So, back to the stopwatch today, working on the following set:
- 400m f/c warm-up
- 24 x 50m f/c, target 55s, turnaround 75s
- 200m swim down
I felt quite tired during the warm-up so I wasn’t sure how it would go, but my first rep was 48s, after which I settled into a fairly steady rhythm of 51s, dropping into the 52s later in the set. I did have a couple of 53s when I had poor turns and didn’t get a good push off the wall, but they were the worst two. Overall I was very pleased with it. I’m not sure I can manage another set tomorrow however. I might do a 100m pace set instead — perhaps 24 x 25m f/c, target 25s, turnaround 40s or something like that. I’ve got no idea where to start, so that doesn’t seem too bad a point to work from.
USRPT distance this year: 74,400m
