2005-03-03 Swim Class

Swim class. 100 pull, 100 kick, 100 swim warmup. Main set 2x(200/150/100/50 kick w/fins, 300/200/100 swim w/fins). 150 cooldown. I took off my fins for the last 300 of the swim w/fins because the fins had rubbed my big toes raw.

I usually don't like swimming with fins because they make things SOOOO easy. But doing 2200 yards with them did bring to my attention a few important things. 1: I don't point my toes enough, and 2: My kick is too wide. My first regular swim sets after taking off the fins really made these two points clear. I should probably add some longer kick-with-fins sets from time to time.
