Main Set Wednesday – October 6, 2010

Fun tools day.

The main set was 10 x 300 on 4:15 (short course yards)

– The first 6 were with Finis snorkel, pull buoy, paddles, and a new Finis small parachute
– On number 7, I took off the parachute and tried to maintain the same stroke rate and got my time.
– On number 8, I took off the snorkel, tried to maintain the same stroke rate and got my time.
– Numbers 9 and 10 were with no tools at all… trying to maintain the same times as the previous two.

After you’ve swum so far with additional resistance, when you take the chute off, well… you start to fly.  The tough part about this set was maintaining the time on the last two.

Obviously, the first 6 really worked on the catch.  🙂
