Swimming Set of the Week – October 23, 2009

 Got a Masters swimmers who needs a special 60th birthday practice?  Here’s just the thing… and it was a lot of fun for the rest of us, too.

WARMUP SET:  100+
Use fins and use any stroke or combination of strokes.  Swim continuously.  See how far you can swim with only 60 strokes.  Everything has to be legal and, whatever you do, it has to look like SWIMMING rather than kicking or drilling.  Stop where you are when you finish and see who went the farthest.
