05/02/05 Breaststroke Practice with Equipment

Was in NYC this weekend, and had another chance to practice at Asphalt Green — short-course this time. This practice is 2500 yards. If you wanted to bump it up by another 800 or 1600 yards, you could do the main set a third and fourth time, switching the equipment around so that you did each segment (1 X 200…2 X 100…4 X 50…4 X 25) with a different piece of the equipment each time.

WARMUP: 800
With fins:
100 Head-Lead “IM”
100 Hand-Lead “IM”
200 Single-Arm “IM”
200 2L/2R “IM”

Without fins:
200 EZ breaststroke kick

MAIN SET: 1600
The idea on these swims is to swim the second half of everything faster than the first half.
