Swim Session

Saturday Swim Session – Col Stewart’s Miles for Miles Session #4

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.

Saturday Swim Session: Gale Bernhardt’s Endurance 12 Workout

Endurance is a critical component of fitness for triathletes and long distance open water swimmers. The reps within this session build your pace to develop the skill and mindset to finish an open water swim or swim leg of a triathlon fast. This is a great session for triathletes and open water swimmers to do to build their sustained speed.

Saturday Swim Session: Building Speed and Threshold Pace

The ability to swim at and maintain your threshold pace is a critical component of fitness for triathletes and long distance open water swimmers. When large numbers of short reps with short rests are strung together your threshold swimming pace is developed, as is the case with this workout. This is a great session for triathletes and open water swimmers to do to build their sustained speed.

Saturday Swim Session: Alternate T-Times

This session is a great tool to determine your current level of fitness and use as a benchmark for planning of future training sessions. This is an alternate method for determining it, really great if you have limited time for this workout. I use the main version every four to six weeks with my athletes and this version for athletes starting out, or recommencing training after a good break.
