Brick #3

No access to a bike near the pool? Substitute running or a lower-body strength routine for cycling. Warm up with 5–10 minutes of easy jogging outside or on the treadmill. Repeat the set 1–4 times as your schedule allows:

» 5×200 swim with 15 seconds’ rest (descend 200 time from 1–5)

» 10 minute run or 2x(20 deep squats, 20 walking lunges, 10 burpees, 30 bicycle abs)

Use these sessions or adapt them to the facility where you work out. Spread the word to the Masters team, your training partners and even the staff. Maybe they will formally schedule time on the spin bikes or treadmills for a weekly group training session.
