Masters swimming workouts 11- Aggressive drafting in open water and long distances
In this masters swimming workout we are going to practice long distance swimming and a little work on “Aggressive Drafting”.
Before we start it is important to understand that we never grab a swimmer , touch his leg or pull him down, even if he swam on us and pulled our leg.
But !! we have to know how it feels??(because it’s going to happen to you) And if someone punches you, just smile and swim WEST.
