friday, june 4
WORKOUT: masters at the hamilton YMCA (distances given in yards)
200 warm up
4 x 100 backstroke building (building = getting faster each set. so in this case, each 100 faster than the last)
4 x 100 kick building
20 x 50 free, divide into sets of 5 x 50, building each
200 warm down
total distance: 2200
-> backstroke still sucks, maybe i will start working on this when i get up to doing swims on my rowing days. maybe i will do all technical on those days and work on backstroke in particular.
-> since i am not yet following pace times, i just made a conscious effort to do building.
-> the 50s in this set were excellent for working on consistent flip turns during freestyle sets. will keep this set in mind for specifically working on flip turns.
