4/6 X 25 with fins — Hand-Lead Body Dolphin on Your Back, build each 25 to full speed.
4/6 X 25 nekked freestyle with eyes closed. Start in the middle of the lane and swim with your eyes closed. Stay within yourself and feel what’s happening with your stroke. Wait until everyone in your lane finishes on each 25. This was an interesting set, and we called it Gutterball, for reasons you’ll discover if you try it.

MAIN SET: 1500/1000

Fastest lane did three rounds of the following. Other lanes did two rounds. Use the 25s as active recovery, i.e., get your time after the 200 and 100, but then push off within 5 to 10 seconds and start the 25s. When you finish the 25s, start the 200 or 100 within 5 to 10 seconds.
