So every now and then we do a few distance sets for the age-groupers!  Here is one we did today that really got to a few of them!

5 x 100 warmup, fast interval

2 x 800 IM

20 x 25 Fly from a dive

2 x 400 IM

5 x 100 Backstroke

2 x 200 IM

8 x 50 Breaststroke

2 x 100 IM

5 x 100 Freestyle fast interval

Put them IM’s on a fairly decent interval and push the single stroke sets even more.  Should be a good one for them.  Also, if you want to make it even more difficult, throw in active rest. This is where when the swimmers touch the wall, they can’t hang on, they need to tread water. They will love that one.  haha!  What type of cool sets do you have?  What are your favorites sets?  Let us know in the comments!  See you next time!
