Here’s what the swimmers at the Brandywine YMCA did on Saturday:
W/U 500 Swim Choice
Kick w/ fins: 5 x 100 @ :15 rest. Choice.
Pull: 5 x 100 @ :10 rest, alternate back and free
Main: 5 x 100 IM @2:30/2:45/3:00
IM’s can be any configuration depending on strokes known
W/D 2 x 50 slow and easy.
2100 yards (some did fewer laps: 1700 min.)
Considering that we started out at 350 in January, I am proud of these swimmers! What keeps them going and me too is their genuine interest in each other’s progress. That comraderie is a huge motivating tool. I’ll write about other motivational tips soon.
Sad news for me: intense shoulder pain followed my own swimming on Saturday. It is time to bite the bullet and get into PT (again!). But today I did Yoga, and it was really a work out. And, yes, I warmed up on my Power Lung pre-yoga, and felt the better for it! I think it is going to be my universal warmup. Which is how I am going to use it now before I practice the flute. Guests for our picnic arrive in 1.5 hours. I can get something in! Happy Memorial Day!
