This week's set can sneak up on you...three times.
This set starts out feeling smooth and easy, and ends with some intense cadences, especially for backstroke and breaststroke.
First local triathlon is this weekend, featuring a 500-yard swim.
This set works best if you have two Tempo Trainers, but one TT works just fine.
This week's set gives coaches a chance to coach and swimmers a chance to hone certain skills and then see how well (and for how long) they can implement those skills in some IM swims.
Always so many fine points to work on with open turns. This practice give you lots of opportunities.
IM set this week. It's designed to keep a wide variety of swimmers on the same "sendoff/turnaround."
With triathlon season already in motion, many masters swimmers need to be "encouraged" to practice their bilateral breathing.
How's your sense of pace at 100s and 200s? This week's set asks swimmers to do some descend work and negative-split work...and sometimes both.
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.
