Wednesday Dec 24th, 2008

Thanks to everyone who follows my blog
I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday
it began here:

8:00 - 10:00
Neil Walker coached
SCY swim center main pool
swam with Anders Storvik, David Zolno, beside Tanica Jamieson and several younger swimmers I'm not going to name
dove in around 6:35

6 x (100 fr on 1:30, 50 k on :50)

20 x 25 k on 25

there was something else I don't recall

Main Set

200 IM moderate
2 x 50 free fast from a dive on 1:10

200 IM
2 x 50 br fast from a dive on 1:10
went 32

200 IM
2 x 50 bk fast from a dive
went 30 & 25

200 IM
50 fl fast from a dive
went 24

put on FS PRO leg skins

50 bk fast
Neil timed
roll start
went 23.8

100 easy

rested 5 minutes

Neil asked me to do a fast 50 bk for time with 6 SDKs
to see the time difference, I took 7 oops

50 bk fast
(with only 7 SDKs)
roll start
Neil timed
went 24.9

as I sat out and rested for my fast swims
the swimmers did more rounds
I had fun calling out times

encouraging them and offering them suggestions like:

+ Streamline like Michael Phelps

+ Go a little deeper off your push offs and starts

+ Take in a Big breath of air before your turn and hold it.

+ Take more SDKs off your start and turn on fly
they dropped from 32 to 29

+ Try this Aqua V cap on your next fast swim
I had one with me and let them try it out.

The swimmers swam faster times.
Maybe it was the my suggestions
Maybe it was because I was paying attention to them and calling out their times.
