Here's an IM and cords set that I did this morning in a 25-meter pool.

If you practiced last week's drill (Breaststroke - Wall Pull), you should be ready for this week's breaststroke set.

Here's an election-day station workout where you get to choose Red State... or Blue State at every station.


IM & Tether Practice

This is for 20-yard pool.


IM & Kick Main Set

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Apr 24, 2008 07:00AM

IM 100s for a main set, but with only 3 strokes of fast fly (then switch to drill or freestyle to finish the fly length). The point is to get several chances to practice race-pace fly...and not to spend any time practicing slow-pace survival fly. The set targets those swimmers in our group who are going to nationals and need to practice race-pace fly for the 100 IM and for the 50 and 100 fly.


Breaststroke Pushing Threshold

By Barbara Hummel to Silver (Intermediate) | Apr 15, 2008 11:17AM

Was trying to push threshold in various ways today -- with overdistance 225s, with underwater swimming, with fast 25s on short rest, and with the tether.


Breaststroke Main Set with Tempo Trainer & Tether

By Barbara Hummel to Gold (Advanced) | Apr 08, 2008 10:40AM

Just a tough set that makes you hold things together (like cadence and fast hands) as you are experiencing the fatigue of a 200 race.


Dolphin Kick and Breaststroke Tether Workout

Here's a workout that will make you thankful for having a 20-yard pool rather than 25.


Main Set 8 X 200 Plus Tether Set for Those Headed to Championships

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | Mar 18, 2008 09:42AM

8 X 200 can be kinda boring, but we alternated one pull and one swim with fins (descend the fins), and this made the set more interesting and challenging. Swimmers were really CRANKING on the final 200. We modified the set for the intermediate and beginner lanes. Those headed to NEMSCY Champs next week did a separate tether set.
