I'm guessing this will go about like how it does every time I start swimming: go to pool, suck, but have fun. Next day: Excruciating back pain, never go back to the pool.
I swam 750m today (not continuously). While it's surely not impressive, towards the end of my swim, something... clicked. For the first time this training season, I was able to swim 100m continuously, and think I could have even done more Looking forward to finally getting better at this stuff!
Pain, or muscle soreness? Because you mentioned the lower back and arching, this could be lack of core strength and sore muscles from that if it's soreness. If it's pain, I think you may be arching too much. Either way, your lower back muscles may be lacking, and you can try this excersize, either on a ball like in the video, or hugging a padded bench. http://www.ehow.co.uk/video_4957693_lower-leg-lift-fitness-ball.html
That's one hell of a workout. Time for Jen to get on it.
it really isn't (compared with what real swimmers do)Look at kuf's workout. She does 1500 IM !!
Our florida workouts sucked. Peak daily yardage for the mid distance group would be somewhere around 14000 or 16000, more for distance, and we were a relatively low yardage program.
How many hours did you guys swim?? I'd end up as a big pink raisin.
