Incorporating some time to really think about how you interact with the wall is a good idea. Sometimes we take these frequent occurrences for granted and just think everyone is just doing it right. Not always the case.
When starting the practice yesterday, the goal was to teach the masters swimmers to be better breaststrokers, while at the same time, give them a practice most of them enjoyed from a fitness standpoint.
We created a short sequence that got the swimmers thinking of the correct front half of the body for breaststroke extension.
The goal of this set is to have the heart rate stay as close as possible to where it starts. When the interval gets a bit tougher, and the distance a bit longer, you’ll know if you started with the proper stroke count.
Getting the week started by mixing up the strokes.
The title simply means to not overswim the first part of the set. Wait for the tough stuff that’s coming.
Mixing things up to start up the week, and get the legs going.
Sometimes a mix of effort is demanded through some creative math.
Here’s a set that is MUCH tougher than you think if you just follow the prescribed stroke-count pattern. Have fun.
A nice 200 set for lunch at noon masters practice today.
