Ever wonder how that swimmer in the lane next to you makes it look so easy? Me too. Today I felt that way for the first time since I've been back in the pool. The guy next to me was hammering out one lap after the other, switching his strokes up from freestyle to the butterfly, and flip turning like a mad man. It was a thing of beauty.
So, what did I do? I stuck with the plan. I hopped in the water, put on my goggles and used my easy swim stroke to glide through the water while "The Hammer" next to me was doing his own rendition of Hammer Time.
Here is how you can pull it off without much stress, and still look like you know what you're doing:
600yds with 30 seconds rest
300yds with 20 seconds rest
4x100yds with 10 seconds rest
4x5yds with 5 seconds rest
