Our swimming set this week is a pace pyramid.
Here's a set that will challenge your breaststrokers to learn their stroke.
We don't typically have much opportunity to swim long swims at the lunchtime practice. Many people show, and it's a short course practice, so long swims would create too much chaos.
This week's set will help masters swimmers determine their Aerobic Threshold (AT) pace in preparation for the One Hour Swim in January.
Here's a short set to help swimmers learn what it feels like to swim at a specific pace.
Not a long set this week, and there's lots of rest, but the yardage is quality 200-pace work.
Our set of the week has several goals: train for SCM in SCY...hone your sense of pace...practice "back-half" swimming.
Learning to use front end speed to allow for active rest, can teach a new way to swim interval sets. Experimentation is the key.
Pace set this week, with the pace getting faster as the set progresses.
How's your sense of pace at 100s and 200s? This week's set asks swimmers to do some descend work and negative-split work...and sometimes both.
Teaching swimmers how to work isn't just for kids... masters need a little help too.
Really packed lanes mean's you just can't swim that far... so you'll need to demand performance at a more consistent level.
Start the set with a pace you feel confident you can hold for a long time. Be careful not to be too aggressive at the beginning, it just may creep up on you.
