Then came 200 yards kicking with fins on one side, which was considerably easier but no arms were to be used except to take a breath and then switch sides. Felt a little twinge in my hamstring but nothing major.
Felt something else that was really
After that, 200 yards with a belt that had two protrusions at the hip. Me: Hey, Coach, this thing is interfering with how I finish my stroke. Coach: It's telling you that you need more hip rotation. Doh!
Another 2x200 yards with no toys working on high elbow catch and putting it all together. Then finally 200 yards easy. Ahh ...
But wait, there was more to come:
4x50 yds in 0:55 with 5 sec rest - Fast for me!
2x75 yds in 1:15 with 5 sec rest - Ridiculous, I got no rest at all!
4x25 yds all-out sprint with 20 seconds rest - I made it without puking!!
Then 200 yards cool down with a pull buoy plus 600 yards warm-up for a total of 2450 yards.
Oh, and all the slower swimmers from last week were not there this week so I was back in the slow lane. But, I was not the slowest person in that lane (there were two of us). Hopefully, the other new guy won't get scared off. Cuz I'm liking these group swim workouts. Reminds me of bootcamp classes I used to take and teach.
