first water

Good yardage this morning. I’m back to “distance Mondays”, my day of the week to crank out some longer-than-usual sets in the pool. For instance, today’s focus was on a couple 400 yd freestyle intervals. And my times were not that dismal, coming in right under 6 minutes on my second go, putting my splits under 1:30 for 400 yd. Not bad for me at this stage. Today’s routine totaled 2000 yd, my longest session since returning to the pool. And this has me thinking about adding 200 yd ever week for a few months, maybe getting up to 5000 yd days and breaking my old swim times, particularly the 500 yd in under 5 minutes. That’s almost a competitive time and surely nothing to be ashamed of amongst the masters swim crowd.
da numbers:

  • 2 x 100 free/zipperswitch
  • 2 x 400 free @ 8:00
    • 1st 400 time: 6:07
    • 2nd 400 time: 5:57
  • 3 x 200 pull w/ paddles @ 4:00
    • steadily decreasing times, between 3:10 – 2:55
  • 300 dolphin kick w/ short fins
  • 100 apnea drill w/ short fins
