12 Weeks

Plan Description

In this training plan, British Triathlon Level 3 coach in training Simon Olney will take you from non swimmer to completing your first 750M open water swim.

Are you an experienced cyclist and runner, stepping into the world of triathlon for the first time but completely lost with where to begin with your swim? This plan contains only swimming workouts, giving you exactly what you need help with, without bike/run workouts for beginners.

The plan includes pointers on swim technique, but includes very little in the way of drills, as without meeting you or seeing a video of your swimming I cannot prescribe appropriate drills or demonstrate their correct technique required to perform them. A one to one session with a reputable triathlon coach who could give you some drills to practice before the fitness sets would compliment this plan well. Alternatively if you send me a video of yourself swimming along with proof of purchase of this plan, I will provide you some basic feedback. I am based in SouthWest London if you happen to live in the area and would prefer a face to face session.

Make sure you take an easy week once every four weeks to allow your body to recover from the workouts, get a regular sports massage and see a physiotherapist if you encounter and consistent issues.
