Saturday Swim Session: Kick, Pull & Swim, What Duncan Laing Taught Me

Duncan Laing, arguably New Zealand’s most successful swim coach. I had the privilege of swimming under him in the mid 90’s, as part of his triathlon squad.

Build Your Efficiency By Adding Speedwork To Your Long Run

Fartlek Workout

The majority of my athletes do their long run in the weekend and this is the perfect time to do it as most people have more time available. But are you sick of doing the same long boring steady run?
