With school slowly winding down and summer on its way, today was the first morning in more than a month when I didn't have to be somewhere immediately after my Saturday morning workout. For once, I didn't have to rush or organize my workout as some kind of bulk yardage super-set. I actually built today's workout more-or-less like a traditional swimming workout that anybody might do at an age group practice.
6 x 100 @ 1:30 easy
10 x 50 @ :45, breathing every third
6 x 200 @ 2:55, aerobic pace (80% effort)
6 x 50 kick @ 1:00, fly/fly/breast
6 x 100 pull @ 1:30
2 x 50 fly @ :90 (full sprint)
150 warm down
Total: 3700 yards
I didn't feel like I necessarily had my best stuff today, but I held 2:35 for the main set 200s, and I put both of the 50 flys under :32. That's not bad.
I still think I could put together a sub-1:00 100 butterfly from a dive, and one of these days I'm going to give that a try. Probably need to do a bit more stroke work before I do, however.
