    Comments:
    • Arrived to the pool feeling tired & sore, but after warm up I was ready to try making a good effort.
    • Warm Up - The usual moderate smooth pace with a focus on technical stroke details.
    • Set 1 - My BR Kick is becoming stronger so I can do more breaststroke, Coach adjusted my body position with more streamlined extension off the kick transition to pull.
    • Set 2 - Working on extending the smooth, controlled :32/50 pace into 100s, and later 200s. Did 1 min & 2 min intervals for enough recovery to get HR back down to 11/6 and keep technique as best possible. The progress so far is good considering this is my 3rd week of higher intensity swimming with intervals.
    • Set 3 - Joel and I did these together, hence the descending times as we were flat out racing each other on the last two 50s.
    • Warm Down - I have been doing different strokes in recovery and and warm down swims to get in more exposure to all the strokes.
