BREAST SET:  650 + 150

Whatever stroke you choose on this set, the idea is to do a controlled descend, taking it down to your actual race pace on the final 75.  E.g., my target race pace for 100 breast is 1:16 (19 seconds per 25), so I want the Tempo Trainer at :19 on the final 75.  On the first 6 X 75, pick one or two technique points to focus on, execute them really well, and try to keep executing them well as you go faster and faster.

8 X 75 breast, controlled descend

#1:  Tempo Trainer @ :26

#2:  TT @ :25

#3:  TT @ :24

#4:  TT @ :23

#5:  TT @ :22

#6:  TT @ :21

#7:  TT @ :20 (from the blocks)  just barely made it

#8:  TT @ :19 (from the blocks) didn’t quite make it — off by about 2 seconds

150 easy recovery
