The Peluso Open Water Program will get you prepared for your open water race. The program includes coached group open water swims every week and three open water races The program runs from April 6 to October 6, 2013. All workouts will take place at 4800 Welby Turn, Midlothian, VA 23113 which is home to the American Legion Post 354 near James River High School.
Open Water Workouts:
These alternate each week. The first will be on Wed, April 10th, the following week will be on Friday, April 19th and so on.
Alternating Friday Workouts: 6-7pm
Early in the season we start with swims of 30-35 minutes of open water endurance swimming sets. During the season, we will progress to longer swims for those swimming in longer events up to 4-5000meters. This workout will serve as your long swim of the week.
Alternating Wednesday Workouts: 6-7pm
During these workouts we will set a course, marked by smaller buoys. These workouts are a combination of open water skills, intervals and endurance training. NOTE: Wed workouts that fall on the first Wed of the month will be 6-7am due to American Legion monthly meetings.
You do not have to swim the entire workout and are welcome to cut your swim short if your ability or time constraints require you to do so.
