Main Set Thursday - Bilateral Breathing

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 23, 2013 01:32AM

Main Set Tuesday - Boot Camp!

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Apr 30, 2013 11:05AM

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.


Main Set Monday - Pacing and Technique 25s

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jun 11, 2012 04:24PM

Main Set Thursday - July 14, 2011

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Jul 14, 2011 11:44AM

Swimmers on the Masters team that I coach have a big triathlon this weekend (in Fairlee, VT). Thinking that they might need a bit of taper today, I gave them the following set, which isn't too strenuous, but provides lots of opportunities to practice drafting, sighting, and bilateral breathing.
