Block #2 (weeks 13-24 + 2 taper weeks) of this 24 week program takes you from swimming 300m non-stop to 2000m non stop - with the longest session being a total of 3.3km! Utilising freestyle swim drills to promote balance, control, stability and streamline, this 12 week block progresses the athlete slowly but effectively to increase total distance in achievable intervals up to 2000m, and includes weekly progressions in open water swimming. With clear drill descriptions and helpful tips, this program has been trialed and proven to assist many athletes in achieving their goal.
You will need a pool facility near you, a swimsuit suitable for swim training, cap and goggles. A pull buoy, kick board and finger paddles are recommended. A wetsuit and neoprene scull cap may also be required for the weekly open water sessions. And you'll also need patience!
