Thank you for selecting this 10km (100 x 100m) Swim training plan, proudly presented by LB Endurance.
The plan is intended to prepare swimmers to finish a a 100 x 100m swim event. "100 x 100s" is often completed with others around the start of a New Year, for a variety of reasons, perhaps to benefit a charity and/or simply to instill a sense of confidence and accomplishment.
You may have already completed some open water triathlons or swim events up to and including 10km distance. The plan will prepare the athlete for a 10,000-meter swim event held in any venue (most likely a pool). The goal is to finish the event with a smile and complete training without injury.
This plan can be executed as METERS or YARDS (or a mix of both, depending on your pool options). You should have regular access to a pool, and some workouts can be completed outside in open water.
To start this plan, be capable of swimming at least three times per week. You should also be able to swim 3000 meters (or approximately 60-75 minutes, with breaks) comfortably in a single session and at least 7000 meters per week.
** If your place is slower than 2:30 per 100 yards, we suggest working one-one with a qualified swim coach to help you improve technique. LB Endurance (www.lbendurance.com) offers swim lessons and remote video swim stroke analysis. **
Each training week includes three swim or four workouts, one or two strength training sessions and one or two cross-training sessions (e.g. bike or run). You will also find one or two planned recovery days each week. Strength training and rest are important to maintain the body, mind and soul while preparing for an endurance event.
Swim workouts are given as time and/or distance targets.
Strength workouts use primarily bodyweight exercises and can often be performed with typical gym machines or free weights, but you can substitute similar exercises that you are familiar with, including power yoga, pilates or similar bodyweight-powered strength work.
The plan also includes several tips and reminders to help you prepare for an enjoyable event, including guidance on race fueling, gear, race planning, and hydration.
Please have a doctor’s approval before starting this, or any exercise program.
