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.

Pace

We’re doing a sprint workout today that we wanted to explain.

Example:  12×25 free sprint at 100 pace, RI :20

You would first need to figure out how long it takes you to swim a 100 free.  If it takes you 1:30, then you would swim a 25 in approximately :22.  You would then try to sprint your 25s in :22 and rest (RI) for :20 between each 25.

If this is too much to think about, just sprint them without worrying about your pace.
