Triathlon swim coaching

Sunday swims, at Cirencester Leisure Centre 5 till 6pm, stepped up a gear with coaching from triathlon coach Andy Gardner on 17 March.

As someone famous said: ‘if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got’, so as swimming is so much harder than running and cycling to improve, we are trying something new.

About 20 of us turned up for the first session. We started with drills, ably explained and demonstrated by our coach - don’t we all wish we had those long arms to pull us through the water?! With imaginative titles such as zipper and ripple we tried our best, though some struggled with the 2,3,4,5 breathing drills. A couple of lanes were reserved for those who wished to complete set distances and the rest of us were given a main set according to our abilities. A few shivered a little, but generally the experience was well received and we are eagerly anticipating further training this Sunday so roll up or return before spaces disappear. You may even find you improve!
