The warmup set is the fun part, although the main set was a bit different than usual and fun, although a different type of fun. If I could, I’d do some wacky relays with friends. Alas, I’m alone in my lane still and limited to a 50-minute workout. But I’m in the pool, swimming, swimming, swimming.

Be sure to adjust the intervals and distances if necessary, or if you want. You also just take some sets and do those and skip others. That’s the beauty of being a masters swimmer and/or swimming alone.

50-minute workout, fun workout

500 warmup (~7:30 min)

Warmup set (600 yds, 12:10 min)
4 x 50 on :50
These are breath control. Start at breathing every 2nd stroke for the first 25 and adding a stroke for breathing every 25. So, the 1st 50 would be 25 breathing every 2nd stroke/25 breathe every 3rd. 2nd 50–25 breathe every 4th stroke/25 breathe every 5th, etc.
