This week's set is good for a group with mixed abilities.
Here's a mini set inspired by yesterday's drill of the week featuring Olympian Roque Santos.
This week's set is meant as a recovery set after a speed day, but it can sneak up on you if you do the 75s correctly. At the bottom is a modified version for less-speedy lanes.
Two weeks in a row: a set that will keep the IM swimmers AND the freestylers happy (with some breaststroke love at the end).
I have to say, I'm not a fan of hypoxic training for masters swimmer, but I am a fan of learning efficiency to the point of not needing air.
Continuing to focus on freestyle breathing patterns this week. Today we worked on bilateral breathing.
Experimenting today with how changing your breathing pattern...specifically, giving yourself more air during the course of a swim...can affect your pace, speed, and energy.
This one was just plain fun. Nobody wanted to get out of the pool at the end.
Making sure you reach your specified distance off each turn is very important. So important, we use noodles.
Aerobic distance set plus an aquatic version of the Olympic event of Keirin.
This week's set asks you to tire the body with 100-125 yards of swim or kick, then climb out and dive in for a really FAST 25...then repeat.
June 14th is Flag Day in the USA, so we did a little flag work today with Masters.
