It’s a bumper issue this month because we’ve included a free 32 page Swim Supplement. It’s no surprise that the swim leg puts off most wannabe triathletes or seriously scuppers the PB attempts of more experienced competitors.
Poor stroke or lack of ability means that fewer triathletes reach their potential, but it doesn’t have to be the case. That’s why this issue is packed with swim drills to improve your technique and to make you go faster (SSp6). Plus how to choose the best wetsuit and goggles for you (SSp18) and which are the best pool aids to use in your weekly sessions (p42).
However, it’s not all about swimming, we take a look at how strength and conditioning can be used as part of your schedule, making the most of your time and leaving your muscles fresh enough for the rest of your training (p30). And we caught up with the inspirational Vicky Holland who’s come back from injury to put herself on the podium time and time again and is our top medal hopeful for Rio.
Now there’s nothing left to do except fill up your race diary with events and keep your training on track.
Let us know how you’re doing and don’t forget our star letter each issue wins a Lazer helmet worth £199.
