The 12 Days of Christmas (Swim Workout Style)

And my Christmas present to you….4, 125 yards.

My favorite part of this workout (well besides not doing the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th day of Christmas due to time constraints) is on the 12th Day of Christmas you get to practice your victory finish! Some of my teammates informed me that UCLA does this.  They thought it was pompous; I thought it was hilarious.  So I convinced our coach to change around the 12th day so we could practice our victories. It was awesome.
