Look what I got!!!!
Those of you who have been reading here for awhile have heard lots about my old swim coach Mr. Woodling, one of the formative influences in my athletic career. And you may remember that he sent me a stack of his immaculately-kept swim set archives awhile back . . .Well that thing above is a whole big binder of months of swim workouts from the legend himself! Mr. Woodling said I am free to do with them as I please, so I may share a set or workout with you here every so often. And my athletes can prepare themselves for some new swimming fun!
Many of them can expect to be seeing this 14x200s set coming to a program near them soon. And I thought this was a nice triathlon-ish workout for anyone to try . . . How awesome was Mr. Woodling: for the non-clock-reading folk, he actually had our “go” times mathematically worked out for us and listed there . . .
Obviously the main set intervals here can be adjusted as needed, but what you are aiming for is the shortest possible sendoff you can make (You only have to do one at a time!) for the “1s” – we are talking :00-:01 sec rest, preferably! Then add :30 to that for your 4-3-2-1 recovery 200s. Make sense?!
