Romeo Victor and I headed to Hansen Dam for the beginning of the pool season.
The pool is so big, it is called a "swim lake." 150 meters long. My scheduled workout was:
Warm up continuous: 200 warm up into 200 FAST into 150 long aerobic into 200 FAST into 100 long aerobic into 200 FAST. THEN 8x100 steady with only 5 sec. rest n between - 200 warm down.
I have to admit, it took a little getting used to swimming 140 yards straight without stopping. The first lap I did, my breathing was all off. I should have warmed up a little first. A good lesson for race day. By the end, I was exhaling relaxed and my pull was good. The only thing I had to watch out for was holding my breath underwater at the end of the length. Overall, a very good workout.
