According to plan, the tone of swim practices is changing. This mesocycle finds us moving away from longer controlled swims and emphasis on distance per stroke to a higher concentration of non-freestyle swimming, and a difference in our approach. Base is well past; we are now looking to increase speed, working towards peak performances either at Nationals or at Worlds.
♦ 600 free
♦ 300 choice drills (I did a mix of catch-up, zipper, fingertips in the water, and one arm fly)
♦ 14 x 75 — 50 choice hard, 25 free harder on 1:45 — my choice was 25 fly, 25 breast, repeating 1:15
♦ 10 x 25 free on :40 — keeping long strong stroke, but increasing turnover
Due to where I am in my personal cycle, I had to scoot to the loo before coaching the half hour of skills and drills, but the rest of the gang did 3 x 100 free on 1:50, hard. My total for the evening was 2,200 metres.
Oh, and just take a gander at our long range forecast ... five days of snow icons! Over the next 24 hours, 5 to 10 centimetres is predicted. Where on earth will we put it all??
