Triathlon Training: A Swim Workout for Everyone

Triathlon Training: A Swim Workout for Everyone

My goal is just to get back into the routine of swim, bike, run every day in some combination. Bec and I are just getting back into structured training this week after a three week break after Israman and illness (pneumonia and a bad cough). We aren't doing workouts where we are holding sub 1:15 for long course meters like my swim partners in LA, Alex and Holly (OMG they are SO fast!!!! GOALS!!).  Getting that fast again will take a couple months.  For now, here's what we did today and I think it's something anyone of any level can do.  Thanks to the coaches at Asphalt Green for leaving this on the board!  I adapted it slightly because someone removed the board while I was mid interval!.  Intervals in Short Course Yards, add 5-10sec per hundred for LCM, or change for your ability level.
