Triathlon and swim coaching Lanzarote

 

Introduction

The perfect triathlon SWIM SMART, RIDE STRONGE AND RUN TOUGH, but how many triathletes adopt this practise.

Because the Swim is the shortest part of the three events in an Ironman or triathlon, many athletes are tempted to overlook or do the minimum in their swim preparation This may work for strong swimmers or athletes with problems of limited time to swim, but when the correct training pattern is maintained swim training will no longer be over looked as there are many benifits for endurance athletes. Not just the obvious becoming a better swimmer but also nonimpact aerobic exercise

Inhanced recovery as swimming promotes circulation it can be used as an active recovery

Calming and stress reducing

Improved race efficiency especially for slower swimmers whos strong points are bike and run, less water time allows their race to begin

Improved nutrition as water time particularly for slower swimmers halts the replenishment of valuable energy stores this is critical and can mean the difference between completing your Ironman or long distance event.
