12 months ago I decide to do an Ironman, the problem was, I couldn’t swim and didn’t own a bike. How hard can it really be? Initially, I decide to train myself, I jumped on the internet and downloaded a plan…easy as!
About two weeks in to “coaching” myself I realised there was more to it than just swimming, biking and running a few times randomly throughout a week. It was time to consult a professional.
I contacted Ray who had been recommended to me by a friend, this is when things really started to take shape.
Swimming short reps with a good rest can develop your speed and swimming them with short rests can develop your endurance. Put lots together within the one workout with a mixture of rest and you can develop speed, endurance and speed endurance. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.
Running at race pace provides a training stimulus that allows your body to get accustomed to that intensity. Marek does that in this session with a variety of paces to provide your body with a range of training stimuli. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to and over the full Marathon in distance.
This is a great workout for developing your leg power and maximum force production. This is perfect for road cyclists as well as triathletes and mountain bikers.
With 6 weeks to go and still not showing any signs of consistency, wondering what’s in store come race day is pretty scary!
