Coaching Tools: Race Pace in workouts
Coaching Tools Admin - Assistant Coach
Entering a race pace into a set allows you to help your swimmers practice at a certain pace so they know what it feels like. Suppose you have a swimmer who can swim a 200 freestyle in 1:55.00. This means an average 50 time of 28.75 (the Pace Calculator in OnDeck can help here).
You decide you will have your swimmer swim at a 200 pace plus two seconds, or 30.75. Here is what that would look like in a swim:
So when adding a swim you would pick 200 from the RP dropdown and enter 2 to add two seconds. Click the + button to switch it to a - if you want to subtract seconds instead.
