I Dislove Breaststroke

I just don't like it. I wish I did; done right it is a tough workout. Even though non-swimmers think it is the "easy" stroke, that doesn't make it an easy stroke. Or maybe I'm just not coordinated. Either way, I cannot help but groan when Tim says "breaststroke". I've sworn I wouldn't kvetch any more about it many times, but it happens anyway. Thank God for the nice solid reps of freestyle in between the breast.

warmup (all distances free with last 50 breast) : 200, 150, 100, 50

main set:
100 breast kick, 75 breast double kick, 50 fast breast, 25 breast on your back
3 x 200's free descending

100 breast kick, 75 breast double kick, 50 fast breast, 25 breast on your back
3 x 150's free descending

100 breast kick, 75 breast double kick, 50 fast breast, 25 breast on your back
3 x 100's free descending

last set: 2 x 50's breast, 2 x 50's free
