In 13 weeks, it will be racing time again with the first 2017 ÖtillÖ qualifier in Hvar, Croatia. Our sponsored athlete and coach, Nicolas Remires, has designed a 12 weeks training program to be as ready as possible for an event with this similar racing distances.
Do not miss the start of the program. 12 weeks is a short amount of time but it is a crucial period if you want to be totally set before a big 40-50km swimrun race. The first part of the program is a four weeks strength period where you will focus on building a strong and solid body. If you are already a beginner or an experience swimrunner, you shouldn’t neglect this period that will help you to add some more speed and intensity in the next two blocks.
If you have any specific questions about the training program, you can contact Nicolas at firstname.lastname@example.org .
