on, 15 off
30x50 @ 50, as 25 hard, 25 easy, sprinting every 5th (holding 35s on the sprints)
All done with fins

200 kick
200 swim

And then in a couple of weeks I’m done with university for the year and I can go back to super painful sets

And @Dr Tigerchik, out of curiosity what’s with the 25y cool downs? I’ve always been told longer cool downs make you a faster swimmer.

More importantly...that means you are getting out on the WRONG end of the pool. :=)

I've had words with TC over this egregious behaviour, and yet she persists (purely to spite me, I'm sure)

I heard FINA has been checking out these threads and they are just shortening every race Dressel is in by 25m just to save his chasers the futile effort of closing that gap. There is some FINA confusion about how the Dr. Tigerchik system will be applied in LCM competitions.

Hi TC, hope your hamstring is starting to feel better. I felt a bit like a fish again today, so I'm allowing myself to post!!

10k easy run and 2k swim. Did a version of the guppy wk1 workout 1.

6x50 w/up
6x100 - 25 1-arm pull, 25 free
6x150 - free
200m easy alternating 50 kick, 50 pull.

I'm now swimming outside in a 50m stainless steel heated pool until the end of Sept and it's wonderful.

Same workout as before...just a tad faster. I think I may have found a pace that may take a couple of sessions to get beyond. Getting through #14 was "everything". I could feel the turnover slowing down, and my elbows dropping----I just couldn't "fix" it.

3x100 WU
30x50 usrpt @ 49s (20s rest): failed at 14, and 23...probably would have failed at 31, whew!
100 CD
--------------
1800scy

My lats and triceps were crushed getting out. But, I'm pretty happy with the above.

I got back into the water on May 8th for the first time since December 12th. On May 8th, I managed 950 yards, mostly as 50s, and a couple 100s. Mostly over 2:10-15 pace and lots of rest. Two weeks (16 days) / 8 swims / 10,000 scy later: I just completed 26x50s, each at 1:38 / 100 pace with 20s rest. Even the two failures were at 1:42 pace.

Hey can you post pics of that pool...we are jealous.

So on the masters Swim Ontario Facebook page there is a bit of a smackdown brewing between some of the guys who do 200 fly and 400IM.

So one of the guys did the 800m free as 800IM and now he is trying to rope in enough victims to get a full heat of 800IMers.

So guess what my A events will be next year? You got it....200 fly, 400IM, 800IM, plus 200IM, 400 free and 1500 free.

So today's main set...3x200IM, 3x400IM, 3x200IM, 1x200 fly!!!

My next event will likely be the 11k openwater swim from Kingston Ontario to Wolf island. The short race is a direct 5K line. The 11K has 2 loops of 3k of an island along the way. Early July and I will do the wetsuit division
