How to get Triathletes to do Kick Sets!!!

Kick sets...one word, theyhavetobethehardestthingeverandireallysuckatthem. Now don't get me wrong, I understand the importance and how they make you a better swimmer but holy cow, I am NOT good.

The past few weeks we have been introduced to kick set races. 25 yards ALL OUT!!! Now if there is anyway to get a triathlete to do kick sets, just turn it into a race. It doesn't matter how much they hurt, we will give it our all each and every time. Plus the pictures turn out freaking awesome.

Everyone getting ready for a tough kick set. What we didn't know what how hard it was actually going to be.
Race #1- 25 yards all out as fast as you can go. The effect with the kicking produced some pretty cool pictures, but honestly I had no idea since all my focus was try to make it to the other end alive.
Race #2- Once you make it to one end, you have to go back. I will admit that eventually you get into a groove and well, you legs pretty much go numb to the pain.
Your lungs on the other hand, DO NOT! This is I!!! Trying to bring myself back to life after a few tough kick set races.
I am happy to report that I did survive. Albeit BARELY ;)
