Run on a flat path, track or treadmill. You can use the 8/2 method of 8 minutes running, 2 minutes walking. RPE should be light - 5/6 out of 10.
Kick/Balance Drills Day. Same workout as last week except after 400 yards of warm up and kick/swim drills you will take a 2 minute rest and then see how many lengths in a row you can do, using any stroke you want for the last 100.
Refresher from last week: Kick with your hands by your side, and your head down for as far as you can. When you need a breath of air, turn your head to the side, but try NOT to pick up your head. Try to kick one length and then swim the next length.
Focus on pressing your chest into the water on the kick phases and carry this feeling over to the swim portion of the workout. Stretch when you are done.
