Main Set Thursday – October 7, 2010

Recovery day… again… sorta.

This had some "fun" equipment, with fun in quotes because how much fun can paddles with weights strapped to them be?

Here’s the set:

2 x 1000 on 15:00 (short course yards)
#1
– 400 free with paddles and your feet strapped together (no pull buoy)
– 300 free swim
– 200 free with weighted paddles (focus on allowing the extra weight to drop the hand to the catch)
– 100 free smooth

#2
– 400 free smooth
– 300 free with weighted paddles (I used a much heavier weight this time, 2 lbs per hand, and the hand started really dropping the way it was supposed to… not sure if it was the weight or fatigue)
– 200 free smooth
– 100 free with paddles and your feet strapped together (no pull buoy)

I like tools, that’s no secret, so this had a good mix of fun and not so fun.
