troyboy300 saidOkay, I'm kind of curious about this. What was the hardest you've ever worked out? Share your stories and describe the experiences.
best one, the one where our swim coach challenged us to do one set of infinite 100s until we couldn't make the mark...of course this is one of the challenges we had right before taper. I wish I could explain it but the day after thanksgiving haze is just too much. So I'll write it out.
# Max. Time
Of course all this is done descending...so the set gets faster and faster and faster with less and less rest between each. It's not that difficult when you're in the first 5 or so hundred. You can do this with descending by one, two, or three seconds. But, man, you start doing things right when you know you don't have a whole lot of rest at the end. Like...doing proper flip-turns, breathing and stroke technique.
Maybe this ain't what you were thinking of, probably more along the lines of weight-lifting, but man, the mental challenge was great and to overcome that great challenge was even greater.
of course i died in the pool, when my coach had us do that the next day...
