My first attempt at my usual set with a reduced target time:
400m front crawl warm-up
25 x 50m front crawl, target time 54s, rest interval 21s
200m front crawl swim down
Today turned out to be something of a mess. A couple of times I was delayed by other swimmers and then about five reps from the end two new swimmers got into the pool and decided they were going to swim up and down the lane line I was using (no lane ropes or anything today). Quite why they decided to do that when there were only five people in the pool and plenty of room elsewhere (and when I was clearly the fastest swimmer in the water at the time) I really have no idea.
Anyhow, I managed all the reps in under 54 seconds, but I don’t feel I can claim it as a great success because my rest intervals were fairly messed up. I’ll do it properly again next time.
