What’s happening with the HOGS this week?

What’s happening with the HOGS this week?

Training has been going really well this week. We are still building up to our maximum yardage but this week had some tough sets. Specifically, we swam two different test sets to establish our early season threshold paces. These sets are to be swum as fast as a swimmer can possibly hold for the entire set. We then average the results and divide the time, by the number of 100s, to arrive at a hundred pace. The first test was to establish a distance freestyle pace. We swam 5 x 400 free on intervals from 5:00 to 5:30. If a swimmer averaged 4:20, their threshold pace was then 1:05. The second test was to find a middle distance stroke pace. That set was 6 x 200 stroke on intervals ranging from 2:20 (freestyle) to 3:10. A swimmer holding 2:20 would have a stroke pace of 1:10.
