Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation ( for another weekly endurance podcast. This week Coach P sits down with Eric Kenny from EK Endurance Coaching ( The topic is Swimming and Minimum Effective Dose...what to consider when constructing a season. As a baseline, know that Eric advocates for swimming 2x a week, year-round.

Key Talking Points:

  • Make small gains all the time.
  • Swimming is skill-based, so continuous application of those skill matter.
  • Choose a coached session (masters) so you have feedback from the deck.
  • Swim warm-ups are critical for improved overall training, as they help set up your stroke and prepare for a better workout.
  • Since we swim in a closed atmosphere, it’s the perfect "inclement weather" alternate activity to replace a run or bike.
