Today's main set was made up off the top of my head (like most of my swims), and it turned out to be a good one! Even PWB could probably handle it!

Warmup:

500 Free
400 Free Pull
300 Flutter Kick w/ board
200 IM
100 Flutter Kick w/ board
(1500/1500)

Main Set:

Each "200" is on the 3:00, with the 75s on an ascending interval, and the 125s on a descending interval. Made for interesting times as the set went on...

7 x 200 @ 3:00
  • 75 IM (no Free) @ 1:05/ 125 Free @ 1:55
  • 75 IM @ 1:10/125 Free @ 1:50
  • 75 IM @ 1:15/125 Free @ 1:45
  • 75 IM @ 1:20/125 Free @ 1:40
  • 75 IM @ 1:25/125 Free @ 1:35 (1:30+)
  • 75 IM @ 1:30/125 Free @ 1:30** (1:28)
  • 75 IM @ 1:35/125 Free @ 1:25 (1:27)

I was averaging 1:05s on the IMs all the way through, so I was getting a fair amount of rest there, but the harder part was the free intervals.
**Originally when I started the set, my intent was to do 6 rounds, ending at the 1:30 interval, but I finished it at 1:28, and decided to try for one more...though I was unable to make the 1:25 after that much distance in a row.
(1400/2900)

300 EZ Free Pull
(300/3200)

Kick Set w/ short fins:
200 SDK on back @ 3:00
150 SDK on back @ 2:30
100 SDK on back @ 1:30
50 SDK on back @ :30 (went :32)
(500/3700)

100 EZ and out

-----------------------------
3800 Yards ****

    It's honestly not that bad. You just have to remember the next IM interval since you're always leaving on the top (:60) Each one is just :05 later around the clock. Just finish the freestyle before the :60 and you're good to go.

    I suppose these types of intervals are easier on an old school pace clock though. I've never trained with a digital one before.
