May 3, 2016 – T2 Aquatics – 75s for Mid Distance and Sprinters

We had an awesome practice working on 75s at race pace. The two sets are done with the 4×50 between as detailed below.

The set has two parts, and both parts are equally important. The second set should be the fastest! We have done quite a few 75s, but not enough focused 25s for our sprint athletes. This set finishes on 25s, so it’s a bit different from our normal active rest set where we start with 25s, then get to 50s on the way to finish with 75s (which I think should be the way to go 60-80 percent of the time).

Additional Comments:
We still need more 25s under our belt. I’m going to motivate my training group to do a better job on 25s that we do during “Pre-Sets”, “Post-Sets”, and warmups. We can use those 25s to build better 50s and 75s. I think great 75s are essential to swim strong LCM 100s and 50s, and strong SCY 200s and 100s (and 50s).
