Main Set Wednesday - August 10, 2011

Posted by Barbara Hummel on Aug 10, 2011 11:16AM

Mostly pulling today, with some nice descends to keep things interesting.

This was our Masters main set today...1800 yards/meters.
Take roughly 30-45 seconds between segments, and roughly 20-30 seconds between swims within a segment.   Try to control your pace to achieve the descends, rather than mush your way through at one speed.   

1 X 150 kick, choice, no fins

2 X 150 swim, choice; descend 1-2

3 X 150 pull; descend 1-3

1 X 100 kick, choice, no fins

2 X 100 swim, choice; descend 1-2

3 X 100 pull; descend 1-3

1 X 50 kick, choice, no fins

2 X 50 swim, choice; descend 1-2

3 X 50 pull; descend 1-3

I did this set this past Thursday. Really enjoyed it. However, I tried it in a LCM pool, and it doesn't work real well for that. I did free for my first 1x, 2x, 3x set, so on the pull I started off on the wrong end (away from my pool toys ergo pull bouy) so for the first 50 I just let my legs drag. The second 1x, 2x, 3x set I did backstroke and on the last set I did breast. So for the last set I did 2x, 2x, 2x so that I would be on the right end of the pool to grab my kickboard and pull buoy as needed. Overall, I really enjoyed this set and plan to do it again some time.

Oh, and on the first 150 kick, I did the last 50 w/out a kickboard (streamline) so the kickboard would stay on the starting end of my lane.
