Hi Ryan,

A question re your 5th para where you discuss ideal swim pace/rest interval. What do you mean by “I don’t think multiple failures are beneficial”. Do you mean that the swimmer should “complete the set” i.e. if you went 12 75s at 50:20 (=1:10), you should do all 12 reps off a 1:10 turn around? Or do you mean to stop after 1 failure? If so what if that is rep #3?

Given that this is about an approixmate Vo2Max rather than pace, isn’t it always better to complete the set and get the work in?
