06/28/03  Breast/IM Practice

06/28/03 Breast/IM PracticeI'm back in my home town of Wooster, OH, this weekend to visit by Dad, and the swimming is GREAT in Wooster. It's a town of just 25,000 people, but the high school has a 50-meter indoor pool with lots of overhead and side windows. It's almost like swimming outdoors. Awesome. Went there for a swim this morning. I wanted to do a breaststroke practice, but combine this with some IM work -- working on my transitions from breast to free, and then from back to breast to free.WARMUP: 400With fins.400 IM alternating 25 drill/25 swim, with the drills all head-lead drills.MAIN SETS: 750 + 750 + 750 + 500 = 2750BREAST/FREE SET #1With fistgloves.Twice through the following kick sequence (250 total), with no stoppinh.
