A longer set this morning which required some thinking, and pinpointing exactly what the coach wanted done. Just like yesterday, without attacking the focus points, it’s just going back and forth.
The focus is becomming really hitting the fine points, and this morning it was "above race pace" walls. To achieve this, everyone put on fins. The set in itself is a bland design that could be very boring… but by adding these attack points, not only was it a valuable learning experience, it was also physically challenging.
Main Set (long course meters):
• 8 x 200 on 3:00 with fins
First 15 meters dolphin with breakout FAST
Start sprinting prior to each set of flags, FAST turn and dolphin to your breakout… two strokes out, no breath.
It was intense and things felt really good. I liked it.
