Good solid warm-up with a focus on IM, specifically the cross-over turn (back to breast transition). Pre-set is off the blocks to get some dive work in.

The athletes are performing a swing dive on the odd ones. The focus is dropping the head to the arms, not bring the arms up to the head on the start.

Main-set today is broken swims (200s’ and 100s’). For the 200s’ the athletes are adding up the 50, 100 and 50 to a good fast 200 time. Same deal for the 100s’ (adding up to a good fast 100 time).

The IM inclined athletes are swimming the broken 200’s:
50 Butterfly on 2:00 – from dive
100 Back / Breast on 4:00 – from push
50 Freestyle on 2:00 – from push

IMers are swimming the broken 100’s:
50: Back / Breast x 25 (working cross-over transition turn), both on 2:00

The breast stroke inclined athletes are swimming the 200’s Breastroke. The 100s’ are to be swum breast stroke but with triple pull-outs off all walls. Backstroke inclined swimming back. All else freestyle.
