Swimming Set of the Week – March 25, 2011

This week’s set lets swimmers have a little fun with March Madness.

Before you start, divide the swimmers into two teams of roughly equal ability and speed.  Then have fun working through the brackets.  Plan wisely who will swim fast…and when…on the final 4 swims in each segment.  Remember:  It’s a team effort.  Fins are optional at any time.  Winning teams can choose to kick, drill, pull, or swim.  

16 X 100 choice on 2:00 sendoff; final 4 are FRIM (IM except that you substitute freestyle for butterfly).  
Whichever team can produce the 5 fastest times on the final 4 X 100 FRIM gets to choose what everyone will swim on the 8 X 75 that are coming next….

8 X 75 on 1:30 sendoff.
Whichever team can produce the 5 fastest times on the final 4 X 75 gets to choose what everyone will swim in the next round….

4 X 50 on 1:00 sendoff.
Whichever team can produce the 5 fastest times on the final 2 X 50 gets to choose what everyone will swim in the FINALS.

2 X 25 ALL-OUT RACING.  Use the blocks.  Use any sendoff you want.
