Swim Drills Day. Swim at least 4 lengths to warm up (100) - you can alternate free style and sidestroke or breast stroke.

Today we will work on something called the Catch-up stroke: Push off the wall with both arms extended in front of you touching each other. Start with the right arm and take a full stroke, coming to rest in the forward position, before the left arm starts its pull. Repeat this all the way to the other side of the pool.

Keep a strong kick going and focus on the pull portion of the stroke. You will alternate 'Catch-Up' drill with one length of freestyle until you have completed 600 yards or 24 lengths.

Off Day!

Ride on a flat course or spin bike. Focus on keeping your pedal stroke smooth and learning to be 'light' on the pedals for the first 10'. RPE should be light - 5/6 out of 10. Then for the next 10' sit back on the saddle, put the bike in a bigger gear or resistance mode and spin at a lower, harder cadence. RPE should be about 7/8. Once you have finished that, go back to spinning easier. RPE should be light - 5/6 out of 10.

Kick/Balance Drills Day. Same workout as last week except after 400 yards of warm up and kick/swim drills you will take a 2 minute rest and then see how many lengths in a row you can do, using any stroke you want for the last 100.

Refresher from last week: Kick with your hands by your side, and your head down for as far as you can. When you need a breath of air, turn your head to the side, but try NOT to pick up your head.

Try to kick one length and then swim the next length. Focus on pressing your chest into the water on the kick phases and carry this feeling over to the swim portion of the workout. Stretch when you are done.
