I have been swimming in pool for about close to a year now. I'm able to swim freestyle 500m in 30 mins in easy pace. (I don't know if it is good or needs improvement).
The next 500m I intend to train my legs and shoulders for kick and pull.
So I do 50m kickboard - 100m pull until I reach 500m mark. The overall routine looks like this.
| Activity | Distance | Remarks | |-----------+----------+----------| | freestyle | 500m | 25m X 20 | | kickboard | 50m | 25m X 2 | | Pull | 100m | 50m X 2 | | kickboard | 50m | 25m X 2 | | Pull | 100m | 50m X 2 | | kickboard | 50m | 25m X 2 | | Pull | 100m | 50m X 2 | | kickboard | 50m | 25m X 2 |
I have been doing this routine since August 2017 - all days except Mondays.
After the swimming session, my right thigh is sore and there is calf pain as well. Why is this happening and more importantly how can I overcome this?
I'm training myself to become a triathlete and I'm learning swimming for this reason
