hi .
couple of questions . what is the general feeling on swim training. i have heard some say that swim training should be just that, swim training as it is necessary to get used to swimming for long periods and working on technique whilst swimming . or should there be a heavy influence on drills to iron out the technique. my first ironman is july next year. when should i go into base training . iam still competing and in a couple of weeks i have my final race of the season which is roughly olympic distance.
cheers for any advice

i'm training for a half iron right now - but figure it is probably going to be the same when I start Iron training...I do 3 days a week, 2 days a week are various drills (i.e. 5x100m w/ 15 sec rest; 10x50m kicks only etc) and then 1 day a week is a long swim (800-1200m continuous) - obviously distances will increase for an IM

there are several books out there with swim drills you could use

I signed up for Ironman Frankfurt, next year July - and I am very excited about it. I originally planned to run my first Marathon in the middle of September, but am not sure if this is wise.

Training our bodies to work efficiently in Zone 2 will help us keep our HR and pace even throughout an Ironman. This theory would hold true for the bike and run portion of an Ironman race.

This half Ironman plan covers many weeks of challenging, but attainable training for someone who has some endurance experience, and ideally some Olympic distance races within the past season.
