I completed this workout as a guided swim on my Apple Watch. The heart rate and other metrics associated with this swim were all recorded with the watch during the swim workout. These analytics allow us to dive into the swim workout and analyze performance post-swim to learn from and modify the next workout! You can see all the wearables that MySwimPro connects with here.
Main Set (4x)
The Main Set is four rounds through: 2 x 50s Freestyle at a short rest threshold pace (:40s). Next you go right into 1 x 100 Freestyle Best Average where your goal is to descend the 100s each round of the Main Set. In this workout I descended from 1:09 to :57. I was happy my heart rate peaked around 183 which means I was taxing myself on the last round.
