Set #2 IM
4 rounds of
25 FL on :30 Avg 22+

75 FL-BK-BR on 1:30 Avg 1:18
100 IM on 2:00 Descend 1:39-1:35
Goal is to keep 25-50-75 consistent on SPL and time throughout set

I mimicked parts of this practice last week and share them as a part of my logging routine from time to time.

I only did the 50s on the free set and in addition to B/S/P, kept a focus of holding spl throughout. My results:
3@ 4x50 on 1:00 -:50
1-4 :46 - :43
5-8 :43 -:42
9-12 :41 -:38
I couldn't break :41 until I added a 15th and 16th stroke on at least one of the lengths.

On the IM set:
4@ 25-50-75-100
25 FL avg. :25
50 FL-BK avg. :45
75 FL-BK-BR avg. 1:25
100 IM avg. 1:45

I forgot about descending the 100s so my only focus there was to keep spl. I also took an average of :30 rest between repeats.

My PFI is to first keep this consistent, then make it 'easier', then improve on the consistency first by shortening rest then improving time; all while maintaining ease. B/S/P focus will come into play big time.
