55-minute swim workout, stroke technique, 8-26-21

Today was stroke technique day. Since Monday was IM day, I figured I'd just do some IM stroke technique to mix things up a bit. So, there I was working through it. Honestly, past 25 yards, I don't have a sprint fly. Okay, I don't have a sprint fly. I have 2 fly MOs:...

55-minute swim workout, mid-distance, 8-25-21

This was a relatively uncomplicated swim set today. Well, compared to yesterday. As I’d been out for the past week, I decided the longest distance I needed to do (besides the 500 warmup) was a 200. If the facility where you swim still limits you to 50 minutes, you can...

55-minute workout, fun Tuesday, 8-24-21

Today, I had a pleasant surprise. The local pool has extended the swim time by five minutes. I didn’t find out until I was climbing out of the pool and Mary, the lifeguard, told us. Of course, I jumped back in and swam an easy 50 before I did one last sprint. That’s...

50-minute swim workout, Monday IM, 8-23-21

As you may have noticed, if you even came by, I’ve been gone for an entire week. We went on vacation. No, I didn’t swim, if you don’t count traversing the Narrows in Zion National Park. Although I did get up to secure my swim slots early that first Monday morning,...

50-minute swim workout, stroke technique, 8-12-21

Even though I was still editing, I wanted to do some stroke technique. However, due to the number of people in the pool, I had to share the lane with two other people. That’s fine, but it does make it hard to work on technique. (Shrug) I did get some technique work in...

50-minute swim workout, mid-distance day, 8-11-21

It’s been a busy few days of editing, so I’m behind uploading my workouts. My brain was a little tired from all of the editing (scientific papers). This is why this workout was so simple. I didn’t want to have to think too much. Alas, I didn’t swim that fast either....

50-minute swim workout, Tuesday fun, 8-10-21

We started out with three people in our lane, but then the staff opened up more lanes, so we split. However, by the time that had happened, I was already into my main set. There was no going back at that point. 50-minute swim workout, Tuesday fun 500 warmup (~7:15...

50-minute swim workout, backstroke emphasis, 8-9-21

Although I swam a backstroke workout on Sunday, yesterday was my regularly scheduled backstroke day, so I did some more. I mean, why not? Someone did try to get in with my “partner” and I and force us to circle swim. Any other day? Sure. On backstroke day? No. He...
