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.

SKPS = swim, kick, pull, swim
drift = speed up until in the middle of the pool you do 3 strokes at max then drift back down to a stop.
