In­door Sight­ing Work­out

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - SWIM -

Since most Cana­di­ans have to do the bulk of their swim­ming in a pool, it can help to prac­tice sight­ing while in­side. The fol­low­ing work­out re­quires two swim­mers who can trade off through­out the work­out.

One per­son will be re­quired to stand at the end of the pool deck with a pile of five or more dif­fer­ent coloured kick­boards. These are to be held up for 10 sec­onds or less, one at a time, ev­ery sec­ond length while the other per­son swims an in­ter­val of 500 m or more. In ad­di­tion to hit­ting the de­sired pace time (and this should be ag­gres­sive), the swim­mer is re­spon­si­ble for look­ing up and keep­ing track of the colour of the boards in the cor­rect or­der. This game can be played with large cut out num­bers as well.

Af­ter swim­ming the in­ter­val and tal­ly­ing the sight­ing score, switch off roles. The goal of this work­out is to have a short time to fo­cus vi­sion while work­ing hard.
