This swim workout is a great race prep swim workout. The main set starts with a hard 200 that simulates the get out speed needed to start the swim. A good fast starting 200 will help establish position in your swim wave and a good rhythm. The 100s that follow will also teach you how to settle into race pace/tempo. The 50s ending the Main Set allow you to rest your body and stroke before heading into Round 2.
