100 x 100 @ 100, A Sandycove Swimming Rite Of Passage

100 x 100 @ 100, A Sandycove Swimming Rite Of Passage

While some of the distance freestyle community does its year-end one hundred one hundreds, the Sandycove Island distance swimmers under the guidance of Ned Denison enjoy a slight twist of the aquatic pleasure and pain of 100 x 100s.

Denison pushes the Cork community to join its morning century swim – or variances thereof.

Our standard set is 100 repeats of 100 meters on 100 seconds short course. A few swimmers do a longer or faster set and more do a slower set.” And as the former collegiate water polo goalie suggests, “Put 5 swimmers in the same lane and let the fun begin. Anyone who quits early fills all the water bottles and takes friendly abuse until the next scheduled set.”

The next set is December 16th – 125 100 95 (i.e., 125 repeats of 100 meters every 95 seconds).
