Hi, I am 14 and I specialise in 50m freestyle sprints.?

Hi, I am 14 and I specialise in 50m freestyle sprints. My current time is around 27 low. I am swimming 5 times a week.I would like to push my time to 25 seconds high at the end of the year. I would like to know what drills I could do to reach this target, as i find that the long distance swimming practise, although it increases stamina, takes toll on my body and doesnt really improve my times. Much appreciated

Working on your speed in practice will drop your sprint time. Find a SPINTERS workout. Shorter distances with a higher intensity. 15's from the blocks at 100%, more rest. Sprint kick sets. QUALITY over quanity
