What will my swimming week look like?
Our English Channel program includes four to five pool sessions of 1.5-2 hours long, averaging a distance of 5-8km per session. There is also one longer-distance open water swim on Saturdays.
The average weekly swim distance is 25-60km depending on the week of the program
Anything in addition to swimming?
Dry land session: a 30 -60 minute workout conducted by the individual swimmer is recommended. This can have a positive impact on swimmers’ muscles and could improve speed and endurance. Simple sessions with a stretch cord, body weight or a gym workout once or twice a week would be beneficial.
Recovery: stretching, yoga, pilates and massage will help muscle endurance and recovery.
Logbook: recording the details of each of your sessions during the preparation period keeps swimmers on track and helps them monitor progress.
