Get In Yo Face Race Pace

Ryan Woodruff

After an extended warmup, we performed the following set to work on maintaining our race pace under fatigue.  We are quite skilled at repeating race-pace swimming for repeat 50s.  Throwing in the 100 fast swim (where we asked swimmers to approach P200) more closely mimicked actual race-like fatigue.  We saw some excellent results, particularly on the third round.
