MAIN SET #1: ???? Approximately 1500 + 200
This set will start easy and end hard. You are doing a set Ė 3 X 50 Ė several times and with a tighter rest interval each time. Take a short break (about 30 seconds) between the sets to recoup and prepare. Your goal is to swim the set approximately 10 times until you canít make the sendoff. So figure out where you might have to bail out, and count back 10 sets from that and thatís your starting point. Have fun! You can do any stroke or combination of strokes (e.g., breast down/free coming back) so long as you make the sendoff.

The goal is not to blast your way through the initial sets. Your goal is to conserve your energy until you really need it at the end.
