Triathlon Magazine Canada - - SWIM BIKE RUN TRANSITION - BY KERRY HALE

When ex­e­cuted with a clear pur­pose and di­rec­tion, short swim work­outs can be highly ef­fec­tive for the time-crunched triath­lete.

Carly Priebe, who holds a PHD in ki­ne­si­ol­ogy and is a Triathlon Canada coach de­vel­oper, knows this all too well. Priebe has worked with a va­ri­ety of ath­letes from elites at the in­ter­na­tional level as the head coach of Canada’s na­tional Para­triathlon team, to be­gin­ner and in­ter­me­di­ate ath­letes through her triathlon-coach­ing busi­ness, Tran­si­tion Sport and Fit­ness.

Priebe un­der­stands the time con­straints of many mul­tisport en­thu­si­asts.

“Short swim work­outs can be highly ef­fec­tive if ath­letes fo­cus on pur­pose­ful drills and sets,” she says. “Qual­ity over quan­tity can ac­tu­ally be the best recipe for suc­cess in the pool.”
