This week we will be doing a variant of the Will Clarke 50s main set to give us chance to do some more fast-paced swimming before we do the January time trial next week.  All the 50s in the main set will be off the same turnaround time rather than a gradually increasing turnaround time that we have done before, which will make it too easy if you don’t make all the fast 50s really fast.  In fact, I would like you to aim to swim all the fast 50s at your 200m race pace.  Your 200m race pace should be around 3-4 secs faster than your 400m race pace so as a rough guide:

  • Lane 1 swimmers who swim 5:30 for 400m should be doing the fast 50s around 36-37 secs per 50.
  • Lane 2 swimmers who swim 6:20 for 400m should be doing the fast 50s around 43-44 secs per 50.
  • Lane 3 swimmers who swim 7:00 for 400m should be doing the fast 50s around 48-49 secs per 50.
  • Lane 4 swimmers who swim 7:50 for 400m should be doing the fast 50s around 55-56 secs per 50.

See you Saturday,

Rob
