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.
