SCY with swim buddy

Warm up (700)
300 choice - mostly free with a little bit of back
2 x (4 x 50) @ 1:15
1=50 kick w/board
2=25 shooter + 25 kick
3= 25 fist drill + 25 free
4= free, work turns

Set #1 (350)
4 x 50---dive off side, power kick to 15yds, fast breakout, then cruise
- I did 2 on belly with dolphin kick and 2 with flutter kick. I think my flutter kick is stronger. It seemed easier and faster to get to 15y. Wish I could have someone time these to see.
4 x 25 burst + cruise/1:00
- did 2 free, 1 back, and 1 fly
50 EZ

Set #2 (1100)
20 x 50 free with paddles, fins optional @1:00 - didn't use fins
1 - 6 = 3 x 50's with paddle on right hand breathing left, 3 x 50 with paddles on left hand breathing right
- around 38-40 on these
7 - 10 = reverse paddle drill - used PT paddles on these, times were around 45
11-15 regular paddles - 37-38 on these
16-20= DPS free paddles + hypoxic ---no more than 3 breaths per length - breathe every 5 worked out to 3 breaths per length, times were under 40
100 EZ

Set #3 (500)
20 x 25 tempo kick, no fins/40
- times were 28-30, did 1-10 flutter on belly with snorkel, no board. 11-20 was on back alternating dolphin and flutter.

100 Easy

2750 yards

Total for today with both workouts = 5550 yards
