IM SET #1: 800 + 200
4 X 200 IM on 4:00 descend [went 3:08…3:05…3:02…2:57]
In a 20-yard pool, 200 is 10 lengths, so I floated the extra 40 throughout the set. First 200, the extra 40 was fly; second 200 it was back; etc.

200 EZ pull, atl. back/free

TETHER SET #2: 400 equiv. + 80
Repeat the first tether set, except the final tether swim is 120 instead of 160.

80 EZ recovery

IM SET #2: 400
4 X 100 IM on 2:00 sendoff
A 100 is 5 lengths, so float the odd length throughout the set.

Total Yardage: 3300
