Descending Race Pace Set

Ryan Woodruff
Head Coach
Lynchburg YMCA

The purpose of the following pace set was a bit different than many of the others I have posted here.  Many of our pace sets are tough to complete successfully, and this sometime causes a negative “I failed” attitude.  As we get into championship season, it becomes increasing important for the swimmers to feel successful so they can be confident and mentally sharp headed into the meet. 

This set was tough because I asked them to be at faster than race pace, but the relatively low number of 50s and rising interval allowed them to be very successful.
