It’s starting to look a bit festive on poolside… Last night with the Swim Smooth Manchester squad we had a choice of sessions: 1) 🤶🏻A festive 12 days of Christmas – we did 2 sets inspired by the 12 days of Christmas (one to make up for the session we missed last year) 2) ⏱ A CSS re-test. We had 3 swimmers put themselves forward and they all swam quicker than their previous attempt in October! Harry knocked off 2 seconds off his 400 and 200 times, Nick knocked off 5% from his CSS and Fiona returning to fitness after some time off, knocked off 10%! Well done guys – it’s great to see the hard work paying off . Thank you to everyone for their hard work and energy – see you on Thursday for more festive fun! 🎄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wintertraining #triathlon #openwaterswimming #swimming #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #instaswim #workhard #measurablegains #trainsmarter #thinkdifferently #swimsmoothmanchester #manchester #swimsmooth #instatri #manchester #manchesteruk #swimtraining #triathlontraining #swimbikerun #trilife
Tonight’s @swimsmooth Manchester Squad worked on: ⏱ Pace awareness 🧠 Mental toughness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Key skills needed for endurance swims.

Here we see the squad part way through their main set which features a 400 and 600 at CSS pace. Last night’s set worked on mental fitness as well as physical fitness. That mental toughness and skills are essential in endurance swims. Training is a good way to learn these in a controlled environment and find out what works best for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wintertraining #triathlon #openwaterswimming #swimming #fitness #fitfam #fitspo #instaswim #workhard #measurablegains #trainsmarter #thinkdifferently #swimsmoothmanchester #manchester #swimsmooth #instatri #manchesteruk #swimtraining #triathlontraining #swimbikerun #trilife
