Mark's Mission - Part 6

Mark Warkentin is working out hard (see below) in his build-up to the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim, but NBC did film Mark with a Tai chi master who demonstrated the Chinese martial art on Mark for a special piece that will be broadcast nationally at NBC.

Mark did a pulling set where he did a 1000 in 10:49, took a 10-second rest, did a 2000 in 21:15, took a 20-second rest, then did a 3000 in 31:14 where his last 1500 was a 15:32 - or a 1:02 pace per 100 at the end of a 6K set.

thanks for the info about Mark's workout. I've been wondering what kind of workouts, on what kind of pace, the open water swimmers are doing.
