Our set of the week is partly IM but mostly freestyle.
IM set this week. Why do these always look so harmless on paper?

Today's set keeps everyone on the same sendoff, and asks you to spend some time on each stroke. Plus some Olympic fun at the end.

This week's set follows the theme of learning how to pace yourself from start to finish through a workout.

A mellow recovery set or something more challenging...you decide.
Today marks the 9th anniversary of Barbara's Masters team, the UVRays. To celebrate the day, they swam a workout filled with "9s."
This main set got many thumbs up today from the Masters group that Barbara coaches.
Mellow 400s today, interspersed with 75s that get faster throughout the set.
