Aim for consistency across all three repetitions. In terms of level of effort, set out slightly easier than you might expect, preserve yourself for later parts of the swim. In the third repetition, you may build as if coming to the end of your race swim. Build your swim by holding good body alignment and balance, coupled with a strong, symmetrical pull.
