This is a great session for triathletes and open water swimmers to do to build their top end speed.

Saturday Swim Session: Swim Smooth’s Dense Mist Session

With COVID lockdowns limiting time allowances in the pool, some coaches have come up with inventive ways to maximise training stimuli. Although I usually fully support a good structured Warm Up (WU), inclusion of some drill work to develop technique. Occasionally just going hell for leather and swimming hard all session within a restricted duration, leaves you to maximise you fitness with minimal time available.

Saturday Swim Session: Broken 150’s

I’ve been working on a new Fitness Swim Training Plan to improve your swimming over 8 weeks. The sessions for this programme are between 1,500m and 2,100m long and there are three sessions each week. I’ve got variations of the training plan for people who can complete four or five swims each week, as well as for people who can only fit two swims per week. As well as a 12, 16 and 20 week variation of the programme. This session is a key session in the programme.
