Continuing to Taper

Easy swim today with several hard intervals:

300 warmup
400 stroke work
Broken 600 – 10sec rest interval on the 100. Hold 1:35 per 100
200 cooldown
Bursts of race simulation pace using short intervals maintains and even improves muscle recruitment patterns. Not doing any high intensity training this week can leave you feeling “flat” on race day. Fitness abilities are lost first when the workload is reduced and race-like intensity is the key to maintaining performance.
My good friend Barb Brooks, who now lives in KC, paced me on the 2nd 50 of each 100 today. Thanks Barb for working that negative split!
