As someone who trains exclusively on their own, there are times where I will freely admit that I could be pushing myself a little harder.
Not having a coach, or someone next to me to push me when hitting peak levels of mental and physical exhaustion is a bit of a downer on occasion, but for the most part, I love the solo aspect of training. That being said, when crafting together swim workouts I have been pretty stagnant recently, leaning on the same handful of sets over and over again.
Sprint swimming is basic enough: Jump in, latch on to one of your favorite swim workouts for sprintersand off you go.
Hawke is the head coach at Auburn, who have long been one of the dominant sprint programs on the planet. Gonna give this Auburn sprint set a rip today. How hungry am I going to be after this set BrettHawke?
So with my workout in tow, I skipped on down not really to the local YMCA pool Love in aubourn torment the local lap swimmers. Feeling pretty glorious! Was able to average 13 flats without having to go fully all out. All the waiting at the walls and then the suddenly violent swimming was causing some confusion apparently. Note: swimmers in moderate lane not overly pleased. Waves are washing over the lane rope into their lane, making head up breaststroke challenging.
The streamline and breakout felt tight, and relatively drag free. Clearly frustrated, the public swimmer gets out, stares at me, then stomps off to the change room. Apparently not a fan of the waves. Starting to get a little sweaty. You can tell that you are doing work when you feel the sweat rolling off your forehead at the walls. On rep 5 a blur of a body and what appeared to be XXL swimming trunks pass through my vision.
Racking my brain to figure out where I heard it earlier…. New public swimmer gets into the lane. We split it, giving me the wall side. Left hand and pool-side ladder become acquainted on two occasions, and somehow manage to straight arm one of the lights on the wall. Still not sure how. The reality of the set is beginning to set in. In crunching the s I am realizing that there is no way I am going to have time to finish the set with how much time I have left.
Accept that I will have to cut the rest between rounds down to a couple minutes of wall-hugging at the end of each round.
Why would you go and lose it, RiRi? Starting to slow down a bit. The struggle has become real struggley. Form is starting to deteriorate, fast. A few of the push-offs include a slightly longer glide than in rounds. Shoulders are starting to seize up, and the heels of my feet are beginning to cramp up. Getting the feeling that my stroke is starting to T-Rex a little bit.
On the first two reps I am able to keep some semblance of technique. On the remainder I contracted a serious case of FTD. Breathing to my off-side in order to give dominant shoulder a break. The streamlines are still pretty legit, but am now breathing every two strokes, and hand entry is starting to slip. Manage to swim an ugly 15 flat on the last rep.
Sweet molasses this got ugly. Debated strapping on the fins, but figured I had come this far, might as well finish it off with a bang, even if it was more of a whimper. The first and last reps were 15 flats.
The remainder of the reps were completed in around 16 to 17 seconds, just enough to take haggard breaths at the wall before setting off. Both shoulders were essentially numb and locked up for after the first rep, with my stroke count sky rocketing as I fully engaged my little T-Rex arms. As the aqua fit class seized the pool, I beached myself onto the deck of the pool and lay there like a dying whale for somewhere between 2 and 15 minutes.
I am not totally sure how long for certain. Had a bit of a fatigue blackout. Talk to any sprinter about what it feels like to go really fast and they will mention feeling relaxed. Here is a set to help you develop that relaxed, easy sprinting speed. Our ever-growing list of swim practices from some of the top swimmers Love in aubourn programs on the planet. Includes sets from Katie Ledecky, Michael Phelps and much more. He writes all things high-performance swimming, and his articles were read over 3 million times last year. He's also kinda tall and can be found on Twitter.
But I was ready to try something new. Hawke himself repped Australia at the Olympics twice in and As for the workout, it is no joke, featuring 2, yards to be swum at race pace. Sure, why not! As I progressed through the set, I had to take less rest between the last few rounds.
To keep awesome technique for absolutely as long as possible. Here is how the workout went down: Round 1: 10 x 25 Feeling pretty glorious! Round 3: 10 x 25 Starting to get a little sweaty. Racking my brain to figure out where I heard it earlier… New public swimmer gets into the lane. Round 5: 10 x 25 The reality of the set is beginning to set in. Round 6: 10 x 25 Starting to slow down a bit. Too tired to take goggles off my eyes at the end of the round.
Round 7: 10 x 25 The struggle has become real struggley. Round 8: 10 x 25 On the first two reps I am able to keep some semblance of technique. The last couple were…well, agonizing. In Summary I learned and remembered a few things today: Rihanna found some love. No wonder Auburn has a world class sprint program doing sets like that. Limits are meant to be punched in the face. Before today the most meters of high quality work I had done in one session was 1,m. Doubled it and change. And yes, Coach Hawke, the hunger pangs were out of this world when I finally managed to scrap my life together and walk off the pool deck.
