Flabby thighs and their uses...69,200 metres down

There was something vaguely familiar about Cookie's session at Consett this evening, as it had a similar structure to last weeks I really enjoyed it though. Queenie Reed was in great form but struggling to hang on to her pull buoy, I raised a smile when I pointed out that having flabby thighs and a large a**e came in useful sometimes.

As you may have guessed from my sessions I love swimming pull I'm probably faster pulling then straight swimming. Despite the creeping fatigue I coped much better with the 200's and gradually worked my way to the front of the lane.

So there I was leading and holding around 3 mins for the first 7 or 8 and then I crashed and burned pretty badly, which coincided with a spectacular choke when I must have swallowed about a gallon of water as you can see from the print out.

Which translated into the following swimming.

200 warm up
6 x 33 @ 35s sprint 10m, 15m, 20m, 25m, 30m 33m
4 x 200 pull @ 3.30
4 x 100 swim @ 1.45
4 x 33 kick @ 60 30s RI*
3 x 200 @ 3.30
4 x 100 swim @ 1.45
4 x 33 kick @ 60 30s RI
2 x 200 pull @ 3.30
4 x 100 swim @ 1.45
4 x 33 kick @ 60 30s RI
1 x 200 pull @ 3.30
2 x 100 swim @ 1.45
133 kick
66 swim

* I think Cookie only gave us the extra 30 secs cos I mentioned to him that "you could go off people"

  1. More graphs - got me looking again. I really need one of these watches. We don't monitor heartrates that often but tonight we did. Made me smile as my heartrate would have disappeared off the top of your chart for a good portion of the session. Won't be swimming for a couple of days now though - need to recover.
