Our set of the week is partly IM but mostly freestyle.
Barbara's masters team has been focusing on negative-splitting their 100s and 200s for the past month. Here's what they did today, with a modified version for the "beginner" lanes.
Our Set of the Week incorporates our Drill of the Week. Think it looks too easy? Make sure you do it with NO FINS.
Getting in some early week work with crowded lanes.
Descending 5 x 50's gives you the goal time... next you'll have to hold that a bit longer than one.
This week's set starts out very easy, and ends up being very hard.
The intervals get faster as the reps get higher. A good way to challenge your swimmers.
Here's a long set that is as difficult, or as easy as you want to make it. With an increasing interval, it's important to continue to push the performance envelope further and further.
Following the theme of controlled descends this week, Barbara's team applied the concept to some 200s.
Learning pace is more than guessing, it's about feeling how the water moves passed your body at specific speeds. Here's a practice that inspires to teach those feelings.
This week's set is inspired by our Flip-Turn Drill of the Week, and by Glenn's flip-turn set. This was the week's killer set for the masters team coached by Barbara. Careful what you eat before practice....
We're posting a few days early this week, with a special Black Friday workout, in case you want to plan ahead.
If you just look at the distance and intervals of this practice, there's nothing to it.
IM set this week. Why do these always look so harmless on paper?
This set grows on you pretty quickly, and keeping the full set from the group makes it even tougher on them. (Insert evil coach smirk here)
