It refers to simulating open water race conditions in the pool or acclimating the swimmer to such conditions during open water training sessions. Pace-line sets are where groups of swimmers closely draft off of one another in the pool, changing pace and leaders throughout the set (e.g., 3 x 1000 with a change of leader every 100). It is one element of the concept of interleaving in the training of open water swimmers and triathletes.
