02/02/06 CCB Masters  IM Sets

Thursday is usually IM day for our Masters team, so today we did a set in each stroke. Several of our swimmers are doing a 4-hour meet this weekend at Exeter, so we left some time at the end of practice for two broken 100s. They're mostly training right through this meet, but we wanted to do a little bit of speed work. The meet is all 50s and 100s.WARMUP: 400400 your choice on your ownWARMUP/FLY SET: 400With fins.4 X 100 swum as 50 of 4/4/4/ Free (4 strokes fingertip drag, 4 strokes high elbow, 4 strokes overarm) + 50 of 2L/2R Fly, focus on straight-arm recoveryBACKSTROKE SET: 400No fins.Swim 4 rounds of the following:2 X 25 backstroke with pull buoy.
