Weekly Swim Sets: Friday, 13th November 2015

This week pair of off season swim plans continue with the simple, mostly steady work we’ve been doing over the last month. Wednesday’s session threw in a small amount of work on a tidy kick, but was otherwise an even paced session. Thursday focussed on stroke recovery looking to improve rotation, reach and hand entry for the swimmers.
