L. S. D. playing with breathing rhythm, with Chris and Kate

warm up:

600 choice


drill set:

4×75 (25 kick/50 drill)

odds: Drill is single arm drill

evens: drill is 2-stroke rhythm drill

4×50 on cruise+10 sec

odds: 25 breathe to the left/25 breathe to the right

evens: breathing 2 strokes left/2 strokes right

4×25 swim, build


2×800, with 1 minute rest between

#1 change your breathing pattern every 4th lake

#2 change your breathing pattern on the even 50s

No need to go fast here, or even to look at the pace clock. The idea is to change your breathing pattern periodically, and to take note of what that does to your stroke balance and efficiency. Count your strokes every now and then.


last set:

4×125 (25 back/75 kick, build/25 free)
