Well, I've been doing kicking, but NOT using a kick board. I try to depress my chest for flotation during the "flutter" kick (though I do extend my arms) and I also do the dolphin kick.
I also do some zoomer sets, but I've found that I need to do 400-600 yards sans fins to warm up, else my ankles get very sore.
Today was booooring swimming wise: after a 6 mile run I did (all kicking, no board)
4 x 50 free kick on the 1:30 4 x 50 dolphin kick on the 1:30 4 x 50 free kick on the 1:15 4 x 50 dolphin kick on the 1:15 2 x 100 IM kick on the 3:00
put on zoomers
200 "hand lead" balance drills
zzzzzzzzzzzzz (as in, this workout almost put me to sleep via boredom...but at least my shoulders felt good)
