A Swim Workout for Between Seasons
FOR MOST ATHLETES at this time of year, the race season is all wrapped up and in the rear-view mirror, yet it’s a little too soon to begin the high-volume work that the winter will bring. While it’s important to take an end-of-season break and physically and mentally hit reset before resuming structured training, when it comes to swimming, it’s advisable not to spend too long out of the water.
The all-important “feel” for the water can easily be lost and take time to regain. The solution? Use this time to focus on technique and work on weaknesses in stroke mechanics that might have been overlooked during the race season. Here’s a session that will help you do just that, while also keeping your engine ticking over and setting you up for an easier transition to the heavy-duty work that is just around the corner.
