Distance Training, Day 28

This workout features an 800 at threshold pace. This is the typical distance of the swim in a sprint triathlon. The set also includes a country club like IM where you will swim 25 Fly/25 Free/25 Fly/25 Free/ 25 Fly/25 Free, then move onto backstroke for the same.

Distance Training, Day 27

Today we will be swimming some shorter distances, starting at threshold pace and dropping the threshold overload. Set an interval for yourself that gives you 30s rest from your threshold overload pace. Drills emphasize a high catch and long pull.

Distance Training, Day 26

If you like 500s, you will love this workout. There are 4 x 500, four different ways. Plus in this workout, the sprinting is done first so the 500s will be extra challenging.

Distance Training, Day 25

The main set today is a set of 200s with decreasing rest. Pay attention to your head position. Tuck your chin and elongate your neck. Look toward your armpit when you breathe.
