About half the team are doing a local triathlon this weekend, and many were tired from long bikes and runs, so we did something a little easy today. We did a couple of long swims with fins, incorporating all the strokes (to use different muscles) and lots of dolphin kick on the back (air and abs). Then we did a short, more difficult, set at the end.WARMUP: 400400 your choice, on your own.FIN SET #1: 800Wear fins for the entire set. Swim continuously through the following.
