    So I got roped into a masters swimming event in August. That puts me in a training mode for basically sprint events rather than an endurance event. How affective is the 80/20 method when thinking of training for non-endurance type of activities.

    I’ll be upping my swim volume for awhile and can pick from the workout library, but would you change the 80/20 split to best prepare for something like this?

    Swimming even short distance requires endurance. The fitter you get the better you can push the efforts on the hard sessions and recover. the 80/20 method is effective for any sport that requires endurance and pacing. The only changes I would be making are specificity as you get closer to your event in swim specifics, so adding in mixed strokes, turn practice, diving practice. The 80/20 principle would still apply to get the most out of your training – the specificity of your hard sessions is what will change – to be focused on the efforts you will need for you masters swim events.
