This pool has no deep end — it’s about 3 1/2 to 4 feet deep everywhere. It also has flat walls. For warmdown, did a 200 of EZ bobs and walking, but each time I got 5 yards from the wall I’d do a dolphin dive, then fast flutter into a two-hand touch and breaststroke turn to practice race-pace turns on a flat wall.

Total Yardage: approx. 3500
