Why are fins so HARD?

I love when people who don't swim say "Oh, you are cheating, using fins?" For me, fins are nearly impossible. They rob me of my oxygen and make me feel like I'm doing water Pilates (not a bad idea perhaps?) while doing a full-out sprint. Unfortunately, I swim with Lanshin who is undeniably the world champion finner. If they would only add a fin event in the Olympics, she would win. Feet down. And I get to chase her during fin workouts. PHEW!

*warmup: 3 x 250's with first 50 easy, last 50 strong

add fins for:

*5 x 300's first and fifth slower than the rest
*200 easy kick
*3 x 300's done as 100 fast, 150 relaxed, last 50 fast
