Reply To: 65 year old masters seeking advice
I workout 5 days a week, but I have been competing in Masters for 35 years!
It took me three months before I saw a drop in time. My 200 free time in February of last year was what I would have expected at Nationals three months later. Since starting USRPT I have swum some of my best times in 5 or 10 years.
I do swim alone but swam with a Masters team for many years. I enjoy swimming by myself and I occasionally have a few people from the Masters team join me for a USRPT workout. I just don’t see the point of the kicking and pulling and sets of 5 x 200 on 4:00 or whatever. I am basically a middle distance swimmer and feel that USRPT is ideal for my 400/500 training.
