I guess that is what kept most of you away this morning??
Good to see Joshi and Becky though - made it worthwhile being there for me!
Here is the workout from this AM if you want to get it in later:
200 pull ez
600 swim ez - breathe 3-5-7 per 50m
10 x 100 as 25 kick(no board)/75 build pace - 10 sec btw
200 pull - DPS
10 x 50 as 25 drill/25 swim Drills as follows: 1. Catch up
3. Drag fingers (high elbows)
4. Catch up with 3-beat kick pause
5. Catch up w/3-beat kick pause/drag fingers
400m for time
200 nice and ez
Total = 3100m **Note - this is slightly amended from this morning's actual session - this is longer. So if you plan on turning up at the pool and using the board you might want to add the additional pieces in.
Thanks to Ayesha for stepping in and rallying the troops while I was down at TdG on Thursday. It sounded like you guys got in a good workout.
I have a work function to attend this Thursday evening so I want to get an idea of who would be interested in getting the swim done in the AM. Please respond to this post and I will see what kind of a commitment we have before I make the call to have practice in the AM......
Awesome to see that Alexis has thrown out the challenge to get focused on training.
I will post a very generic sort of training program here in the next couple of days. I think it would be really good to get some sort of feed back from you guys on the races you have planned.
I know we have a few people scheduled to race Columbia on May 18. That is only 3 weeks away. As we did last year, lets try to get in a session or two out at Gunpowder. This will enable you to get familiar with swimming in the open water and practice transitions. I am thinking we can set it up for a complete swim-bike-run session. The first session will be 5/8/08 - next Thursday. I will post more info on here for you as we get closer to the day.
Please post your thoughts.......
