I did swim Friday, but for a short 35 minutes as the pool facility had issues with the chemical balance and kicked us out.

You may notice that, despite an extra 5 minutes, I don’t seem to be getting a significant amount of yards. Well, as you can see from the last “set”, I used that time to push harder at the end of the workout with longer intervals. Not surprisingly, my backstroke is faster than my fly, but I did manage to finish those 50 fly. πŸ™‚

Well, you know the drill. Be sure to adjust the intervals, distances, or the entire so that they work for you or just copy and use as is. This is really meant to be inspirational.
