Evens:  50 drill/25 swim

4×25 swim, descend 1-4

Moderate swims are at your usual 60-70% level of effort, with a focus on good technique.  The uptempo swims are in the 70-80% level of effort range, while trying to maintain that good technique from the moderate swims.  Stay on the clock, with no breaks in the set.  The intervals and pacing should provide the rest you need.



Last set:

4×50 on cruise+10 sec, ascend 1-4

4×75 pull, breathing every 3rd stroke/5th stroke/7th stroke by 25

100 easy
