Main Set Friday – May 20, 2011

FIFTIES!  Ton’s and ton’s of 50’s.  I enjoy those actually. 🙂

After a nice warm-up, the theme of the morning was 50’s.

Main Set (long course meters):
• 10 x 50 kick – 5 on 1:00 – 5 on :55
• 6 x 50 alternate drill / swim

• 10 x 50 swim – 5 on :45 – 5 on :40
• 6 x 50 alternate drill / swim

• 10 x 50’s on :50 – alternate odds fast, evens smooth
• 6 x 50 alternate drill / swim

I just like that sometimes short swims are as effective as long swims… as long as you really pay attention to the details.  If the coach gives you a set that isn’t incredibly difficult from a sendoff perspective, you should immediately know that the technique aspect of your swimming should increase.
