# 6 x 100-yards on :05 rest, best effort ## Operations

Get the total time. Then subtract the rest. The rest is 5-seconds times 5-times. The rest time is 25-seconds. Then divide the swimming time by 6 and get the 100-pace, as per Kevin Kinel.

The 100-pace times is called Cruise 1 interval.

Add 5 seconds to the Cruise 1 interval to get the swimmer's Cruise 2 interval.

Add 10-seconds to the Cruise 1 interval to get the swimmer's Cruise 3 interval.

## Example Swimmer

1. Swimmer departs on the first 100 with the pace clock or stop watch at 0:00.
2. Swimmer does a time of 1:10 for the first 100. Clock at 1:10.
3. Swimmer rests for 5-seconds after the first 100. Then departs on second 100. Clock at 1:15.
4. Swimmer returns from second 100, doing a 1:15 swim. Clock at 2:30.
5. Swimmer rests for 5-seconds after the second 100. Then departs on third 100. Clock at 2:35.
6. Swimmer does the third 100 and swims a 1:16 time. Clock at 3:49.
7. Swimmer rests for 5-seconds after the third 100. Then departs on fourth 100. Clock at 3:54.
8. Swimmer does a time of 1:20 for the fourth 100. Ugh. Clock at 5:14.
9. Swimmer rests for 5-seconds after the fourth 100 and then departs for fifth 100. Clock at 5:19.
10. Swimmer does a time of 1:15 for the fifth 100. Clock at 6:34.
11. Swimmer rests for 5-seconds and departs on the sixth 100. Clock at 6:39.
12. Swimmer does a 1:10 on the sixth 100. Clock at 7:49.

### Resulting math of example swimmer

• Total time of the set with swims and rest is 7:49. Calculation: 7:49 = 915 seconds.
• Subtract the rest of 25 seconds gives a swim time of 7:24. Calculation 915 minus 25 = 890 seconds.
• Divide the swim time, 7:24 by the number of 100s. Calculation: 890 divide by 6 = 148.3
• Math to go to seconds is 7 minutes x 60 = 420 + 24 extra seconds = 444 total seconds.
• Divide total seconds of swimming, 444, by 6 repetitions (did 6 x 100s), = 74 seconds. Calculation 74 seconds = (74-60) = 1:14.

### Cruise Intervals

• Cruise Interval #1 = 1:14 + :05 = 1:19
• Cruise Interval #2 = 1:14 + :10 = 1:24
• Cruise Interval #3 = 1:14 + :15 = 1:29

#### Real World Results

##### On December 12, 2019, two swimmers at The Ellis School, did the set.Swimmer A
• Total time: 17.31
• Swim time: 17:06
• Total seconds swimming is 1,026
• Divided by 6 = 171 seconds = 2:51 average per 100
• Cruise interval 1 = 2:56
• Cruise interval 2 = 3:01
• Cruse interval 3 = 3:06
##### Swimmer E
• Total time: 13.51
• Swim time: 13.26
• Total seconds swimming is 806
• Divided by 6 = 134.3 seconds = 2:14.3 average per 100
• Cruise interval 1 = 2:19.3
• Cruise interval 2 = 2:24.3
• Cruse interval 3 = 2:29.3 Two swimmers, E of middle school, and A, a rookie HS swimmer in her first weeks on the team, did the set.
