As I get closer to some bigger swims I need to work on making the most of my noontime workouts. That means showing up with a plan and not letting myself get too sidetracked during the workout. I needed something that didn’t really afford for a lot of time spent hanging on the wall so I dug up a workout we did back in March out of my Go the Distance logs that would have no problem expanding to fit the space alloted.

200 swim
200 kick
200 pull

1 x 300 free @ 4:30
2 x 250 free @ 3:45
3 x 200 free @ 3:00
4 x 150 free @ 2:15
5 x 100 free @ 1:30
6 x 50 free @ :45

3400 yards total

I was excited to have Mike back in the pool after a long absence doing cool stuff like coaching one of his swimmers into a spot on the Junior Pan Pacs team. Even a little out of swim shape he’s still faster than me and gives me somebody to chase during workouts. We started the workout together and were eventually joined by 2 other swimmers. He hung around through the 150′s and then it was just me and one other guy who knocked out the 100′s and 50′s. I’m pretty sore but in that good sore kind of way.

In other Masters news… USMS just released a video with Coach Patty and the SwimMAC Masters from North Carolina. I got a chance to swim with SwimMAC back in May when I was in Charlotte for the 1 mile USMS Open Water National Championships. They were a really great group to swim with and I’m glad I managed to get in the pool with them!
