Saturday Swim Session – Swim Fitness Builder Week 1

Returning to the pool after a period of time off can be daunting, regardless of why you haven’t been swimming. Maybe you’ve been pregnant and have a young child, maybe you’ve been injured and haven’t been able to swim, or maybe your life has got in the way and you haven’t prioritised swimming for a wee while.

Saturday Swim Session: Steve Tarpinian’s Sprint Tri Main Set 2

Building your ability to sustain your threshold pace in a swim is an important capability for triathletes and open-water swimmers. These sessions further develop that ability by progressing the intensity as you work through the workout, but maintaining the Rest Interval (RI). The session gets tougher, as you work through it. This session will benefit triathletes of all distances, as well as other open-water swimmers.

Saturday Swim Session – Build Strength With Paddles and Pull Buoy

Building strength through increased resistance of tools such as hand paddles and/or pull buoys is essential for getting the most out of your swim stroke. However, it is important that it is not done to excess and it is done after a solid base-building phase of training to prepare you for the extra demands and training stimulus it gives you. This session is great for master’s swimmers as well as open-water swimmers and triathletes.

Swim Workout

Saturday Swim Session – Col Stewart’s Miles for Miles Session #2

To be an elite-level triathlete you need an exceptional aerobic base. Miles Stewart was well-known as an elite triathlete in the 1990s and into the 2000s. He had an exceptional aerobic base, built by consistent training and a large volume combined with speed. The focus of this session was developing his aerobic base. This session is good for triathletes, as well as open-water swimmers.
This week I’ll take you through what Miles Stewart did, in a fortnight’s time I’ve modified the workout for us mere mortals to be able to complete with the normal three options I publish.
