Add another 2 seconds to their first 200 split and that should be their second 200 split. Ex: an athletes best 200 is 26.3, 1 st 200 split should be around 28.3, 2 nd 200 split should be around 30.3, that would give you a

12 Continue I usually work on 2 plus 2 first with my athletes with the goal of having even splits as the athletes get stronger and more mature: Ex - Take the split and come back the 2 nd 200 in 28.3 = 56.6.
