    Hi All,

    I have just bought an Ironman plan but I do all of my swimming in open water, meaning that even if I follow the zone drills, the sessions of “rest” are not quite so easy as they would be in a pool.

    Has anybody else had to adapt their plan to include only open water swimming, and if so what did you do?

    Thanks in advance,

    Snooky

    Hey Snooky,

    At various times, I too have done all of my swim training in open water. It’s not a bad way to go. The best way to adapt our swim workouts to open water is to replace timed rests with a “rest till ready” approach. When you feel ready for the next interval, you probably are ready, regardless of how little or how much time it takes on the clock.
