Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Back in the Swim of Things

One the best things from training for my first Ironman in 2008 was the swim bunch that met regularly in DC – at either the Eastern Market pool or the Catholic University pool.  We rotated who brought the workout.  We chatted between sets.  We  got coffee after our AM workouts and sometimes a beer after our evening swims.  Swimming + Socializing = One Satisfied Sara!

Thanks in part to a stress fracture (and a short running hiatus), I’m back in the pool on a regular basis.  Wednesday and Friday mornings you can now find me at USF Koret.  Oh, and it turns out there’s a good group from both Golden Gate Tri Club and SF Tri Club there on those mornings too.

Here’s my workout from this AM:

Warm Up:

1×400 – 200 swim, 100 kick, 100 pull

6×50 – drill 25, swim 25

Main Set:

1×500 – Swim

3×200 – 50 kick, 100 swim, 50 kick

1×500 – Swim

4×200 – 50 ez, 50 fast

Cool down:

200 easy

I’m always looking for more workouts.  Please share your favorites with me!  And, if you live in SF – come join me at Koret or take me to another pool (love the Olympic Club!).
