So I’m out of ideas about what to write about…have a little bit of writers block. I figure I might as well write about today’s swim workout. This is what we did:
Warm-up: 50 Kick (no board), 50 drill (choice), 50 swim. } x 4
Kick set: 50 kick with board, 50 kick without board } x 6 Odds free, evens stroke
IM set: 400 IM: 50 kick, 25 kick no board, 25 swim
Main Set: 50 easy, focusing on technique. 75 descend by 25. 100 EN2. } x 3
Each time we went through it, we added an extra 100. Interval was loose.
21 x 25 Biz/buzz set. Biz was dps free. buzz was fly. Biz/buzz was underwater dolphin kick.
We also worked on starts and did some extra turns. There was a fun game of “Going to the beach and surfing”.
My overall thoughts about the workout was that is was good. They liked the fun stuff. Their starts are looking better. The EN2 stuff was difficult for them…which means it’s good for them.
I’ve learned about 50% of their names. Still have a long way. The kids are good kids. No troublemakers. We still need a lot of work on developing a “team”. Lots of talented individuals who swim club. Lots of polo players who are learning the sport. And lots of beginners who are pretty new and shy. We have to do more to build the team.
I’m glad the winter break is over. This season will be starting before we know it.
