FINAL SET IF YOU HAVE TIME: 200
4 X 50 choice on a sendoff that gives you approx. 20 seconds rest
COUNT YOUR STROKES on each length. Your stroke count on the first 50 should be quite low, and you want to have the same count on both lengths. E.g., if your normal freestyle stroke count is 18, each length of your first 50 should be at 15. On the next 50, you should add one stroke per length (e.g., if your first 50 was 15/15, now you’re 16/16). Continue to add a stroke to each length on each 50. Because you are adding strokes, you should be able to descend you time on each 50.
#1: Very low stroke count — and hold same stroke count on both 25s
#2: Add one stroke per length to your count from #1.
#3: Add another stroke per length
#4: Add another stroke per length.
