Reply To: #USRPT does not have to be boring
You speak of the Goal Setting nature of competitive swimmers and I agree that is something the USRPT really caters to.
My challenge is with the swimmer who just can’t seem to hit their pace ( even though it is based on a realistic race time ) and then either starts to get discouraged ( the failure thing takes some a while to get used to ) or adapts the traditional mentality of ” I am just going to keep going and train my way though it”.
I was wondering if anyone else has found that boys, who have achieved their best times based on big end of the season shave/tapers, have a harder time repeating their assigned paces?
These have been my two biggest challenges to what, otherwise, has been a very successful training model
