Day 003 - Focus on technique

Rest day        Training via ActiveMail

IT'S A REST DAY: During all your training sessions, focus on good technique. OD and EN sessions are particularly good workouts to practice good technique because the intensity is low. If you know your technique needs some work, get a coach or teacher to work with you. It will pay big dividends in the long run, especially in swimming. Because the intensities of your workouts throughout this training program are based on percent of maximum heart rate, you would do well to invest in a heart rate monitor. If you haven't worked out with one, you should. A HRM (as they are called) will track your heart-rate and transmit it wirelessly to a watch-like device you wear on your wrist. Whether you're biking, running or even swimming, the HRM will provide constant feedback to help you stay within the recommended heart zone.
