Raymond BoardmanAll plans by this Coach
“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”
When you improve your swimming you will have accomplished something very special.
Designed for Beginner triathletes who are looking to improve their swimming fitness, the primary goal of this training plan is to ENHANCE YOUR swimming.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full IRON-distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes and swimmers.
Starting when ever you want to, this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week contains two swims. You will build up to 1,700 metres swimming in a single session, having started off with a total of 500m with in the session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a Garmin with swim functions such as the Forerunner 735/935 or Fenix 5.
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to swim 100m continuously and 500m in a single session.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.
Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRON-distance Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.
