Swim Sessions Defined
The emphasis here is on drill and technique work with plenty of recovery and tips on how to refine your individual stroke. You can expect feedback during this session on how to properly perform the drills and also receive tips on your stroke.
If you want to improve your speed and pacing skills in distances greater than 400m, then this is the place for you. These sessions will simultaneously improve your technique and swim fitness by using Critical Swim Speed (CSS) training. We will do specific fitness testing to determine your personal CSS pace and re-test regularly to monitor your progress. With improved technique and swim fitness, you will find you can maintain good form for longer periods of time which results in swimming faster and more efficiently on race day. Tempo trainers are used during these sessions but are not required.
These sessions are a great way to keep your technique tuned up while you focus on improving your endurance and are a great compliment to a weekly CSS development workout. They are a happy medium between the Pure Technique and the longer, harder “Red Mist” endurance sessions. You can expect some drill work, longer aerobic intervals, and feedback on your stroke during these sessions. Tempo trainers are used but are not required.
The infamous Swim Smooth “Red Mist” session is the hardest and longest session of the week. Distance covered usually ranges between 4,000-5,000m. This 75-90 minute swim is the cornerstone of the Ironman and 70.3 crew given how good it is at preparing you for these distances. Can you hold off the “Red Mist” from descending on you when you’re not feeling your best? You can expect feedback during these sessions on how well you are sticking to your target pace and you will have an excited coach urging you on as you inevitably fatigue!

You are required to bring your bike, computrainers are provided. Winter term runs January 6, 2021 – April 28, 2021.
