Session planning is a vital part of any training plan. Every time you go out to train there should be a plan behind that particular session. It could simply be "Recovery Run" but there should be a reason why you're doing that and that is exactly what you should do. Without planning you're just going out and exercising and although this is likely to see an improvement over time, with progressive planning you should be exercising the right muscle groups and get better results.

Here are a few tips about session planning: They should be......

  1. Progressive, slowly getting harder over a period - not quite the same as periodisation.
  2. They should be leading you to achieving a specific goal at a some time in the future.
  3. Every session should exercise all muscle groups if possible.
  4. Most sessions in all sports should include a period of doing drills.
  5. Doing sprints and fast paced intervals are good in all sports.
  6. Never go too far from speed - even in a long slow session it's good to plan some short fast elements.

All of the sessions we list here will be ones we have delivered as coaches to our athletes and will be appropriate for the time of year.

  This Session
 

As we're in race season you need to be able to know the pace you're swimming, so you can raise it or lower it when necessary. Being able to swim different distances at the same speed allows you to judge the appropriate speed to go at.

In this session you complete kicking on the side, changing by length and every 8 kicks, then 3 different drills,

  1. touching a kick board held between your legs every stoke,
  2. single arm to Kick Board and Finger drag,
  3. practice easy speed by doing fist swimming to push and glide.

Then you do a 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m swim all at the same speed. Check the clock and see if you are swimming to the required speed and adjust if needed.

Single legged cycling helps you feel for dead spots in your peddling action. Areas where you push down hard and are stuck at the bottom of the pedal stroke hinder your cycling action but are found out when you only use one leg. Try to make your complete revolution smooth, even though you have to pull up with your leg at the bottom - something you don't do when you use 2 legs.

The main set is aimed at helping you run off the bike. Cycle for 6 minutes at your high end threshold pace and then immediately run about 150m with fast feet. Repeat it 3 times and try to maintain a high cadence on every cycle and run.

Run Group

Track sessions are probably the most important sessions to hone your speed. Long Slow Runs are the backbone of your overall fitness but track sessions are ultimately controllable, so you can test your speed or make sure you can hold a pace, on a repeatable and measurable course.

Different distance runs make for running at different speeds and have different training effects. We'll take you through all these effects over the weeks so you train throughout the year using all your energy systems.

This Session

This week you're doing 6k of running but at different speeds. Run 1k at your triathlon race pace and then take a 200m jog / walk. Follow that with a further 1k done at above your triathlon race pace.

The aim is to begin to improve your racing pace by practicing running faster, it's the only way to begin planning setting PB's.
