01/04/06  Playing Around with Tempo Trainer

I'm really liking my new Tempo Trainer. Makes me feel very STEADY when I swim, but at the same time relaxed. An odd mix. The one problem I have is that about 60% of the time, I can't hear the beep. I hear it fine on backstroke and freestyle, but on breaststroke, the up and down motion sends water into my cap and between my ear and the TT. If anyone has a solution to this, please let me know! (I know, I know...Glenn will say I've got to get to the point where I hear the rhythm in my head.)WARMUP: 960With Zura Alpha fins.Three times through:40 SA drill40 LA drill40 SA drill200 Free/BackKICK SET: 400With Tempo Trainer set at 1:6010 X 40 breast kick, with 5 Rocket Launchers before each 40. Rotated through UW kick, kickboard, pull-buoy kick, hand-lead kick on back, and whole-stroke breast. It was difficult to hold the tempo while just kicking. The other day, I was swimming whole stroke at 1:50 TT pace and it felt fast but do-able. I started this kick set at 1:50 TT, but had to increase it to 1:60.SWIM SET: 1200Did all these 40s on :55 sendoff.8 X 40 BR with TT at 2:307 X 40 BR with TT at 2:205 X 40 BR with TT at 2:104 X 40 BR with TT at 2:003 X 40 BR with TT at 1:902 X 40 BR with TT at 1:801 X 40 BR with TT at 1:70WARMDOWN: 400300 Freestyle pull100 EZ BreastTotal Yardage: 3000
