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.

Working on breaststroke and keeping the stroke in front versus a stroke that pull too far back and exposes too much resistance and takes time to get back to the streamline position for the kick to unload.
