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.

Many intensities are defined by gears. 1st = recovery…5th = All out. I find describing speeds by gears allows swimmers to understand that no matter how fast they are going to swim they need to be in control on the mechanics (gears)
