Day 15 - June 8, 2009 - Week 2
How in the world does some one swim 100 yds in 32 min? For 30 minutes today I went absolutely no where in the water, but had a killer workout. Say what!? Solve the puzzle here folks?
Swam in place today w/ the same harness around my waste from the previous post and a resistance cord attached to the starting block. One of the best workouts in the water in months.
1:00 to 2:15 work intervals w/ a recovery interval of 30 to 60 seconds.
...worked through the following scenarios per work interval (executed ~14)...
(A) No aid
(B) Finis Freestyle Snorkel w/ no 'Cardio Cap'
(C) Finis Freestyle Snorkel w/ 'Cardio Cap'
(E) Paddles and Fins
(F) Fins and kicking on your side
...counted out 70 strokes per interval...
...executed some surges against resistance...
(G) No restraint...finished the workout with a 1:08 100
I highly recommend this for a 'time crunched' athlete and for those seeking to enhance their power/sensory elements in the water. This approach to training will heavily emphasize the front end of your stroke and reinforce the need to have a HVE (High Vertical Elbow) and efficient kick.
