    When that happens to me, I just switch to a recovery workout.

    That's basically what this turned into after the backstroke set. The intervals for the next set were faster than my actual swim time so I adjusted accordingly and just cruised through that set. Kick set was fun though. Was supposed to do it 2x through but ran out of time and could only do it once. The 1 leg kicking was interesting. Now I know what kicking is like for Kelsey.
