Swimming at the optimal speed
For distance swimmers one physiological factor is key: your lactate threshold. If you improve your lactate threshold pace, you will swim the same distance with less time. When training, your ability to sprint or work anaerobically above threshold is quite irrelevant when it comes to swimming long distances.
In order to improve your lactate threshold you should swim sets at your current threshold pace or just below it. Do not make the mistake of training above lactate threshold in short sharp swim sets - that isn't nearly as effective.

Swimmer's shoulder injury
Many times we hear that someone suffers the swimmer's shoulder but we do not know exactly what it is or how it is produced, much less how it can be avoided.
This injury, also known as the subacromial syndrome, is the narrowing of the space between the head of the humerus and the acromion (a bony relief that belongs to the scapula) and, as a consequence, compresses the structures that pass through it such as the rotators’ cuff, the tendon of the biceps and the subacromial deltoid bursa.
In swimming there is a high risk of suffering from it, since the subacromial space narrows when the arm is raised above the head in a repetitive manner, as in the stroke of the crawl or freestyle. Other causes can also be scapular hypermobility, poor technique or poor training in which muscle recovery or muscle balance is not taken into account, especially if paddles or other materials are used to increase water resistance.
The pain is characterized by pain from the outside and from the front of the shoulder, in movements of abduction and external rotation of the shoulder, as it rests on the affected side and, even, nocturnal pain may come to wake up.
In the case of noticing such symptoms is important to go to the doctor and the physiotherapist to start treatment. It also helps to apply a cold patch, from 5 to 10 minutes, due to its anesthetic and anti-inflammatory effect.
After recovery, resuming training sessions must be progressive. In order to prevent the injury it should be taken into account the muscle balance, the dosage of training loads and perform well the stretching technique.

Tips for SwimAddicts
In Tips for SwimAddicts we will tell you what most of the times is not explained duraing training sessions, but belong to the unwritten rules of the swimming world.
#1 Be Brave When Training
If you want to put yourself out there during the training sessions, be brave, and reach your max for the most part of the session: do not wait until the end! Help the colleagues who swim in front of you who will surely appreciate if you interlock from time to time. It is not necessary to move past them in the last round of series, after they have done ALL the work. Tell them before you start the series and agree on how you will do them. Touching the feet of the swimmers in front of you is great for you, but if you want to achieve results leave 5" (at least) with respect to the swimmer in front ... If you train with a group and you feel identified with what we explain, we propose a challenge for you: Offer yourself to be the first in doing one round of series. Be brave!!
DO YOU NEED A GROUP TO TRAIN? Check us out.
