Never did I think...

NEVER DID I THINK I would do 10k in the pool again after last winter. Let alone again this year. Well, a friend who swims masters in town told me that he and a group of swimmers were going to swim 10k this weekend. Since I am doing a swim focus, I was in. Following the workout, we had a potluck and some GOOD FOOD!

Instead of a boring 100x100 or something like that, everyone brought a 2k workout and then we picked sets to swim out of "a hat." Here was the resulting 10k workout. All intervals were 1:15 per 100 SCY + 10sec or faster. So 100's were on 1:25, 200's on 2:40, 300's on 3:55, 400's on 5:10, etc....

1200 mixed warm-up

Set #1 400, 2x200, 400p, 2x200p, 400

200 ez

Set #2 4 x (4x25,2x100), 3x100, 2x150, 2x200


Set #3 400, 3x100, 300, 3x100, 200, 3x100, 200

200 ez

Set #4 400, 300, 200, 100, 300, 200, 100, 200, 100, 100

200 ez

The brunch after included eggs, fruit, polenta, ham, muffins, milk, chili and there were even a few beers scattered around the table!


On a related note, the swim block is going well. Week one was about 26,000 yards and this week was just over 32,000 yards. I will do 3 days hard and then recover for 4 days over Turkey Day. Then repeat the pattern of (2.5weeks hard, a few days easy) 2 more times before I head to Clermont...

Enjoy your turkey!

Really glad Asics is going back to the tried and true.

Eager to hear your thoughts.
