Training individual portions of the 200 IM this week.
The next time your coach asks you to work on a particular skill, and they tell you with a sense of urgency, or demand, give this a try.

This week's set combines speedwork and easy recovery swimming...a good mix for mid-season speedwork.

Another set this week that helps swimmers train for the SCM season while in a SCY pool.
How to train for LCM in an SCY pool? This week's set features broken 125s and broken 75s... to get you ready to race a 100 or 50 LCM.
