1738

royals

We’re from Kansas City and we are so, so, so proud of our Royals. They are just a lot of fun to watch, partially because you can tell that they like each other and they are genuinely having fun.

One of the things the players did this year was to use “1738” in their interviews.  If they didn’t, they fined each other.  You can read why in these two articles:

We have a new member in our family, Cain (named after Lorenzo Cain), aka 1738.

Here’s our 1738 workout (the cool down would be a 125 plus 1/2 a pool length):

Underwater travel = streamlined underwater butterfly kick, coming up for air as needed.

Descending in time = swim progressively faster for each set.  In this workout, the first 100 would be your slowest, the second, third and forth would get progressively faster and the fifth 100 would be your fastest.

BEGINNER WORKOUT:

200 easy free (warm-up)

16×25 fly kick with underwater travel (use fins if you have them) on the :50

10×50 free on the 1:30 (2 fast 50s and then 1 slow 50, repeat until you’ve done 10 50s)

5×100 free descending in time on the 2:00

138 easy (cool down)

= 1738

INTERMEDIATE WORKOUT:

200 easy free (warm-up)

16×25 fly kick with underwater travel (use fins if you have them) on the :40

10×50 free on the 1:15 (2 fast 50s and then 1 slow 50, repeat until you’ve done 10 50s)

5×100 free descending in time on the 1:45

138 easy (cool down)

= 1738

ADVANCED WORKOUT:

200 easy free (warm-up)

16×25 fly kick with underwater travel (use fins if you have them) on the :30

10×50 free on the 1:00 (2 fast 50s and then 1 slow 50, repeat until you’ve done 10 50s)

5×100 free descending in time on the 1:30

138 easy (cool down)

= 1738

Test Set #8

TEST SET = a set performed periodically to determine your progress.

Today’s test set of 6x100s will test your anaerobic fitness level. Go all out on each 100 and hold the fastest time possible. Keep track of how fast you swam each 100 so the next time you swim this same set, you can compare the times. You should see that you are getting faster.
