LCSC Coho Training Report Sunday 15 March 2020
Good morning, Coho swimmers interested in continuing preparations for a long-term successful swimming career,
During this sustained period of time away from the pool, reminding yourself daily about your long-term goals, and acting upon those goals each and every day has beneficial impact. To help you stay focused and productive, we will present a daily report with suggestions to improve strength and technique.
Sunday Suggestions for continuing Coho training:
1. Review your goals for this month’s events. Specific events, times, splits, race strategies, and technique reminders in as much detail as possible. Today was the scheduled Day After meet: if you were planning on racing, it is very helpful to visualize your preparations, including nutrition, travel, general warm up, event warm up, each race, and each cool down. Plan for success by finishing with a look at the scoreboard and seeing the time goal.
2. Run through 10-60 minutes of calisthenics and then complete shoulder stretches. Keep a diary of your daily physical fitness, and workout 2-3 times per day. Don’t overdo it, and don’t underdo it. Beginning Monday, we will provide specific dry land work for each day of the week.
3. Swimmers qualified for 13 & Over State Meet should have all events planned in detail, with a daily program for this week including precise splits, visualization, nutrition and nutrition planning for the weekend. Mental rehearsal throughout the week reinforces positive behaviors and results.
4. If you are thinking about a college athletic adventure, watch video of the college league meets. Big Tens, SEC, PAC 12, etcetera, there are many great races to watch and analyze. Take notes on what you can improve in your races to reach those heights!
Thank you for your teamwork throughout the
season. Stay safe and stay fit, focus on
Resistance is a part of life, keep swimming upstream!
