03/01/04   IM and Breaststroke Practice in 20-Yard Pool

03/01/04 IM and Breaststroke Practice in 2-Yard PoolI had to take it easy today for the first part of the practice because I was in a 20-yard, 4-lane pool during the senior-swim hour, and I didn't want to be thrashing around too much so as to disturb the other swimmers. I really admire any senior who comes to the pool to swim, walk, talk, or just paddle around, and I like to give them their space. I hope I have their energy and determination when I become a senior. Toward the end of the hour, the pool cleared out and I was able to use the swim tether and GO FOR IT.I didn't do an official warmup. I started with drills.MAIN SET #1: 1920With fins.Swim 4 rounds of the following.
