Masters swimming workouts

Swimming workouts for masters swimmers, in a waterproof book

Masters swimming training 

Training in the pool as a masters swimmer can be difficult. It's most common for masters swimmers to swim in a public swimming session without a coach, but of course the immediate problem is, what swimming workout should you follow?

Masters swimmers know the importance of following a swimming workout; every session is maximised. You don't want to get to the side of the pool, then think "What am I actually going to do?"

If you've ever been in that position, you'll understand how you inevitably don't get the most out of your workout.

The best plan is to bring a workout to the pool which you can follow without having to think about it. Hold on a second though - you don't want to take a piece of paper which inevitably get's soggy and ruined in your kitbag!
