Distance Swimmer's Delight

Ryan Woodruff
 

We did the following set after about 3,000 yards of warmup, breathing pattern, and technique work.  The efforts were excellent, with swimmers totaling times that were 20-30 seconds faster than their best mile, 10-20 seconds faster than their best 1,000 and 5-10 seconds faster than their best 500.  Enjoy!
