I will be away this week so have left the sessions in the box.  The main set for the session is focused on building your speed endurance by asking you to swim fast sets of 3, 4 or 5 x 100s, off a short turnaround time, with a Brucey Bonus rest in between each set.  But is this main set really a set of 100s or is it a set of “broken 300s, 400s or 500s”, i.e. sets of 300s, 400s or 500s with a short rest after each 100?

Both are essentially the same set, and have the same training effect, the only major difference I think is how you think about the set mentally.  If you find it more beneficial to think of it as broken longer swims or just sets of 100s I really don’t mind.  What I would really like you to do, though, is note your total time for each set of 100s.  I think you might surprise yourself if you compare this time to your 300, 400 or 500 PB and is why this set is good at building your speed endurance.

See you next week!
