OK guys & gals. I need your help.
My imagination is tapped out.
This week is a fairly heavy week for me in terms of training for Rev3 Florida next month.
Generally, I’m really pretty good at coming up with my workouts. In fact, I’ve got a really solid plan set that I think will have me ready for the race – but it’s a high-level plan. For example…this afternoon’s swim session says this: “SWIM: 3000 yards” That’s it. No particulars. No details.
Usually what I do is take the distance and build my sets to match the distance given where I’m at in terms of distance from a race, etc. I’ll often use my prior workouts, tips from coaches I’ve worked with, and occassionally sets from sites such as the one that Sara McLarty created for the National Training Center (http://ntcmastersswim.blogspot.com/).
Well today, I don’t have that creative spark. I don’t have a set designed. My teammate Ryan tweeted me a set this morning
|@TriMadness I’d go with 400 w/u, 4 x 50 k, 200 p, 6 x 50 on 55, 3 x (4 x 100 on 1:50), 300 cruise, 400 cool mixed.|
Not a bad looking set at all.
So here’s where you come in. What would you do? Be creative. Punish me …. or not.
Some particulars. I swim in a SCY pool. I’m slow (1:45/100yds). I’m six weeks out from my big race. I need to do 3000 yards inclusive of warm-up and cool down.
Drop a comment with your suggestions. I’d love your input!
