Swim 365

Are you a regular fitness swimmer?
Do you struggle to find inspiration for a swim workout?
Due to a request to put together a year long training programme for a group of swimmers, I’m now launching Swim 365 to everyone else.
It might be you take the lead for a group of friends who swim together. Maybe you plan the training for a local masters group. Maybe you swim by yourself and need some inspiration for some workouts each week.
Each session will develop all round swimming fitness by improving aerobic efficiency, Distance Per Stroke (DPS), swim speed, lactate tolerance and/or threshold pace.
