SWIM FORM DRILLSIn the Silver/Gold training plans, if the swim just calls for 'Drill' or '200 yards Drill', then use one of the 4 drills below. If you know your weakness, use the drill appropriate for that weakness, or else rotate evenly through these drills.
You can also certainly work on 1-2 drills in the 'warmup' part if you need the extra practice. Just replace 200-400 yards/meters of the warmups with the drills. Keep the drills limited to 50yards/meters with a rest, then repeat.
