I wasn't actually swimming with the team, but their workout was still written up on the board so the two sets I did were taken from the workout. I do this whenever I can so that I am not always doing the same workouts all the time that I come up with on my own. The 800 at the beginning and 500 on the kickboard are my own things that I regularly do when I'm swimming on my own.
800 freestyle (time: 14:34 ... I just need to drop 2 1/2 more minutes to qualify) Since I'm trying to qualify in this event, I'm doing one at each workout to build up my strength/endurance
4x200 1. choice (backstroke) 2. freestyle with the buoy thingy between my legs 3. kick, no board, IM order (50 fly, 50 back, 50 breast, 50 free) 4. choice (backstroke)
For those who don't know, choice just means anything other than freestyle, and since the 200 backstroke is my other good event, I always pick backstroke.
Second set: drills (I absolutely hate drills!!!!) I haven't done any proper swimming drills since ... my 3rd year of high school
4 x 50 one arm butterfly
4 x 50 six kick backstroke (take a stroke every six kicks
4 x 50 small arm breaststroke .. whatever that is, I just did regular breaststroke since that's by far my weakest stroke.
4 x 50 six kick freestyle (same as w/backstroke ... take a stroke every six kicks)
God do I hate drills.
Last of all: 500yd on the kickboard to build up my leg strength.
Oi! Just writing that out made me tired! There was also another set involving 5 150s but I skipped it because I was tired. :)
