Was trying to push threshold in various ways today — with overdistance 225s, with underwater swimming, with fast 25s on short rest, and with the tether.
Wanted to work all the strokes today and give my knees a rest, so almost all of this practice is fins (and some Tempo Trainer).
Main focus is USMS nationals in 5 weeks, but this weekend is the local USMS championships, so a mini taper seemed like the right thing to do today.
Here’s a workout that will make you thankful for having a 20-yard pool rather than 25.
Main set is 20 X 100. Lots of choice, and a chance to practice going fast.
One of my favorite practices for breaststroke. You go into each of the swims with slight leg and aerobic fatigue, and have to maintain a steady, quick cadence for the entire swim.
