Good workout today with some starts and fast 25's

Main Set
swim 6x around:
50 swim free smooth
25 fast off blocks (mix these up)
rest 10 sec.
25 (same stroke as the one off the blocks) with fast breakout, swim easy to wall
(other than the 10 sec between 25's, wasn't sure about how much rest to take on these. started out with a 2:30 for each round and about halfway went to 3:00
did 2x (fly-back-free). didn't get times but they were around 15-16 for all the fast 25's)
