TYR Swim Set of the Week

Every Thursday I’ll post a new set that I’ve either recently done, plan to do, or just love. I’ll focus on main sets that are applicable to triathlon and can be done in any type of pool. Need something specific? Leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do!

A few details

  • I swim in both 25 yard and 50 meter pools. If I’ve recently done the set I’m posting, I’ll try to specify what I did, but really, anything will work!
  • The sets I’m posting are meant to be started after a warm-up and maybe even a short pre-set. I’d also encourage a post-set cool down to make sure you’re ready for your next workout!
  • I’ll be posting the sets with intervals based on rest, which will work for swimmers of any ability.
  • Set look too long? Doubtful! You can do it!! You’re a better swimmer than you think! (And there’s only one way to get better…:)
  • Sometimes I use swim specific phrases like “Negative Split” and “Descend.” I realize these aren’t common in normal English and I’ll try to define any specific terms within the workout. But if I miss anything, feel free to comment or email me and I will happily provide a translation.
  • None of these workouts are truly my own creations. I’ve had the honor of learning from some of the best swim coaches in the world, so I’ll try to provide some context for each set and proper attributions to their brilliant creators!
