With the fortune of having Scott at my disposal, I signed up for a 5k swim in Ireland. That’s just over 3 miles, so a greater distance than last year. But most importantly, I wanted to swim faster, swim stronger, and raise plenty of money for the UK’s leading brain injury charity, Headway UK. Scott’s plan worked perfectly in the lead-up to race day. The swim training he’d devised had me peak at a good time – I was swimming the full 5k distance in practice 10 days before the race itself and feeling good. I felt the training was so beneficial that I’ve signed up to do another 5k later this year, and I know sticking to a lot of Scott’s advice will stand me in good stead for that
