Several of our swimmers are getting ready for racing the 1650 or 1000 in two weeks. Others are getting ready for tri season. So the idea today was to do some distance swims at a very aerobic pace. We used a pull buoy for the 1000, and extended the breathing pattern by one stroke. Just stay aerobic and easy and get used to the non-stop distance. When you race a 1000, you’ll go back to your normal breathing pattern, which should feel really GOOD — lots of air.
