10/25/05 AM Practice Mostly Breast Kick and Dolphin

Shoulders are tired, so was trying to give them a break by wearing fistgloves for some of practice. Did this practice in 25-yard pool.

With Zura Alph fins, swim continuously through the following:
150 Fl/Bk/Br Head-Lead IM, then 200 Back
150 Fl/Bk/BR Hand-Lead IM, then 200 BK

Then 200 EZ EZ breast kick on back, doing pistons with arms.

TETHER SET: 400 equivalent
With long belt and fistgloves, push off and do 30 head-lead breast kicks, then 20 hand-lead breast kicks centering cord between feet after each kick, then swim to the wal, turn and swim back assisted with minimal arms and focusing on drawing up the feet. 10 bobs, then repeat

4 X 50 breast kick with board on 1:15 descend (went 55…50…47…45)

100 EZ swim with pull buoy

4 X 50 breast kick with board on 1:10 descend (went 51…49…48…46)
