05/31/05 CCB Masters Working It Down

WARMUP: 400
400 your choice, on your own

TRIATHLON SET: 100
Do this entire set without touching the bottom. Tread water at mid pool until everyone in your lane completes the 25, then start the next 25. The idea is to practice leveling off and starting to swim without pushing off the wall — something you may need to do once or twice in the middle of a triathlon swim or open-water swim.
4 X 25 freestyle, starting each 25 from the middle of the pool

MAIN SET: 2000
400 freestyle
400 IM with fins (OK to drill the butterfly)
300 freestyle pull with pull buoy. Bump up your normal breathing pattern by 1 stroke.
