05/04/06 UV Rays Masters Fins Yes, But…

On Tuesday we did 400s, so today I wanted to keep things short and add some speed at the end.

WARMUP: 400
400 your choice, on your own

TRIATHLON SET: 200
With fins.
8 X 25 free on approx. :10 RI.
Swim three abreast in your lane. If there are only two of you, one swims down the middle. The idea is to swim close together — getting used to crowded conditions at the start of a triathlon.

FLY SET: 400
With fins.
Swim four times through the following. Rest interval is 10 to 15 seconds.
1 X 25 — 2L/2R Fly
1 X 25 — 3 strokes Fly…switch to Free
1 X 25 — alternate one cycle Pulse Breast and one cycle Pulse Fly
1 X 25 — 3 strokes Fly…switch to Free

KICK SET: 200
No equipment.
200 flutter kick on your back, alternating head-lead kick/hand-lead kick by 50.

IM SET: 300 + 50
No equipment.
4 X 75 FL/BK/BR…BK/BR/FR…FL/BK/BR…BK/BR/FR

FREESTYLE SET: ???????
With fins!!!
Swim straight through the following. No breaks. The idea is to keep going until you fail to meet the sendoff. To choose your initial sendoff, add approximately :35 seconds to your time on the first 100, which should be swum at an easy pace.

2 X 100 @ X sendoff (fastest lane used 1:50; middle lanes used 2:00)
2 X 100 @ X minus :10 sendoff
2 X 100 @ X minus :20
2 X 100 @ X minus :30
2 X 100 @ X minus :40
Etc.

Our fastest lane managed to do 10 X 100, going from a 1:50 sendoff down to 1:10. Their times ranged from 1:15 to 1:20 on the first few 100s, down to 1:05 to 1:10 on the final two 100s.

Total Yardage: approx. 2700
