Further work on our continuous swimming, using just short breaks to capture repetition data and refocus on holding great technique.

Warm Up:

2 x 100m, the first easy, the second, steady.

Technical set:

No technical set

Main set:

3 x 20 minutes continuous (1-minute rest in between) for athletes training up to 70.3 distance

3 x 30 minutes continuous (1-minute rest in between) for athletes training up to IM distance

Warm down:

No warm down

Total Volume:

2800m – 5000m

Coaching Points:

Aim for consistency across all three repetitions. In terms of level of effort, set out slightly easier than you might expect, preserve yourself for later parts of the swim.  In the third repetition, you may build as if coming to the end of your race swim. Build your swim by holding good body alignment and balance, coupled with a strong, symmetrical pull.
