This is the sixth session as we build your fitness to a new 1,500m PB. Start with the first session and then work through doing each session three to four days apart.
- Session One: How fast can you swim 1,500m?
- Session Two: Drills to help you swim qwiker
- Session Three: 200’s to enhance your threshold speed
- Session Four: Swim 300m reps to develop your stamina
- Session Five: Enhance your technique with this drill sequence
This session will build on the threshold work you did in Session Three with a shorter interval, however because it is shorter you can do them at a higher pace.
Session Six: Threshold
- 400m Warm Up;
- 15x 100m 20sec RI;
- 100m Cool Down;
Start the workout with a Warm Up covering 400m. During the warm up feel free to stop and stretch as needed. It doesn’t need to be a continuous swim.
The main set is fifteen reps of 100m with 20 seconds Rest Interval (RI). Swim each rep as quick as you can.
Complete your workout with a 100m Cool Down. Feel free to pause and stretch when needed and/or include stretching as part of each break until the distance is covered.
Record your times for your 100’s and post them in the comments section below.
