09/20/05  CCB Masters  Stroke Drills and Workin' It Down (Up) to 90% Effort

This practice took about 70 minutes including warmup/warmdown, so we ran over our 60-minute time. Shorten it by doing 6 X 25s instead of 8 X 25s. (Our lane #1 (slowest lane) did 6 X 25s.)WARMUP: 400400 your choice, on your ownMAIN SET: 2000/1800The 25s in this set are for drill/technique work. The main part of the main set are the 300, 150s, and 100s. The idea is that as the set progresses, you gradually build your effort level on these swims at the same time that you are getting more rest. 8 X 25s EZ Freestyle on approx :10 RIFocus is keeping one goggle in the water during the breath, and looking back as you breathe.1 X 300 Free pull with pull buoy.
