Challenge yourself with this swimming endurance 3km training plan

Take on your next swimming challenge with this swimming endurance 3km training plan. Give your trips to the pool extra focus to help you push your stamina and performance in the swimming pool.

Each session of the swimming endurance 3km training plan forms part of a 30-step programme. The plan will ultimately take you to swimming 120 lengths in the final session, as well as developing your swimming skills and your endurance.

This training plan is perfect if you are training for a distance challenge event such as the Great Swim Series or Swimathon.

How To Follow The Swimming Endurance 3km Training Plan

With all of the sessions you will notice that there is a warm up, skill development, main set and swim down.

This will give your swim session a clear structure to follow. There are also helping hints and tips throughout to keep you swimming in the right direction.

Depending on swimming experience so far, you can choose to start at session 1 and work your way through, or a later session might be more appropriate for you. Either way, get in the pool, have a go and think about how the session felt.
