2000 yards. So here's a day when I arrive and the four lanes of the pool are full. I finally get one, and another guy (good swimmer) gets in between lanes and starts his workout between me and another swimmer. The other swimmer gets frustrated or is just legitimately done and leaves. Big crowds make … Continue reading Squeeze me in
2000 yards. I have seen faster swimmers use quicker arm turnover. Plus I notice the full side to side motion and what it looks like underwater when done correctly. I am getting some of both in my laps. Warmup Set (400y) 5 x 75 [25 drill/50 swim] @ 0:15 rest 25 choice Main Set (1300y) … Continue reading More swim prep than ever
6mi. I ran the neighborhood route at slow 10 min miles to see what my calf would feel like. At first, it was tight with soreness on the outsides. As I made it past 2 miles, it felt better, never the same as the other one but ok to run with. I think a few … Continue reading Getting one in
2000 yards. The LA Fitness Okee pool is dark to begin with, put me in there alone for 40 minutes of laps and it's boring. I did mix in some good breathing and speed though.... Warmup Set (400y) 4 x [25 easy @ 0:10 rest, 50 build @ 0:10 rest, 25 moderate-hard @ 0:10 rest] … Continue reading All alone in the dark
5 mi. I don't remember the intervals, because I'm writing this days after the run, but the neatest part of the Thu track was the recognition of Paul's 70th birthday. A small cake and a singing group was a good surprise for a great guy!
2000 yards. I felt good, especially trying to time my starts and finishes on the 25m course with a guy in the lane next to me. I think about the Nautica South Beach tri while I swim. I should review the course and know where I'm going vs. my imagination. Warmup Set (200y) 4 x … Continue reading In a good groove
1800 yards. I skipped the cooldown part because a day off the plane I was just happy to have been in the water. I met and spoke to Amanda, a yoga instructor in training. And I did this workout minus the cooldown last 200... Warmup Set (200y) 200 easy-mod @ 4:20 Main Set (1500y) 3 … Continue reading This could be a habit
8mi. Daylight savings now keeps it dark the whole run. I had Charlotte as some company and a few others came to play in cool 67 deg weather. I'll be begging for this in a month!
30 mi. I rode from home to the Jupiter Inlet to get some cycling in. It was nice and cool, mid 60s, plus not much of a breeze to contend with. I was glad to do some riding on the new Vittoria training tires.
4mi. No cooldown, John is at home. Erica leads the workout, trying to not be predictable. She starst with a 1000m, and ends long, too. I will predict that under her guide, we will never run a 100m or a mile. Just a thought....
