Valentine's Day Main Set & Playlist - February 14, 2012

A red-hot cardio workout today -- the traditional Valentine's Day set for the Masters team that Barbara coaches.   This workout takes about 60 minutes, and is great for a group of mixed-ability swimmers.  It's also a good team builder.  A Valentine's Day playlist is at the bottom.   Share the love on V-Day!

WARMUP:  400

6 X 75 with fins on 1:30; each 75 is 25 Back, 25 Breast, 25 Free
#1 and #4:  Backstroke is up tempo
#2 and #5:  Breaststroke is up tempo
#3 and #6:  Freestyle is up tempo

MAIN SET:  1000
10 X 100 on 3:00
These are not all-out, 100%-effort swims.  You're aiming for your best time plus 10 to 15%.  Examples of best times plus 10-15% can be found in the accompanying PDF file.  

It's OK to switch strokes (and equipment) during the set, so long as the effort level is maintained.  Example:  Alternate 1 X 100 free with fins and 1 X 100 breaststroke with no equipment.
