100 yards in 32 min and 10 seconds...haaa?

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'
(D) Paddles
(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.
