    This is an awesome workout. I'm going to use it next time I need a fly workout. I'll need fins to do it though, but I guess that's all right since you use fins too.

    I did 4 of these yesterday on 1:45 at about 1:12-15 and it about did me in! You're a beast!!!

    That was a tough set! The lactic acid really kicks in that last length. But the rest of the workout was pretty easy.

    I expect to see some Merman workouts from you soon.

    That's pretty impressive!

    I like the heading too. Mermaid workout.
    It sounded nice and pleasant. Until the torture set got underway.

    Thanks Quick!

    I haven't used the MF for about 6 months because of some tendonitis in the top of my foot (from dropping the MF on it, lol). But I think it really helps with SDKs and building leg and core strength. My SDKs need some serious work after much neglect during LC.

    Try one! They're fun and add variety to a workout.

    Hey Fort,

    Look forward to your pool sessions as well.
    The monofin seems to have been a big plus... even if it's dangerous.

    I might actually buy one this year instead of just talking about it.

    Don't forget the indirect gridge with me that Chris put you in for 50 Fly.

    And imagine that, you and I are doing the same events. Who'd a thunk it? How ya feel about a 100 Fly challenge? If you seeded something reasonable, I challenge you to best under seed.
