04/11/07 Gotta Love Breaststroke

Did this in a 23- or 24-yard pool.

WARMUP: ~800
With Zura Alpha fins:
4 lengths dolphin
4 lengths free
4 lengths flutter
4 lengths back
4 lengths dolphin
4 lengths free

8 lengths EZ breast kick, various positions

MAIN SET: ~2100
For all the kicking on this set, I used two Zura Alpha fins — one on top of the other — as a kickboard. This arrangement made me keep my face in the water, and I could work on getting into streamline after each kick. I’d recommend using a small kickboard or the Zura Sidekick kickboard or one of the triangular-shaped kickboards that encourage you to kick with your face in the water!
