now its just me spouting swim nonsense. The duathletes may have finally won Wink

Shall we start a box v base thread or "quality v quantity and what really is quality. or my reasons for making people swim 25's and 50's in training and certainly no more than 100's even for endurance. Might spark a 5 person debate

one of the sceptics on the marathon swimmers forum likened the stroke of the guy currently trying to cross the atlantic to that of a 'local triathlete swimmer' - ain't that a kick in the jammers Very Happy

it's pace and form rather than distance that's important for endurance swimming...

certainly is. I have the juniors do lots of 25's off 30's holding no more than 17 SPL , and 15 for some. By measuring SPL you know they are keeping the same form length after length even when you start to stress the stroke with a faster time / reduced rest. If the goal is academy, for the boys they'll need a sub 2:20 / 200. simple process means that for the "race pace " they need 17sec 25's so it about hitting 25's in sub 17 holding 15 strokes for the best.

Laughing The sad thing is most "local adult traffleeets" are totally unreceptive to advice and think they swim like Phelps and have great strokes because they paid some guy 80 to swim in an endless pool for an hour and be told they were "fantastic". No the reason you take 2mins to swim a 100m is not because you have a fantastic stroke.

2 small arrivals and a job where I actually have to work a bit for a living have conspired to keep my attention largely elsewhere - combined with the fact that I haven't been doing much sport over the last couple of years.

I do keep a weather eye, but it seems my usual stomping ground (OT) is dryer than a nun's naughtiness these days.

well, I've been around these parts for longer than any posters on this thread so far.

<---------------------------------------------------------------------------

but for most of that time I was an active poster on Rimmers World although in recent times have got bored with the tri forum on there and have become more active on here as there is more tri interest for me than the Pirates can now offer.

sure Tripetalk has changed over the years and much like RW is less active these days, but it's still one of the best resources of tri info out there and I hope it carries on


yes, you beat me by 6 mths.


More like 18 months

It certainly has become pretty quiet. I still check in most days. Most folks spend their time on Facebook these days I guess.

I think YAG even pre-dates me a little? Wasn't he a mountain biker or something?
