Category: Open Water Swimming Preparation
Workout Goal: Sprint starts and endurance swimming
Total Distance: 2400 yards
Notes:This workout is designed to help you practice sprinting, while still working on endurance. You will also practice breathing techniques and surface sighting on 1 of the swim drills.
On the 8 x 50 yard and the 4 x 100 yard sprints you should challenge yourself with an appropriate time depending on your speed and skill level. The 1 minute per 50 mark is a starting point, but you should make it longer or shorter if you find it is too challenging, or not challenging enough. The same is true for the 100s.
Please consult your doctor before beginning any type of training program.
