Most age group triathletes aren’t fortunate enough to have swum from a young age. In-fact a lot of triathletes haven’t swum at all until they decide to start triathlon. It seems to be the number 1 question I get from people when they first start triathlon… how can I get better at swimming?
A personal blog entry by Coach Rich days prior to his attempt at the 2017 Ultraman Australia.
For those who aren’t familiar, Ultraman is a 3 day stage race comprising of swim bike and run. It started in Hawaii over 30 years ago and this year will be the 3rd annual running of Australia’s edition held at Noosa Heads, Queensland. The distances are fairly heavy. The stages are comprised of as follows:
Day 1 – 10km swim + 140km Bike
Day 2 – 280km Bike
Day 3 – 84.3km Run

In the world of endurance training and racing, we as athletes rely on many relationships to support, guide and assist us on our path. We have supporter type relationships with our partners, friends, family and kids who pump up our tyres when they need inflating. We have relationships with our work colleagues who, even though they ask how the weekend was, are not really interested in hearing the ins and outs of the 5 hours ride (cue the glazing of eyes look). Some of us have curious relationships with our gadgets and technology and spend hours pondering the session and the number that have been crunched. Perhaps the most critical relationship we have, however, is with our coach!
