As we head into the SCM season, it’s time to push beyond the SCY comfort zone of 50s and 100s. Today’s workout asks you to do broken 75s and 125s, with a little bit of speed to spice things up.
MAIN SET: 1900
10 X 125
Odd 125s: Straight swim and use these as kind of a recovery from the even 125s.
Even 125s: These are broken at the 100 for exactly 10 seconds, then finish with an up-tempo 25. Descend your time 2 through 10.
NOTE: These are choice, but swim the same thing on all the even 125s so that you can compare your times and work toward a descend. You will probably be on a different sendoff on the odd and even 125s. E.g., 2:30 on the odds and 2:45 on the evens. You should take roughly 20 seconds rest after the odd 125s and 30-45 seconds rest on the even 125s.
200 easy recovery
Three rounds of the following:
2 X 75 on 2:00
1 X 50 easy recovery
NOTE: The 75s are broken at the 50 for exactly 10 seconds, then finish with an up-tempo 25. Second 75 should always be faster than the first 75. These are choice by round.
