Pool Training

Speaker:  Ray Gibbs

One of the questions I get asked all the time is how much training should I do during the week, or how should I approach training before the season starts (for those with goals a littel further ahead)

How should you approach your winter training?  

Whilst there is no 'one size fits all' approach, this will give you some ideas on the approach that may be appropriate for you.

What should you aim to do during the week as we build up the time in the sea at the weekend?

Ray has trained many channel swimmers (including me) and many triathletes.  He has also studied the techniques of some of today's top swimmers.
