This 2-week program is designed for advanced swimmers who need some guidance tapering into a key triathlon or swimming event. This program can be used as the swimming portion of a multisport program or independently as a swim only program. This program will require approximately 4-6 hours per week and can easily be integrated with any other bike/run program from the B78 Endurance Hub library or elsewhere. There will be 5 swim workouts per week. Throughout this program you may find terms that you are not familiar with. If this is the case please refer to the ‘Swim Lingo’ and/or Appendix document available at the B78 Endurance Hub programs section. We wish you the best of luck with your training.
Athletes taking part in this program should be experienced swimmers with two or more years of swim training under their belts. This program is only useful if you are preparing for an event that requires you to be at your best. This training program is short because it is focused only on the two-week lead into a key event.
Programs to follow this one
After this program and your event, consider taking a break from swimming and then starting back up with the 3- week maintenance/off season program and then the 8- week general preparation program or one of the event specific programs.
