No worries Troy Archer glad you found it helpful

I did it...I survived week one.  It’s not saying much considering I covered 95 miles in the week when I’m looking at 140 in a day but...week one is in the green with a lot of firsts: first legit training, first swim workout, first double session, first hill repeat set, first 95 mile week! And a return to not getting locked into my bike...😬

Happy Monday - try some firsts! Do you have any?

From Marathons to IronMan – Watch Me Tri Week 1

The magnitude of IronMan should have been obvious from the onset - especially the ticket shock on my face as I clicked the finalize registration button for IronMan Texas and almost 4 figures zipped away from my bank account in a click. But, no...obvious did not slap me in the face. As a marathoner, pair of sneakers, pavement, get going. So I thoug

What Swimmers/Triathletes want.

If you attend a Tri specific pool fitness session as a swimmer or coach some of this might resonate. I am afraid I do not have all the answers to some of these dilemmas as some athletes are just uncoachable and will hop from one coach to the next expecting miracles. Hopefully if it gets you as a coach or athlete thinking then it might just h

A short clip as we migrate swimtips from the stairwell to swimtips from the shed now I have moved and have some more space. My posh shed is where the magic happens, swim sessions, ideas, new kit. How do you make swimmers faster is all I have asked of myself regardless of the swimmer. Different swimmers need different help.SWIMTIPS FROM THE SHEDWha
