Coach Notes

The swim coach was asked to define any shorthand he or she used in this workout. Their notes should provide some additional context to this swimming workout.

We use gears for our training. 1st Gear being the slowest and 5th gear being the hardest pace you can hold and Sprint being an all out effort.
