Triathlete Europe contributor Sara McLarty has a blog with more than 500 creative workouts used in her Masters swim program in Clermont, Flor. We’ll feature a workout every Monday so you have new ideas to take to the pool. On her blog (NTCMastersSwim.blogspot.com), you can pick a Monday set for a long distance focus, a Wednesday set for sprint training, or Friday for creative open water skills.
