Okay, so I previously posted that I have Sprint Triathlon planned for July 2013. I've taken my swim lessons and am now working on building lung capacity and improving my swim mechanics following 40+ years of simply treading water and calling it swimming. Anyway.
So I found a sprint tri training plan that I like and intend to use. It's a 12-week program that is pretty intense. The prerequisites are: Swim 50 yards freestyle without stopping (check), run 1/2 mile (check), and bike 20 minutes without stopping (check). I thought I was golden but not so much.
First week, first swim training day is a 2 x 50 (warmup), 4 x 25 x 4 drills, followed by drills that total 1,050 yards. So we're talking 1,550 yards on day 1? How did we get from 50 yards to 1,550? Is it a typo?
