I recently began coaching a new swimmer who wants to do a triathlon. So today's swim was done in 2 parts with a 30 minute break while I worked with her.

400 swim free
200 IM drill
200 kick choice (rev IMO)
4 x 50 on 1:00: odds 1st 12.5 fast; evens last 12.5 fast
(did all free, around 37)

3x around:
200 free swim on 3:15
(did these just under 2:45)
swim 3 x 50 back on :50 fast (make the interval)
(did all of these around :40)
30 sec. between rounds
50 easy

30 min break while I worked with my swimmer. Probably swam 200 with her.

kick 12 x 25 on :40 (no fins or board):
odds, 15 SDK underwater fast, rest easy; evens smooth
(15 sdk is getting me to mid-pool. Need to work on getting a little more distance per kick)

swim down 100
2700 yards
