Swim Couch to 5k

This is a three month programme for front crawl swimming that can be done anywhere: lake, lido, indoor pool or sea, and in a wetsuit or skins. The programme suits:

  • People with a basic level of front crawl, that they wish to brush off and extend.
  • Pool swimmers starting their first season outdoors.
  • Returning open water swimmers, who have deconditioned after a long lockdown.
  • People wanting to work on their front crawl, through guided drills.
  • Anyone who wants to extend their swimming stamina – whether blocked at 1 mile, 30-40 minutes, or the Ironman 3.8k.
