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.

Shark Bait: Gather everyone’s best 50 times for the stroke they want. Line the swimmers up along the wall, shoulder to shoulder. Slowest 50 leaves on zero, next person the appropriate seconds behind… to your fastest swimmer leaves last. If all swim near their best effort, then all should finish close together. Great for racing skills on bringing it home and finishing fast.
