Swimming Set of the Week – April 17, 2009

This set of 100s offers a "take it to failure" challenge as well as a mental challenge to keep track of the sendoffs.  As you progress, be ready to deal with those two voices in your head… the one telling you to swim fast enough to make the next sendoff, and the one telling you to slow down so you don’t make the next sendoff.

??? X 100 free on the following sendoff pattern (read instructions below before starting!):

Etc.

Swim this as a continuous set of 100s, i.e., no breaks between the groupings of 3 X 100. Dive into the set at an initial sendoff that gives you approximately 30 seconds rest. Keep going until you can no longer make the sendoff. Ideally, you want to complete 15 to 18 X 100 before you reach failure. Fins are recommended because they will give you a wider range of speed and this allows you to prolong the set:)

At whatever point you start the set, your first grouping of 3 X 100 will actually be 4 X 100.
