Reply To: Season end data
I’ve been tracking this for over 20+ years and truthfully, it’s not that hard. The tracking is really easy as long as you stay up with it and don’t get behind. I track about 14 standard sets and 42 swimmers. The majority of the correlations are .884 or higher, with most above .934. Kinda mind boggling that it’s that simple.
Here’s some data on our 50 freestyle kids. This is “n x 25 fr on 2:00”. They are done from a push and correlated to actual race performance. I get coaches all the time saying “well what about the start or what factor do you use for turns?” None! the data shows don’t really need to. Trying to keep it simple and yet correlate training to race performance.
I do have a couple of younger college coaches that send me data and they are tracking very close on their training to race speeds also.
? I child proofed my house and they still get in 🙂
