Pace line set
noun - Pace line sets are a key element of the Pyramid of Open Water Success. 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.
