MAIN SET FOR SWIMMERS GOING TO MEET: 1000 + 200 + 400
Swim straight through this set. No breaks. On the non-FAST intervals, do a drill or recovery swim or anything that will get your ready to do the FAST interval. To calculate your initial sendoff, determine the time you’d like to hit on your FAST 50s. Let’s say it’s 30 seconds for 50 free. Your initial sendoff for the 8 X 50s should be 20 seconds slower than your target time (50 seconds if your target is 30).

8 X 50 on approx. :20 RI…every 4th is FAST
6 X 50 add another :05 to your sendoff…every 3rd is FAST
4 X 50 add another :05 to your sendoff…every other is FAST
2 X 50 add another :05 to your sendoff…both are FAST

200 EZ recovery (choice)

16 X 25 on :15 to :20 RI…every 4th is FAST. IM order is OK — or switch strokes ever 4.

MAIN SET FOR THOSE NOT GOING TO MEET: 1500
You can use a Tempo Trainer if you wish for this set. If you use it, you might want to increase your cadence on each round.

5 X 100 on approx. :30 RI

4 X 100 take :10 off your original sendoff
100 EZ with fins
3 X 100 take another :10 off your original sendoff
