“Revving up the engine before releasing the clutch..!”
This particular topic has been sitting in the back of my mind for a while but I guess now is the right time to write something about it. ÖtillÖ Hvar swimrun is less than a month away so now it’s more important than ever to work your way towards the startline.

What to train? Base Phase vs Build-up
In Part one I talked about the importance of key training motivators, how to set-up a preliminary race plan and the meaning of a holistic training philosophy. In part two I will try to explain the difference between the base phase and build-up phase. As mentioned I plan to do three A races this year with Jasmina (i.e. Hvar, Utö and ÖtillÖ). We are now in the base period which will run until mid Feb. Then follow three specific build-up phases (which will be different in duration) but all with the objective to get in race shape and peak on race day.
“Do it yourself…”
It’s 2017 and the start of a new and exciting swimrun season is about to unfold! Please…can somebody turn on the lights, I am getting a bit fed up training in the dark. Anyway, below you will find some of my thoughts on how to prepare for the upcoming swimrun races. First of all, without proper training you will not get very far so let’s start with that. Mmmmh …there are so many different ways to train where to start and who to believe.
