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.

Boat scull: on back, feet first. Chair: like sitting in a chair sculling forward.

It is cool that these are posted, but I can’t help but notice nearly every single one is classified under “base building”. Effectively all various heavy aerobic workouts. No real variety in ideas, just a lot of longer swimmer with little rest.
