04/20/04 Taper Practice for Breaststroke

WARMUP: 400
400 EZ, mostly backstroke, with some breaststroke kick

MAIN SET: 1500
I wanted to swim each of my breaststroke races twice, with a lot of rest in between swims. Also wanted to swim the second 200, 100, or 50 faster than the first one. Focus this morning was on streamlining my arms into each turn and into each finish. Also tried to carry over the feeling of the sculling drills into my armstroke on the swims.
