I apologize to the original posters for highjacking this topic but…

Oldschool, could you give more details on the tests? What kind of rest are they getting? Are the 50s at 100 or 200 pace? I have zero swimmers who could swim 6×50 at 100 pace with 20 seconds rest. Perhaps that is just a problem with my coaching/training though. 100s at 500 pace seems realistic to me but are you doing the 100s at 200 pace? 5 of them?

When calculating predictions from the test sets do you combine the results of all the tests or just use the most recent one?

You talked about recovery days for distance swimmers. Do you ever do recovery days for other swimmers or is it typically not needed for those who are only doing 25s and 50s?

I’m reading Periodization Training for Sports right now (I think it’s the easier to understand version of the Bompa book you recommended). Supertraining came in the mail yesterday but I haven’t started it yet.
