Core #2 - 2x
Speed Slow
Recovery 1-1.5'

Pretty Running - lean forward, roll off your big toes, keep hand above your waist, look about 6 feet in front of you with your eyes, drive your elbows back and never cross your midline with your hands. Pull Drill - Focus will be on learning to 'catch' the water with your forearm and pull yourself through the water. If you feel your lats (the muscles under your arm pits that go down the side of your back) engage, then you are starting to get it. If your shoulders are tired, then you are still using too much shoulder and not enough lats. Kick (Regular) - regular kickboard kick or kick on back with hands over head, fingers locked.

Run TT
Assess Fitness
50
After 10 minute warm up, you are going to run for 30 minutes as hard as you can for the entire 30 minutes. After starting the run, hit your 'Lap' button so you record the average HR over the last 20 minutes. This can be run on the track or measured course (flat). Record the time and get a 10 minute cool down. Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.

Form
WU: 300 easy. Then 'swim golf' = 6 x 50 on 15" rest & count strokes. What combination of time and strokes gives you the lowest 'score?' (Ex: 43 strokes + 45" = 88).

MS: Swim a moderate effort using the same stroke count in WU set. 5 x 100 (10") moderate. 4 x 50 kick (20") moderate.

CD: 200 easy alternating 50 pull, 50 swim.

Bike LT Test
Assess Fitness
BT: Long warm-up of at least 30 minutes. Then ride a 30 minute time trial all out, race effort. Use a flat, out and back course. This can also be done on the trainer. This is a very hard effort. 10 minutes into the time trial punch the lap button on your heart rate monitor. Afterwards, record your average heart rate for the last 20 minutes. Also record distance covered or average speed. Cool down for at least 30 minutes.

WU: 2 x 100IM on 20" rest.
MS: Twisters
1 x 100 on 1:50,
2 x 100 on 1:45,
3 x 100 on 1:40,
4 x 100 on 1:35,
5 x 100 on 1:30.
CD: 300

IM - Individual Medley - Fly, back, breast, free. Twisters - The twisters mean the set 'twists' down and gets faster (or the rest gets shorter). So you look at the wall clock or your watch, and 1:50 after you leave for #1, you go again. 1:45 after you leave on #2, you go again, and so on...
