My Swim Sucks

Just finished my first season racing Sprint triathlon. I feel I have a pretty strong bike and run, having done a lot of these sports in the past, but my swim has been really letting me down (15+ minutes for 750m) so is the main thing I want to improve over winter. What is the best way to do this? Volume? High intensity? I really have no idea.

Many thanks

Hi Charlie,


I have the same problem.

I've been told by a friend that swimming is the most technical out of the three disciplines.

Best would be to be part of a swimming club. Or a triathlon club with swimming coaches.

I'm mainly training on my own. And just bought 'Swimming Speed Workouts'. No idea if it will help or not, but I will give it a go

(Super)Sprint (a lot) - Olympic (1) - 70.3 (1)
