Swim workout, June 25

swimmer blowing bubblesThis was just a lane swim without coaching, at the Settlement House pool, 25 yards long:

  • warm-up: (100 yd. breast stroke + 100 yd. sidestroke) = 200
  • 50 yd. 5-position sculling x 2 = 100
  • 50 yd. swimming on back and turning from side to side x 2 = 100
  • 50 yd. extended underwater dogpaddle x 2 = 100
  • 50 yd. freestyle x 11 = 550

Total: 1050 yd. or 945 metres.

Concentrate on even strokes on left and right, proper head position while breathing.

This pool is 17 paces (left foot +right foot) long for me, and it’s a 25-yard pool. The pool at Alexandra park is 34 paces long for me. Conclusion: it’s a 50-yard pool.
