- I am continuing to make progress with the dryland program and higher intensity swimming with intervals. Still having some sore muscles, and tired legs, but there is enough energy to make a good effort each session.
- Warmup - Working on the front end of freestyle, and alternating with backstroke.
- Set 1 - Trying to swim a strong controlled pace with with consistent front end technique, effortless streamlining turns, and steady, smooth, but not hard kick.
- Set 2 - More of free/back combination swimming.
- Set 3 - Conditioning for fin swimming later in season in sprint sets.
