    I will be logging my personal progress under a USRPT system in this topic. I have been out of the water for training purposes for about 6 months, and it has been 2 years since I swam competitively. I am looking to log 4 – 5 practices a week, starting at about 40 minutes this week and increasing time to 80-90 minutes by week 4.

    I will complete one week of “EZ” USRPT practices focusing on a 500 time of 5:40. Week 2 I will introduce 200 free sets with time of 2:10, 100 free sets with time of 1:00, and 100 back sets with time of 1:10. These are all times I believe I can swim right now w/o training. Week 3 I will introduce 50 free training with time of :26. I will also do a 2 day mini taper in week 3 and have a time trial day consisting of 100 free & 100 back.

    I modified the workout posted above a bit
    Day 2 workout:
    2×150 (100 free + 50 back) #1 moderate #2 build the 100 + build the 50
    USRPT – 500 free – 20×50 w/flip @ :55 hold 34
    4×25 push off to float + ez kick
    1×50 EZ free swim
    4×25 backstroke drills (double arm + 6/6)
    USRPT 2 – 100 Back – 20×25 @ :30 hold 17
    4×25 push off to float + ez kick
    4×25 assorted swim
    2×25 perfect stroke back + free

    Total Yardage- 2300
    USRPT Yardage- 1500

    Set 1: I successfully made 16/20 (missed 2 intervals + 2 50’s rest after each miss) at 34s with a flip. It is hard for me to judge speed right now as I had several at 31/32 seconds. I’m not sure if I could do a full 500 at that pace though only making 16 of 20.
    Completed 800 yards at race pace.

    Set 2: Backstroke felt terrible as my under water fly kick is awful and my pull seemed real weak. I wasn’t getting the DPS I would like. I made 14/20 (missed 2 intervals + 2×25 rest after each). I think I should have made 17/20 but on my 2nd miss I wasn’t focusing and went real slow for some reason. I definitely think I could go ~1:08 in the 100 back right now. The pace didn’t feel fast. I think I was just tired from the 50’s.
    Completed 350 yards at race pace.

    I’m not sure if I’m going to have time/energy for a practice tomorrow as I’m taking a friend to the airport and trying to play some water polo tomorrow night.

    Day 3 Workout:
    2×150 (100 free + 50 back) #1 moderate #2 build the 100 and build the 50
    USRPT 1 – 200 Back – 20×50 @ 1:00 hold 37/38s (200 back est. time 2:30)
    4×25 push to float + ez kick rest :05
    8×25 alt drill/swim free rest :05-10
    USRPT 2 – 100 Free – 20×25 w/flip @ :30 hold 15s
    4×25 push to float + ez kick rest :05
    8×25 alt drill/swim any stroke
    Total Yards: 2400
    USRPT Yards: 1250

    What are you using to keep track of your times?

    I made a comeback 5 years after finishing college swimming. I think you’ll be surprised at how well you do if you keep at it.
