1: Building a Triathlon Swim Program
You know how to train and coach on land, but the pool is another
universe. Coach Barbara Hummel describes how you can build a swimming
program that's a magnet for triathletes as well as potential triathletes.
Her New Hampshire team has nearly tripled in size since 2003 by
catering not just to triathletes but also to Masters swimmers, fitness
swimmers, and tri wannabes who need lots of hands-on instruction.
Barbara will talk about the drills, the sets, and the philosophy
that seem to make all these groups happy, and that has brought more
people into the sport of triathlon.
Barbara Hummel is a USAT Level 1 coach, head coach of a Masters
swim team, a marathoner and triathlete, and a Masters national champion
in swimming. She writes, edits, and produces videos for GoSwim.tv,
and has directed swimming clinics and week-long triathlon training
