Do the set as a group!  Swim four rounds of the following with no extra rest between rounds.  Try to descend your time 1-4 on the 100 IMs throughout the set.   Fins are optional.  We had a second group of swimmers on 1:05 for the 50s and 2:15 for the IMs.

Option #1:  6 X 100 choice; descend 1-3 and 4-6.  Rest interval is approx. 20 seconds.
Option #2:  3 X 200 choice; descend 1-3 if doing IM or FRIM; all others descend 1-2 and then negative-split #3.  Rest interval approx. 30 seconds.
Option #3:  1 or 2 X 400 choice depending on speed and available time; negative split AND descend 1-2.
