3x1000 swim - Daily Workout 09.22.17

September 22, 2017

What?!?! 3x1000, you're crazy man!! For whatever reason, Masters swimmers despise doing distance work (at least the majority of them) so the longest set we get in a workout is 200's. As part of an Ironman build up, I toss in this 3x1000 workout. It's semi mind numbing, but it's good for your endurance and it's a mental test to see where your mind goes when all you're doing is looking at the black line for 15-20'. 


Here's the workout, nothing fancy, but... as the southerners say "that dog will hunt!" 


Warm up - 20-30" rest on everything
300 swim
200 kick - w/fins
100 pull

Main Set
3x1000 w/1min rest. All in the 60-70% range building endurance.

- Option to pull round #1 - but that's it, no other gear allowed (not even those awesome Roka shorts

Warm down

100 easy swimming - try doing non-free (breaststroke and backstroke ideally to help stretch things out)
100 kick w/board (and fins, duh)
