50-minute swim workout, lactic, 2-26-21

Fridays are usually sprint workouts, but I wanted to change it up. While distance was considerably less than what I generally swim, it was not an easy workout if you do it right. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to swim the entire 50 minutes, but, when you do it...

50-minute swim workout, no emphasis, 2-25-21

Usually, I'd work on stroke technique on Thursdays, but I decided to do something a little different. While I did focus on technique during the warmup set, I didn't do anything specific other than focus on my breath, stroke, and flip turns. How easy could I make it...

50-minute swim workout, mid-distance day, 2-24-21

Today was a better swim day. Perhaps it's because the warmup set was more of a warmup set with the slower interval. It seems that I require a good 1100 yards to really get ready to crush my times. (Crush being relative, of course.) I had a really nice compliment from...

50-minute swim workout, sprint emphasis, 2-19-21

Today was sprint emphasis. I had no sprint. I tried, but, honestly, I felt like I had someone holding on to my feet as I crawled through the water. Hopefully, this 50-minute swim workout will bring you more joy than it did me. Well, it was still a good day to be in...

50-minute swim workout, distance workout, 2-18-21

If you saw my last swim workout post, you’ll have seen I broke my toe during that workout. I decided to take a day off to “baby” that toe and came back today. Usually, Thursdays are stroke technique focus, but, since I missed my mid-distance swim workout yesterday,
