IM set today, but with some freestyle relief.
Working on a few triathlon skills today: pace-line drafting; sighting; and how to settle into a sustainable pace after pushing the pace to the first buoy.
Here's a mini set inspired by yesterday's drill of the week featuring Olympian Roque Santos.
Mixing up the strokes at the beginning of the week challenges some swimmers, but it keeps things interesting!
While the main set sounds simple, it can be one of the toughest sets swimmers do.
Which is more advantageous for swimmers: steady exhale or forceful exhale?
Working your walls and legs is becoming more and more important in our sport.
A simple practice that starts very easy, but as the distance increases, the intervals decrease.
Teaching swimmers how to work isn't just for kids... masters need a little help too.
Some short and some longer swims to start the week off at masters practice.
Needed to give the shoulders a little break today, so did this main set entirely with fins (except at the end) and mostly kick.
A simple set that has a recovery piece that's just a bit longer... affording you more rest if you maintain your pace.
Really packed lanes mean's you just can't swim that far... so you'll need to demand performance at a more consistent level.
