Wednesday with Paddles

Coast Guard Blue Dolphins - 1977

40 years ago, swimmers we beginning to use more equipment during training.  When I first joined a swim team in 1973, I remember that some people didn't even use goggles.  Nowadays, there are many options for eye wear, hand paddles, drag suits, fins, kick boards, pulley and stretchband resistance systems etc. 

I am feeling about 90% strength and fitness, after having shoulder surgery 11 months ago.  Weight lifting has helped recovery, and so has training 6 days per week.  Lately, I have been able to swim a decent 50 butterfly and can hold OK intervals when doing freestyle sets with hand paddles.

8 x 125 warmup  on 1:50
12 x 75 kick on 1:25
12 x 75 drill on 1:12
6 x 400 pull on 5:40 (held ave of 4:56 ~ 1:14 per 100)
200 swim down
TOTAL 5300 scy
