06/30/03 IM Practice with Barth

The Wooster Masters team usually works out at 5 am in a long-course outdoor pool, but it was thundering and lightning this morning, so we moved indoors to the high school 25-yard pool. The only other person to show up was Barth, an old swim buddy. Here’s what we did.

IM SET #2: 600
Three rounds of the following, all 50s on 1:00 sendoff:. No breaks between rounds. My goal was to practice transitions between all the strokes, and to get in some 50 breaststrokes, which is an event I’ll be racing this summer.
