16 week swim plan perfect for athletes looking to be able to swim a half distance swim comfortably and/or quickly. Fantastic standalone swim program for those wanting to improve their swimming speed and endurance.
This plan is ideal for those athletes completing their first half distance or those wanting to improve their swim leg, from beginners all the way through to elite athletes.
Each session in this plan gives a range of set lengths. eg. 3-6 x 100m gives you the option of completing 3 x 100m if you need more work and 6 x 100 if you are a fit/fast swimmer. If you are a less developed swimmer you do the minimum option. Elite swimmers complete the longer option. The sessions are based on your own pace and developing your own speed and endurance.
Training peaks shows the maximum time and distance, please disregard this if you are a developing swimmer as there are easier options for you!
The plan includes key testing and how to use the results from the testing in your sessions going forward.
This plan includes 5 pool sessions a fortnight with one open water swim a fortnight. It includes a race day and taper.
Please look under the work outs for help with terminology and exercise descriptions.

This plan is intended for athletes who have a goal to swim 1.9km in a half distance race, or for those that want to develop their speed and endurance. It would be helpful if you have swum 1.5km in a swim session but not essential. This is not a learn to swim program although there is plenty of drill work to help you develop technique.
