Today’s FINIS Set of the Week comes from Bryn Lewis, who currently works for FINIS as their Product Marketing Lead. Bryn formerly swam for University of North Texas where she was a team record holder. The butterflier swam under former coach Joe Dykstra, who now coaches at University of Utah.
This was the primary test set that we did to evaluate where we were at in our training. Not only did it serve as an evaluation of where we were physically, but it also was a great training set that helped us build endurance. It easily was my most memorable workout from swimming at North Texas.
