Another day another swim set. Today's focus will be threshold again. If you're just joining us or starting out, feel free to cut down the meters on the beginner set if its too long for you. Everyone started somewhere (including me). And some of us (including me) couldn't even swim 25 meters to start. One step at a time you will reach your goals.
For reference, threshold is the pace you try to race at for a longer distance race. It's not all out, but it's a hard effort.
