For those occasions where a comes to the pool to workout on there own, we had added some workouts that they can download. Without a coach on deck assisting, the swimmer must remember the following,
- Maintain stroke technique and proper body position.
- Finish all of the distances in a set. If a workout call for 5 x 200 Free on 3:00, do all 5 and don't take a 4-minute break between #'s 3 and 4. Just adjust the interval to be 3:10. It is better to make all of the distances with little rest, than it is to make all of the distances and not get your heart and lungs working.
- It is you against the clock, so really push yourself. You already made it to the pool, the workout is the easy part.
