For the 200 Fly finals, I think the drill should be to fill your goggles with water and focus on your turns.

When I swam in high school at Dynamo we did what was called "The National Event Schedule" which was exactly that. Every single event, fast as you could go, on an interval.

I don't remember the intervals, but they then added up all your times on each event for an "overall winner" (for pride). I think I was second to Eric Wunderlich (a 1996 Olympian) only because I was a distance swimmer and could make up so much time in those events.

I did, for years and years before he was born. Albeit, not as fast, but I competed for 17 years. Warm ups and warm downs don't consist of THAT much. Its like getting warmed up for any other sport in comparison.

GOD, that is another thing that changed dramatically since I've been out of swimming....the suits. :dunno:Not that I could get into one, but I wouldn't be caught dead in one of those bodysuits. I guess I'm "old school"! :cane:

I swim on my own, and I hate boring workouts - so thanks! This is very much appreciated.
