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.

our training zone codes are based on the 3s system and are roughly equivalent to the standard used by USA-S:

z1b = REC
z1a = EN1
z2 = EN2
z3b/a = EN3
z4b = SP1
z4a = SP2
z5b/a = SP3

our hashtags are for the 5 different lanes/levels our senior group is divided into, ranging from #SR-1 which is age 13+ off-season fitness for high school to #SR-5 which is athletes on a path to sign with an NCAA school.
