Ok so now that I have my open water distance race out of the way I need to start working on training for 50′s, 100′s and other short to medium distances. So far I’ve been winging it with my workouts. I decided to give a site called swimplan.com a try. It generates custom swim workouts based on the strokes, distances, and time you want for your workouts. Plus it’s free, yay! I signed up this morning and tonight I took my first workout with me to the pool. I did however make a few small mods to the workout. Here’s the workout I ran through tonight:

Warm Up
2 x 100 freestyle (kick every 4th 25yd)

200yd freestyle alternate drill/kick

Core Set
4 x 100 freestyle with approx :20 rest

4 x 100 IM with approx :30 rest

4 x 100 freestyle with approx :20 rest

Cool Down
4 x 50′s easy(I did 2 breast, 1 kick, 1 free)

2000 yards total

I’m going to try using the swimplan workouts for the next week or two and see how it goes.
