06/01/04 CCB Masters  200s Descend

I wasn't sure how this practice would play out with the team, because I haven't tried it myself, but after the first couple of 200s, everyone got into the challenge of descending the 200s, and it became fun. I didn't assign any sendoffs. Each lane decided on their sendoffs. I was more concerned that they do the 200s with descending times than that they meet a certain sendoff.WARMUP: 400400 on your own.MAIN SET: 2000You'll be doing five 200s freestyle, with some shorter swims in between.
