Run session and land based strength and conditioning set for swimmers
Nice and simple one for you today.
Find a loop of 1000m.
Most folk will know one starting right outside their door. It doesn’t need to be exactly this distance anything from 700m upwards will do. Do an extra loop if at the lower distance!
5 minute warm up and stretch
5 x 1000m – 1 to 2 minutes recovery after each loop dependent upon fitness levels.
You are running at 5k race pace with the last 150m picking up speed just like a race with a competitor for the finish line.
Check your time after each loop and try and improve each loop time by at least 5 seconds.
This set is all about pace judgement and speed!
5 minute warm down and stretch.
