Once you know you are tough, how much time and rest for 10 seconds, you will know how to configure your settings. For example, if you need to swim two lengths about 1 minute 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds, and repeat interval will be 1:30. Repeat 10 times, and it will take you 15 minutes to complete the Setup. On paper, it looks like: 10 x 50/1:30.

Efforts to do a few lengths of around 60%, and then relax it gradually, and elementary backstroke last lengths. Float, relax and enjoy the feeling in the water. As a warm up, break out of your cooling into small, manageable pieces: 4 x or 8 x 25 more than 50 years, repeat. Do not skip this step! The Sprint you do, more cooling time, you need to exercise your muscles to recover and prepare for the next.
