As a high school coach, most of my USRP sets are very similar, since most people are training for 100s.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the idea of every once in a while giving a high school group sets for 200 strokes, for example, giving a swimmer who really is only going to swim the 100 breast a set of 20×50 at 200 breast race pace?

My thinking is it will mix it up a little, and it will open some of their eyes to the idea of swimming those longer events.

My concern is that it will negatively impact their training for their 100s, but I don’t really think its a big deal.

An thoughts?
