Overall my swimming felt better today and the results are satisfactory. The focus was on the 200 freestyle sets at the start and finish to build pace in second 100, and then swim quality 50s fast with a long six-kick stroke. Swims with the equipment were to focus on best possible technique at fast pace with strong effort. When doing these kinds of multiple swim sets, the equipments needs to be organized and prepared ahead of time for quick transitions between swims.

The results of the final round of 200s on 3:00 are my best this year at that interval, but my HR was high averaging 160-180. I was struggling the last four 200s to keep the my FR stroke functional. But I still managed to swim the final fast 50s in good form using the six-kick to to anchor a longer rotational stroke.
