Wednesday Workout: Working on our pacing and our heads

This will test your mental and pacing skills. Fast, steady pace you can maintain. But fast. And then stick with it as you fatigue. Your arms will thank you on race day.

 

Warm up:

300 swim, drill, kick
6 x 50 build 1-3, and 4-6
4 x 25 1 fast, 1 easy

Main set:

4 x 200 fast – plenty of rest, 1 min after each
100 easy
2 x 400 fast – upping the distance, 90 seconds rest after each.
100 easy
4 x 100 pull fast – your arms should be tired. Gotta “pull” throughout. Or push through it. Either way, bring it home!

Swim down: 10 mins mixed strokes

Total: 3,100+ meters
