Posture Focus - Recovery Workout
Objective: Drill slowly with posture focus, then swim 100 yards at relaxed pace trying to feel the focus from the shorter drill repeats.
Total Distance = 1400 yards (plus 5 min vertical kicking)
Before getting in: Practice swimming posture on the pool deck. On a mat, lie on your back, tilt pelvis to connect hips and ribs, then extend neck and press chin back to head and chest. Try the same posture standing. Then get into the pool:
Set 1 - Vertical Kicking; 5 x 45 seconds kicking followed by 15 seconds
Set 2 - Repeat Subsets A & B with a different focus each time (see below). All repeats are Training Cat EN1. In set A, drill focusing intensely on the specific posture focus in the "Repeat Focus" list, below. In set B, just swim 100 with flow, trying to feel that focus rather than thinking too hard about it.
Set 3 - Cool Down; Dist = 200 yards
