Yrs, failure is not swimming the rep at the desired time.
As the distances decrease, the need for more precise timing of your reps increases. For example, there is a potentially big training difference on a rep at 12.1 vs 12.9. One might be success, the other a failure in 25s for 50 training. Ideally, you would have someone timing you or at least be able to discern 12 low vs 12 high if you don’t have a timer. Guess it depends on if you have a coach with a watch or if you are training alone.
Again, good luck. Let us know how your training goes and your results at the upcoming meet.
