Mike’s Middle Distance Magic: Its all about the base!

Ive been having some good talks with Ray this week over training, over the past few months Ray has been putting sessions in for me to build up to a half marathon in a couple of weeks.

Saturday Swim Session: 600’s for Success

Including moderate length reps into your training programme can enhance your swimming over longer distances such as Ironman or longer open water swims. This workout is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer ocean swims.

Friday Fartlek Run: Kylie’s 1 Minute On, 1 Minute Off

The ability to run at your top end intensities will enhance your performance. This session will develop your VO2 Max intensity, challenging your anaerobic, as well as your aerobic energy systems. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.

Thursday Training Plan: 4 Weeks to a FASTER 1,500m

The 4 Weeks to a FASTER 1,500m swim plan is one of my most popular swim plans. It has been designed for the triathlete targeting an Olympic distance triathlon but has very limited time to train. The original version involves two swims per week, and these swims are limited to 2km a session. If you have limited training time available, this is the training plan for you.

Saturday Swim Session: Long Reps Will Develop Your Endurance & Stamina

Few swimmers swim reps as long as 1,000m, but this session will develop your endurance both physical and mental stamina. This workout is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer ocean swims.

Friday Fartlek Run: Jenn’s 400 & 800’s

The ability to run at your top end intensities will enhance your performance. This session will develop your VO2 Max intensity, challenging your anaerobic, as well as your aerobic energy systems. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.
