I would be grateful if anyone could give me some advice on swimming training. I am due to comepte in the army championships for my unit in 3 weeks and am unsure how to prepare myself. I used to be a very good swimmer (county level as a boy) thus am ok on the technique front which serves me well when messing about in the pool. I don't have access to a coach and I am at a minor unit without an APTC presence. What I do have is a pair of speedos, some goggles and the ability to go the the pool for about an hour on 12 occasions before the next gala. I swim all strokes but haven't timed myself. I will be racing in 50 or 100m events. I realise that this is a very short period of time and I do not expect miracles - I would just like to be able to do my best for my team on the day. Thankyou for your replies.
