50-minute swim workout, mid-distance workout, 2-10-21

Swimming alone is hard at times. While I’m grateful for the use of the pool, I miss my swim tribe. I miss my coaches. However, like most swimmers, not swimming when you have access to a pool really isn’t an option. (Running is even less of an option if you are me. LOL) So, I swim alone and write workouts and try to vary them. Hopefully, if you’ve found my blog and these swim workouts, you’re finding them helpful and are either using them as is or cobble a few together by mixing and matching sets. Please adjust the intervals to your speed.
