50-minute swim workout, mid distance, 6-9-21

This is one of my favorite main sets. There’s a bit of variety, it pushes me, and I can sink into the meditative swim. I did battle a full goggle for the first 500 because I’m too stubborn to stop until I was done with the warmup. Perhaps that’s why I swam it a hair...

50-minute swim workout, Tuesday “fun” day, 6-8-21

Tuesdays are my “fun” days. Well, really, every day I’m swimming is a fun day, but Tuesdays I do something a little different. The eggbeater was a little challenging because I was in the shallow end. Hands are out of the water, although just. Despite the longer...

50-minute swim workout, SCAQ Friday, 6-4-21

Swimming under Coach Clay is always interesting. As there are a lot of lanes on different intervals and there are many beginning swimmers he’s often giving advice to, we often wait for him to return to our lane. This is why you see a lot of easy 50s. It’s hard to sit...

50-minute swim workout, stroke technique, 6-3-21

I chose two different drills for this workout. I wanted to see which one worked the best (as in, which one improved my speed without any extra effort.) It’s still a bit of a toss up, but I think when I get the right timing for the side kicks, this helps me with the...

50-minute swim workout, mid distance with a friend, 6-2-21

I swam with a friend today, which is always fun, but it’s hard because he was down at the other end of the lane. Since we hadn’t planned our sets beforehand, after each set, we had to swim to the “middle” of the pool to decide what we were going to do next. Also, he...

50-minute swim workout, girls just wanna have fun, 6-1-21

Running late on posting these next three workouts. It wasn’t intentional. There are a lot of other workouts available, but I’m unsure as to whether these have been helpful for people or not. I hope so. This 50-minute swim workout is the weekly fun workout. The first...

50-minute swim workout, SCAQ Friday, 5-28-21

Today I swam with SCAQ at my usual pool. I didn’t have to write my own workout. (Yay!) However, that meant I had to wait for someone to give it to me. I get impatient. LOL If you’re in the lane with me, you better be prepared to listen and keep moving. We have a...
