Now that we’re using personal best (PB) times as a basis for how hard to swim sets, it’s helpful to have actual recorded times to work from. Where you don’t have a PB for a particular distance (e.g. a 200) it’s possible to get a rough idea from one you’ve recorded at another distance (e.g. an 800) using this table.
To make it easier to know how hard to swim endurance sets, for the immediate future we’ll be referring to target repeat times as “PB+NN sec”. So a swimmer with a PB of 1:10 should swim a set of 100m swims referred to as “PB+10” at around 1:20 pace whatever anyone else in the lane is doing. Trying to swim much faster (assuming you’ve got your PB more or less correct) will in the long run reduce endurance performance.
Andy Evans reports - On a bright sunny Remembrance Sunday morning, there were 538 finishers at the second round of the Kent Fitness League's inter-club competition.
A minute's silence was observed before the start of the course which covered three laps of a very soggy/muddy Swanley Park.
At least seven 7Oaks Tri Club members (and a few other local triathletes) helped to keep Sevenoaks AC at the top of the league table!
