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.

Purpose of set- just came back from holiday break, we take 1 day rest with old tech suits heading into mid-season 2.5 day prelim/final meet. Mentally learning to race without ‘feeling’ perfect more important than physically feeling great in my opinion, so we made sure to sprint a bit heavy this Wednesday before recovery Thursday.
UWK = underwater kick
BPK = body position kick
SC= Scull
DR= Drill
NS= Negative Split
AR= Active Recovery
RB = Reduce Breathing
WB= Weight Belt (Kap7 choice of belt- 5/7.5/10lb]
DS= Drag Sox
LS= not real acronym, but essentially all out sprint.
