Reply To: Won't do that again
You’re pretty much dead on and we do that for all 3 sets within workout. The reduced numbers comes with the expectation of high numbers made e.g., 80% or greater, and most will accomplish that. I think this gives them a high degree of confidence going into the meet.
Not in a very long time 20+ years. When I was more into the TT mode it was always a crap shoot as to if they were going to swim fast (had no clue) and I was always in the 46-52% ranges. Great for the kids that swam fast, but very disappointing for the others that worked just as hard and didn’t reap any benefit. Kinda hard to tell a kid that has 80+ percent attendance that they need to work harder. I had to look at what I was doing and make a change.
Hope that makes sense
