Pace

We’re doing a sprint workout today that we wanted to explain.

Example:  12×25 free sprint at 100 pace, RI :20

You would first need to figure out how long it takes you to swim a 100 free.  If it takes you 1:30, then you would swim a 25 in approximately :22.  You would then try to sprint your 25s in :22 and rest (RI) for :20 between each 25.

If this is too much to think about, just sprint them without worrying about your pace.

BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED WORKOUT:

400 easy free (warm-up)

12×25 free sprint at 100 pace, RI :20
