|Using Tempo Trainers in the SS Squads in Perth|
To stop the beep driving you crazy we make one other small change, which is to use a beep every 50m/yds rather than every 25m.
Red Mist Cycles
As an example set, here's our 'Step Up The Pace' session Red Mist gets progressively harder:
6x 100 on RM6
5x 200 on RM5
4x 300 on RM4
2x 400 on RM3
1x 800 on RM2
|Guru says: Beware the Red Mist,|
creeps up on you it does.
In practise this is very easy, as you go through the above set all you need to do pop the beeper out from under your swim cap and reduce the setting by 1 second at each change of RM cycle.
Red Mist sessions are a similar concept to a long fast paced run or 2 hour bike ride that gets progressively harder. These sessions are mentally challenging but particularly beneficial for your swim fitness because you might rarely swim continuously over longer distances which is a real gap in your preparation.
