To Swim Fast at the Meet, Swim Fast at Practice; How to Train Consistently at "Race Pace"

Ryan Woodruff

I have written before on this blog about using Pace Cards at practice to help swimmers accurately and consistently train at "race pace."  Today I am sharing the Pace Cards that we use for training.  Simply type in your best times and goal times in each event and the Pace Card will show you how fast to swim for different training distances in order to be swimming at actual "race pace." Try it out, and if you have any questions, let me know how I can help.

We use these cards frequently at practice.  Click on the "race pace" label at right to see workouts that put this powerful knowledge to use.
