One of my all-time favorite sets… probably because of my love of auto racing. The ability to prepare for a quick change is important in this set.
Have a board ready, as this set requires it. Even if you only like kicking without a board, use one in this set because without the board just makes this set boring. The idea is to swim, then grab a board to kick, drop the board off to swim again. As the intervals decrease, this pre-planning skill becomes more important and quick changes, like pit stops, can either make or break your ability to make the sendoff.
Main Set (short course yards):
– 6 x 150 on 2:30 – 50 swim, 50 kick with board, 50 swim
– 6 x 150 on 2:15 – 50 swim, 50 kick with board, 50 swim
– 3 x 150 on 3:00 – 50 swim, 50 kick with board, 50 swim — All FAST!
It’s fun… really.
