We’ve shared a lot of fun, high-energy videos in the last several weeks documenting the winter training trips of different college programs that have headed for lairs of solitude for some high-impact training and team-building.
Brown University, however, has shared a different kind of video from their trip to South Florida. Above, see as the Ivy League squad, and specifically their distance crew Cory Mayfield, Grant Casey, and Kevin Mertz take out 30×300’s, in long course, on the 4:20.
30 x 300 LCM @ 4:20
1. 50 Kick/100 Swim
2. 50 Fr/50 Fly/50 Fr/50 Fly/100 Fr
3. ALL OUT!
While the set was tough, the improvements showed in the team’s tri-meet against Harvard and Penn this weekend. While Brown as a whole went 0-2, Mayfield was 8 seconds faster in the 1000 than he was at the same meet last season.
Editor’s note: Casey is a freshman, and Mertz didn’t swim the 1000 at the team’s out-of-winter-training meet last season.
