Swim Practice Tonight

This is the first time I'll have been able to hit the water mid-week in quite some time. Here's the plan:

Warm Up:
-- 5 x 100 @ 1:30 easy
-- 200 kick

Main Set:
-- 12 x 100 pull @ 1:30 aerobic pace

Warm Down:
100 easy

The trick is to swim an even main set, holding my heart rate at right around 140 or 145 for the entire set. That should translate to something on the order of 1:17/100, but we'll see how it goes. 

The nice thing about pulling is that you can work your muscles a little harder without committing heart rate reserve. This is because you're wearing a pull-buoy, which has an effect similar to that of wearing a wetsuit.
