Distance Training workout

Terry Pyle and I swam on the Coast Guard Blue Dolphins back in the 1970s, and she still trains for distance events.   Here's a workout idea she shared with me recently.  "Let's see: I'm pretty boring when it comes to work- outs, but I like the steadiness of this one.  This takes me one hour."

250 yards back kick with fins
