Tuesday Training Plan: 4 weeks to a Faster 1500m with only two 2km per week (25m/50m Pool)

As you follow the programme you will find yourself swimming your 1,500m faster. Now whether that is a PB or not will depend on how fast you have swum in the past, but it will definitely be faster at the end of the 4 weeks than it is now. With this programme people improve on average nearly 2 minutes, with some people improving by over 10%.

This is a steady endurance building session. This session has been designed for swimmers and triathletes returning to the pool who are wanting to further develop their endurance.

Thursday Training Plan: 4 Weeks to a FASTER 1,500m

The 4 Weeks to a FASTER 1,500m swim plan is one of my most popular swim plans. It has been designed for the triathlete targeting an Olympic distance triathlon but has very limited time to train. The original version involves two swims per week, and these swims are limited to 2km a session. If you have limited training time available, this is the training plan for you.
