It's never too late for a swim workout. Thanks to Steelhead Coaching for this week's Workout Wednesday!!
As we near race season, it’s important to be practicing more race specific skills, such as sighting. We should also think about the race itself. The start is crowded, we tend to go harder to get started and hopefully out in a good position. After this we settle in to a good rhythm for the remainder of the swim. I like to kick a little harder the last 50 yards of a swim to wake up the legs prior to the transition into T2. With these specifics in mind here is a good swim workout to incorporate.
Warm Up (WU) – Always do a WU prior to the main set. Relax going into it, breath and get the body moving before you tackle the hard work.
200 Warm Down (WD) – Mixed stroke and break up the 200 any way you want.
