WARMUP: 400
400 your choice, on your own

TRIATHLON SIGHTING SET: 100
4 X 25
Swim half the length breaststroke with head out of water and sighting on the farthest point on the deck. Switch to freestyle at midpool. Sometimes in a triathlon you have to swim breast with your head out to sight the next buoy or to REALLY get your bearings.

WARMUP IM SET: 500
With fins, swim twice through the following. First time through, the kicking is all head lead. Second time through the kick is hand lead. Take a short break after the first 250.

50 dolphin kick on back

TRIATHLON SIGHTING SET: 100
4 X 25 freestyle. Each time you breathe, try to sight on the farthest thing you can see — out the window, bulletin boards on walls, lifeguard, clock, etc. The idea is to simulate an open-water race where you would be swimming along the shore and sighting along the shore.

PULL SET: 400
400 freestyle pull with buoy but no paddles. Breathe every 2…every 5. Focus on extending hands front and rear.

WARMDOWN: 50 to 100 EZ

Total Yardage: approx. 2500
