Comments:
I received a workout coach Chuck emailed to me to try with 5000 yds of 500s. As I began the first set, I wondered why was I training for 5K OW swims anyway? Actually I like the 5K OW swim, but it's so intimidating to train as needed. Always in the back of my mind is the feeling that when we line up to start the race, I want that confidence knowing that I have prepared as best I could.
