Reply To: Correlations to race speed vs. practice times
My suspicion on the breast intervals seemed to be supported by the results this past week. Even though my swimmer was unable to “train” at his desired race pace, he still dropped time. We had a 2:14 time (converted) in the 200 breast. We were training at under :35.5 in practice and only able to complete 6 or 7 before first miss.
Again, only one swimmer, and it was a lcm race when we train scy exclusively, so I’m not going to read too much into it. Just thought it was worth sharing.
Now, I am busy gearing up for the high school season. We will be going usrpt exclusively for the first time. Swimmers will be given rest on an individual/as needed basis, and I hope to have much more meaningful data to share. I just need to find a good, efficient way to track it analyze it.
