Favourite set at the moment 30x100m s/r 1:50 as 10 full, 10 pull, 10 pull with paddles target all sub 1:35. Hope to go sub 1hr at IMVichy in 2016. Will look to reduce s/r to 1:45.
and there lies the problem with most of the stuff on 220 - everybody forgets what its like to be a "beginner" struggling to even make it to the pool and being out of breathe after half a dozen lengths. Time for some real "beginner" advice before you start talking about sub 1 hour IM swims!!
I've just entered the London Tri in August at Olympic distance just to give me something to work towards.. I've had a retul bike fit which has transformed my riding and I think with the help of my swim coach I'll succeed in meeting the 1200m swim required.
