Coach Mindy Taylor, this one's for you!

A few years ago, I was coached at Nitro by former USA National pentathlon team member Mindy Taylor. One of the sets that she challenged me with from time to time was 10 x 100 @ 1:15. Despite multiple attempts over the course of several months, I consistently failed on this set. Yesterday, I slept in and swam in the outdoor 25 meter pool at Life Time. The weather was very nice, and the pool temperature was ideal. So I decided to try 10 x 100 @ 1:25, the scm equivalent of Mindy's challenge set, and this time I conquered it. Here is my full workout:

1000 swim
400 pull
10 x 100 @ 1:25, holding 1:20, felt strong throughout and maintained a six beat kick
400 pull
10 x 50 kick @ 1:30
200 easy

3500 meters
