After the fast starting 200s last week I’d like to focus on finishing strongly this week.  Finishing strongly, or even putting in a burst to get into a better position mid-race, is a great skill to develop that is shown by many of the stronger swimmers.

To help practise this we will be returning to the Jess Learmonth set from last year.  It is a set of 100s and 50s mixing swim and kick swum mainly at your 1500m race pace but with some fast 50s to finish.  The kick work is a good way of bringing on the fatigue for the end of the set ready for the fast 50s.  And doing some work on the legs is a good thing for providing a change of pace as your stroke rate will increase alongside a faster kick.

See you Saturday!
