COACH’S TIPS SWIM PREP
STICK TO THE PLAN
Too many triathletes repeat the same swim sessions because they get to the pool and forget what they should be doing. Print the plan out, laminate it and take it with you.
JOIN A CLUB
Having a coach on poolside and fellow athletes to work with will see you improve at a far greater rate. Listen to the feedback and apply to your solo sessions.
DO THE DRILLS
Don’t overlook the drill sessions in an attempt to get fitter and faster. Swimming with great technique will provide you with speed and also more efficiency.
Prepare your kit in advance before your swimming sets. Far too many swim sessions are wasted by forgetting goggles, a towel, pull buoy, etc.
