Triathlon Plus - - Welcome - Debbi Marco, Ed­i­tor

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.
