I found it rather ironic that when I got home from work yesterday there was an email sitting in my inbox from USAT about swim drills for triathletes. Why was it ironic? Because I’d just got home from the gym from doing swim drills myself.
I have to admit, I’m not a fan of swim drills. To me, they’re just boring. However, I do get the point of them, so I suck it up and do them. Right now, since I can’t run or bike, my coach has now added swim drills once a week back in to my workouts.
It’s been a while since I’ve done some swim drills, so I had to rack my brain ALL DAY long to remember which ones I needed to do in the pool. I could have taken the easy way out & just texted Coach to ask him, but I didn’t want to.
Here are some of the swim drills I did last night. I did 200 yds of each.
I think some of the swim drills that USAT mentioned are great drills as well. Next time I have to do drills I’ll definitely add some of those in.
Do you include swim drills in to your workouts?
