    1 x 100. Rest 20-30 and regroup if necessary before repeating.
    (200) 1 x 200 try to hold pace of 100 above
    ~fins okay~
    (200) 50 almost c.u. /50 chg 3 with 3/50 fingertip drag/50 combine all 3
    (200) 2 x 100 on 1:40, 1:55, 2:05, 2:15, 2:40 Think about the correct stroke.
    ~fins off – repeat above~
    (200) 50 almost c.u. /50 chg 3 with 3/50 fingertip drag/50 combine all 3
    (200) 2 x 100 on 1:40, 1:55, 2:05, 2:15, 2:40 Think about the correct stroke.

    Re: Betsy's 1 Hr Workouts

    Friday, May 24
    This was a good workout for several reasons. Most of all, only a few realized that they were doing 16 x 100. Second, unexpectedly we had a bigger group than the last week or two. We had 23 or 24 in 5 lanes. But it worked well since everything was on an interval. The pool closes on holidays, so that may have been why so many were there on Friday (before Memorial Day).

    Warm-Up (900)
    200-300 Swim, choice
    200-300 50 Kick/50 swim
    200-300 as (4-6) x 50 drill/swim, choice

    Main (1600)
    1 x 100 25 swim/25 catch-up, get your time
    2 x 100 choice, same stroke. Count strokes.
    3 x 100 free or 50 non/50 free. Long and strong, under anaerobic threshold.
    4 x 100 pull on ?
    3 x 100 choice, can each be different
    2 x 100 free, good pace
    1 x 100 free, good pace

    Cool-Down (100-200)

    Re: Betsy's 1 Hr Workouts

    Wednesday, June 5
    Note: This didn't go as well as anticipated. Attendance had been under 20 for several workouts, so I thought I could time and get splits.
    However, 26 showed up! Even with an extra lane, making 6, I couldn't do it in 2 groups. Plus, timing 12 at a time was too challenging to get splits. I did get everyone's final time.

    Warm-Up (800-1000)
    200-300 25 drill/75 swim, choice
    100 swim free, perfect stroke
    100 swim all non-free or 25 non/25 free
    200-300 Pull
    200 choice, 25 drill/25 swim

    Main (1600)
    200-400 (8 x 50) at 400 pace for free or (4 x 50) at 200 pace for non-free or 200 IM
    Non-free do odds only; rest on evens. :50, :55, 1:00, 1:10, 1:40
    Divide group into 2 groups:
    Grp 1 will do 200 non-free or IM for time
    Grp 2 will do 400 free for time
    Grp 1 will do another 200 for time, choice
    I will try to get splits.
    300 Recovery (100 pull/100 swim/100 pull)
    200-300 Kick
    200 as 8 x 25 #1-2 swim free with fins, #3-4 swim with no fins, #5-6 Pull with paddles,
    #7-8 Choice stroke and gear

    Cool-Down (200)
    Easy swim
