06/08/04 CCB Masters  Post-Race Practice

Many of the Masters swimmers ran a half marathon over the weekend, or participated in a triathlon, so I wanted to design a practice with no sendoffs, that was easy on the legs, that used a lot of different muscles, and that would still be challenging for those who didn't race. WARMUP: 400400 your choice on your own.MAIN SET: 1800Swim three rounds of the following. The 3 X 100 pull are always done the same way. Don't worry about sendoffs.
