Swim Pyramid

pyramidToday I swam at lunch.  I decided to go ahead and write down on a piece of paper exactly what I was going to do.  I thought that this would keep me from cheating and on schedule.  Here is what I did:

200 yard warm up

2 x 50 on :60

2 x 100 on 2:00

2 x 150 on 3:00

2 x 200 on 4:00

2 x 150 on 3:00

2 x 100 on 2:00

2 x 50 on :60

Writing this down really paid off for me today.  I started at the top and did not take any more time than allotted.  So this 1800 yards did not take me more than 32 minutes plus the 200 warm up.  I was in and out like a flash.

This was a big change for me, because I would usually find myself taking too much of a breather at the end of each rep.  Today was a perfect lunch time set!
