Main Set

50 easy


pull 4 x 75 back on 1:20 w/o paddles:

swim 4 x 75 breast on 1:45: keep the stroke long
(ave 1:25-30, I still don't like this stroke but it is getting a little easier)
swim 4 x 25 fly all out on :40
(around :18-19)
50 easy


pull 4 x 75 free with paddles on 1:20 at about 70% again
