I am very excited to start my triathlon season 2015! How did the first training in the pool feel? Tough! Uncoordinated & clumsy! The most important is to get that "feel of the water" and I can proudly say that by the end of my training I was able to manage that. Yaaay! If you're a triathlon newbie and you find this workout interesting, please feel free to use it.
100 yards warm up
6 x 50 yards focused on technique - length, direction, high elbow (you can read more here: http://www.joefrielsblog.com/)
3 x 10 seconds vertical kicks
2 x 50 yards focused on head position and breathing
2 x 50 yards freestyle with fins - speed (my favorite)
3 x 200 yards freestyle easy
4 x 50 yards freestyle with paddles and buoy (focus on high elbow and propulsion)
50 yards freestyle cool down
Swimming is a great full-body workout that improves your posture, cardio and core strength. That' s why I prepared for you a swim cardio workout. Have fun!
