August 6, 2018 – Swim

AK Athletes, this week we begin our final 6 week training block of the training year. For those with races in September and October it is an opportunity to sharpen our speed and technique one final time before we ramp down for the off season. For those that are done racing for the season it is a great opportunity to continue training with and supporting fellow athletes as we close in on first complete year of training. Our swim workouts have been well attended and we continue to recruit new swimmers to our group openwater sessions. Come join us for the remaining few weeks while the water is still warm
