My coach is a fan of it. Last year I can say that I was absolutely consistent with my swim training...consistent in that I never actually did any.
This year I thought I'd apply consistency to a more productive approach. And that is to actually swim.
This has proven a little more fruitful than my previous approach.
I feel like I've been super lucky too. My Coach recently changed gyms and now swims at the same place I do. A number of other members of my tri club have changed over too. So now I can get some great workouts in with a really fun group of people and get top notch coaching and advice on my stroke and swimming technique.
I have been swimming three times a week and last weekend I went to a great swim clinic that Coach Scott held for members of our tri club. I feel like I am finally being consistent. I'm not sure how that will translate to actual racing. Only time will tell. But I figure even if it doesn't make me faster at least it will give me more confidence.
Now if I could only apply this concept to riding my bike on the trainer.
