Good Sets for a 33.3 yard pool
 
Hello one and all. I know most folks swim in 25m, 25 yard and 50m pools. So It would seem easier to base SPL's on those, but what about a 33.3 yard pool? My neighborhood pool, which is located right around the corner from my house is one such natatorium.

When I am very mindful, I usually hover around 20 SPL and over time reach 22 SPL toward the end of a workout. Is this a good number for a guy who is 6'1? Trying to find the range and then gear up for some solid repeats off of this. Advice is always welcome and appreciated.

The length of the pool where you are doing your practices is 1.33 times the length of a standard short course pool, so you should multiply your SPLs by about 3/4 to compute their equivalent in a 25m pool.

I say "about" because you are also going to be doing 3/4 as many streamlines, and will therefore be swimming (rather than streamlining) a higher percentage of the distance. A swimmer in a 25m pool who streamlines 5m, for example, is really swimming 80m when he does a 100m swim, but if he did the same distance in a 33.3m pool, he would be swimming 85m.

Hello Naji,

calculating with Stuart's rule of thumb (from which the TI-GreenZones are calculated), with a 5m push off from the wall, your length (1.85m) and a GZ from 55% to 70% of your length; your GZ for a 33.33Yrd-pool (30,47m) is 20-25SPL.

So you're stable in the lower half of your GZ. Well done!

Best regards,
Werner

Holy Smokes I'm a racing machine LOL! Not really but I would like to be. Thanks so much for the calculation this will help a lot when I'm in the water tomorrow.

Keep Swimming!
