I’m surprised they find it so easy @ 15 sec rest. I would really be interested in what your results have been like. Rushall said there was a study that showed a correlation between yards and the performance of female distance swimmers. With an extremely small sample size (3) we had success training primarily 50s @500 pace. 17 seconds rest and 15 seconds rest. But that was with around 45 50s completed most days.

Would you be willing to post some race splits?
