Subject: The total yards in swim training
Quick question on the custom plan i got.

In some of my swims the total distance does not match up the sum of the distances given in the blog of that training. Like in the example below. The total is given as 1050 yards where as the sum of the main set+cooldown is 700 yards. What is that i am missing?

Swim: 29 min 1050 yards

Main Set:14m /500 yards

Set #1 400 yards
Practice these warmup drills first for 10 minute before starting your drills:
Bob, Kick and Breath, Kick, Breath and Stroke. Then proceed into these drills:
2x(50 Drill: Kick On Side, 50 Drill: Six Kick Change)
4x(25 Drill: Kick On Back, 25 Freestyle)

Set #2 100 yards
Intervals: 2x50' on 5' rest
Pace: 03m 31s - 03m 10s /100 yards

Cooldown: 200 yards

Pace: - 03m 32s /100 yards
Freestyle at recovery pace

I may see the problem.  You chose the 'new swimmer' option correct?  What race length of plan did you choose?  

Regardless of your answer, do the swim workouts as detailed out...don't try to do the extra 350 yards that is being added to the totals in some of the workouts.

This month we hit the 4,000-yard marker! This will likely be your peak yardage. Drills still make up about 15% of each workout, and we’re continuing with some advanced-level training.

Most of those thinking about tackling a long swim instinctively feel it’s necessary to Do much to build endurance - more yards, harder laps. But a focus on Receiving is ideal for long distances.

Practice these three workouts each week for 4 weeks. Just complete the workouts and notice the changes to your stroke.

I have been able to swim 200-300 yards without stopping for the past couple of weeks, but this morning I couldn’t swim more than 50. Could not eating make a big differance?
