Pretty basic set today: 10 rounds of 150 fast + 150 easy on (4) per 300. This set should be swum fast — with an average at goal 1650 pace.
I put a whiteboard up, with 1650 paces on it — and I highlighted certain times that would place high at our Spring Championship meet in Florida (based off past results). The 1650 paces were what I consider to be “exact” — the paces were right on, minus one second for the turns (we were finishing to the hand). I wrote down some 500 paces for the athletes I had who are motivated more by 500 goal paces….and with these paces I made up some “averages” that were goal averages…based off what I thought was appropriate.
