Algebraic Relay Descenders

Coach Josh Sinclair

Decided to have some fun with relays the other morning as we have 2 big relay meets coming up in the next fortnight.  It was great to get some quality changeover practice, as well as get some quality work done.

Tuesday morning is 45min dryland session followed by a 1 hour swim session.  Boys worked off their p1500 times as cycle times (A,B,C) next time I will probably make the cycle times a little more challenging (maybe use p200).

I had 20 swimmers attend so ran 4 teams of 5 at a cycle time of..

2xA+2xB+1C = cycle time

1.30+1.40+55 = 4.05

Rounded down to 4min time cycles.  Was surprised how challenging it was for the boys to descend as a team as they all needed to step up each round collectively in order for a faster overall team time.
