MIX UP YOUR ROU­TINE

Get out of your train­ing rut by in­tro­duc­ing a weekly swim into your rou­tine and #Make1k­wet

Runner's World (UK) - - RW/ PROMOTION -

Some weeks you open your train­ing diary and it feels like Ground­hog Day. Speedo is chang­ing that, call­ing on run­ners to swap the pave­ment for the pool and #Make1k­wet.

Sure, there’s com­fort in rou­tine, but no mat­ter how hard you train, if you only ever do the same thing you’ll find it more dif­fi­cult to get the re­sults you want. The progress you’re mak­ing starts to plateau, which is why you should shake things up by swap­ping your train­ers for your swim kit once ev­ery week. Just like your train­ers, Speedo fit swimwear of­fers the per­fect mix of per­for­mance and com­fort. Their four-way stretch­able fab­ric tech­nol­ogy of­fers max­i­mum flex­i­bil­ity, while their En­durance+ and chlo­rine-re­sis­tant fab­rics mean your kit will re­tain its shape, colour and qual­ity week in, week out.

Not only is swim­ming one of the best car­dio work­outs you can get, it also (deep breath): im­proves mus­cle tone, sheds fat, im­proves flex­i­bil­ity, low­ers your rest­ing heart rate, pro­tects your joints and re­duces stress. That’s not too shabby for one small change to your sched­ule, is it? How­ever, the best thing about swim­ming is that it’s ideal for any fit­ness level, and pub­lic pools are split into lanes to cater for ev­ery speed and level of abil­ity. So whether your goal is to im­prove your fit­ness, let your body re­cover with­out tak­ing a rest day, or sim­ply find a bit more quiet in the tu­mult of modern life – switch your kit out, head down to your lo­cal pool and #Make1k­wet.
