Fastest lanes swim 5 rounds. Middle lanes 4 rounds. Beginner lane 3 rounds. Your sendoff is the same all the way through – i.e., you use the same sendoff for the 100s as you do for the 150s. To determine your sendoff, swim your first 150 at a moderate pace (approximately 60 to 70% effort). Add approximately 10 seconds to your time, and that will be your sendoff for the 150s AND for the 100s. Our fastest lane used a 2:00 sendoff. Next fastest lane used 2:25. Middle lanes used 2:20. Beginner lane used 2:30, and we calibrated so that they would have 15 seconds rest after the 150s.

The way this set plays out is that it’s like doing broken 250s. You do a 150, take a 10-second rest break, then do another 100. Then you get a longer rest before starting another “250.” In terms of energy expenditure, you should try to maintain a steady, even pace for the 150 — at about 70% effort. Then try to increase your effort level just a bit on the 100 — you’re more fatigued, so the 100 should feel like 80 to 85% effort. Your pace for the 100 should be just a little faster than your pace for the 150.
