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.

Pinky focus is on freestyle, with the pinky leading the way out of the water past the hip. I find it helps the swimmers clear their shoulders as well as extending their stroke.
