09/07/07: Anaerobic in the Pool

So Benji has this great idea for us to work on our swimming LT thresholds in the pool last night be doing lots of anaerobic sets. Fortunately Benji is a really good coach and knows what he's doing, and balanced the sprints with lots and lots and lots of rest in between. I ended up with 2550 yds:

Warmup: 200 swim, 100 kick, 100 pull

3x200 (175 easy, 25 sprint)

50 easy

6x50 sprint on 2'30" (sprints were 42-44" - see what I meant about lots of rest....)

50 easy

400 kick sprint on each 6th 25

50 easy

8x25 sprint on 1'15" (sprints were 20-21")

50 easy

5x50 breathe after 1 stroke, then 2, then 3, etc

CD: 200 swim

Actually turned out to be a pretty fun workout.

Lots of training coming up. Tonight is a 2.75 hour run, tomorrow is the TI swim clinic, and Sunday is 5 hours of riding fun.

Live with purpose....Enjoy the adventure....
