I was looking back through the Open Water work-out thread by Anne Cleveland this week and found the body position drills, which I thought could help me out. I needed a mostly "drill" day after the hard interval day yesterday. Here's what I did:

WARM-UP (500 yards):
100 fr
100 br
100 bk
100 pull
100 kick w/ fins

DRILLS W/ FINS (1100 yards):
100 spear
100 (50 pull/50 kick)
100 sharkfin
100 pull/kick
100 sail
100 pull/kick
100 corkscrew
100 pull/kick
100 back kick
100 pull/kick
100 fr swim

COOL-DOWN (600 yards):
100 fr
100 pull
100 fr
100 br
100 bk
100 fr

I'm still using zoomer style fins for most of my drills since my ex-runner's legs still haven't developed a strong kick yet. Hopefully the fins will help move that along at the same time that they help me keep momentum in my drills.
