Yesterday evening while watching the Olympics they showed Michael Phelps daily schedule, which included 8300 M of swimming. That's his tapering?
My gosh that's over 5 miles! That's more yardage than my all time daily high of 8200 yards! Man he's a machine!
Here's what I did today:
250 - 5 x 50's fast on 1:30 (all under 30 seconds)
250 - 5 x (25 fly fast, 25 free easy) on 1:30
500 yards total
