The Banana Set: Distance Day with Progressive 200s

Ryan Woodruff

This set was for our distance crew.  Above the green squiggly line, swimmers had the option to pull, and the instructions were the same for each swim — to negative split by 5.  Below the line, we look for each progressively larger set of 200s to also get faster.  We crushed it! The last set of 5 was great.  This set was very mentally tough but I was proud of our kids for persevering! After the set, they were so hungry they ate my banana that I brought for a post-practice snack, hence the name.
