#6 Even pace

On the odd 500s, pick up your pace by tightening your abdominals (draw your belly button back to your spine), cleaning up your alignment, work on your streamlines and increase the tempo of your kick.  Try to keep your arm turnover constant.  No pull buoys on these.  You’ll need your legs.  On the even 500s, you can pull if desired.  Maintain a steady and even pace through out.



last set:

4×75 (25 kick/25 drill/25 swim), choice of strokes
