We’re headed out of the main triathlon season and into the fall/winter training season, so I will be adding some more aerobic days to our training. The idea today was to do some long steady swims (400 is long for us), just working on technique and not getting the heartrate up too high.
400 your choice, on your own
MAIN SET: 2000/2400/2800
Lane 1 did 100s between the 400s. Lane 2 did 200s between the 400s. Fastest lanes did 300s between the 400s. On the drill IMs, the freestyle portion is always straight freestyle.
