    369 Age Group Story: Pip Paxman

    369 Age Group Story: Pip Paxman

    Pip Paxman took up triathlon as a way to get her sporting fix after leaving university and missing netball and hockey. Despite feeling like an imposter, she quickly found that she had natural talent at swim, bike and run, and qualified to represent GB in her first olympic distance triathlon. Despite the challenges of the pandemic meaning her events were put back 18 months, she completed her first 70.3 at Portugal at the end of 2021 and qualified for the 70.3 World Championships in Utah.

    368 Paul Newsome from Swimsmooth - Stroke Improvement Special

    368 Paul Newsome from Swimsmooth - Stroke Improvement Special

    Paul Newsome from SwimSmooth.com joins us this week for a special edition aimed at helping you improve your swim stroke. Paul is one of the World’s most experienced swim coaches and stroke analysts, having been coaching swimming professionally for over 20 years. The swim smooth method has been adopted by British Triathlon and the ITU for their triathlon coaching courses, and their ‘swim types’ system is great at helping you quickly identify what kind of swimmer you are, and how to rapidly improve.

    In this episode we cover:

    The background that led to the formation of SwimSmooth

    The Swim Types system, consisting of the following six swim types:

    Arnie

    Bambino

    Kicktastic

    Overglider

    Swinger

    Smooth

    Stroke Rate - how to measure where you’re at, how to find the correct range for your swim type and body size, and how to test what stroke rate will work best for your body and swim stroke.

    The Finis Tempo Trainer Pro , and why it’s such a useful tool.

    Paul’s thoughts from having coached Joe Skipper. We also cover the lessons that we can all apply to our own swimming from him having watched Joe’s improvements, and how they’ve translated into his open water racing.

    366 Age Group Story: Gareth Whittle

    366 Age Group Story: Gareth Whittle

    Age Group Special: Gareth Whittle.

    Age Grouper Gareth Whittle has a story that will inspire and motivate you to overcome any challenge that life throws at you. An adventure holiday in Alaska went horribly wrong for Gareth and his friends, when an unexpected storm, bringing heavy snow and temperatures of -40 degrees C, trapped Gareth and his expedition partners in life threatening conditions. Freezing cold, lost in the pitch black Alaskan night and afraid for their lives after an accident stranded them, they became hypothermic and developed frostbite. Finally managing to find their way to shelter, they realised that their ordeal was only just beginning. Gareth tells the story of the battle to regain the use of his feet, his gradual and painful return to exercise, and finally, triumphantly, recovering his health and regaining enough fitness to cross the line at Outlaw Full in Nottingham in 2021.
