Triathlons usually begin with the swim section and for a lot of people swimming is the most difficult part of the event. Nearly everybody can cycle and run but for a lot of people 750 metres in a river or a lake is a step too far. Swimming coaching sessions are currently being held every Monday and Thursday night at the swimming pool in Fermoy at 8pm. Swimming is a highly technical pursuit and small changes to a swimmer’s technique can result in big changes in performance. Unfortunately many of us just end up swimming lots of lengths of the pool without paying enough attention to the small details that can make a huge difference. Swimmers of all levels are catered for giving the participants various drills designed to improve efficiency in the water. They also get plenty of laps in during the session ensuring that core fitness is maintained.
