Decided to challenge myself with a good set today. I have been reading up on some various sets by coaches. Apparently, with both swimming and running, interval work involving efforts of 3 to 5 minutes are ideal for snapping your body into shape. So, I gave it a shot today in the below workout.

Reverse 400 I.M. Drill

5 x 300 on 4:30 - odds are kick with fins, evens are swim (no fins)
Kicks are as follows:. 100 dolphin on back, 100 back flutter, 100 dolphin on back
Swims are as follows:. 100 free, 100 back, 100 free

100 easy

2000 easy

On the kicks, I got lots of rest. The swims, however, did not feel so good. I did not get very much rest. I was a little discouraged, but I tried to remind myself that a good bit of my training has been kicking with fins. What could I expect? In any case, I had to start somewhere, so today was the day. Hope to improve on this in the next month.
