This week's swim training workout from SwimmingWorldMagazine.com is a long and strenuous one. The set features 31 x 200 metre sets!
The idea is to descend by round. Descending means to swim each round faster than the one before so that you're working harder and swimming faster the more tired you get, pushing your limits. This is the main focus of the set, you should start out slow and work up to 100% effort by the last round.

1 x 200 free hypoxic 3 @ 3:00
After round 10: 200 specialty #1 off the block all out
