Garmin Swim Workouts

Swim workouts on Garmin devices work very similarly to other scheduled workouts but there are some distinct user experience differences because of the expectation you will not be looking at your watch in the middle of sets.

Getting Started

To do a custom workout first you have to create it in Garmin Connect. Log in to your Garmin Connect account, in the menu select workouts. Select “Pool Swim” and then click the “Create A Workout” button. Your new pool workout comes pre-loaded with a warm up, repeated interval, rest, and a cool down to get you started. (more…)

For 2017 I’m transitioning from building distance to working on speed! I have been looking forward to the 2017 training season pretty much since Vineman Ironman was over. I’m itching to get back to hard core training and really pushing myself this year because the time has come to focus and work on SPEED!!

The day before the event was set up for anyone who arrived early enough; they set up tents, a barricadeĀ for the fighting arena, and much more. We ended up having 9 women in attendance which is a LOT of women fighters. We were able have two teams with substitutes and get some solid fighting in. (more…)
