Merry Christmas & Happy New G(rrr)
Yeah, kick only swim training is bloomin hard on legs. Do that for an hour plus and it would be a darn good workout!! :-) G

About This Thread

Maintained by Lalli
This thread is for those who are currently doing or want to do Furman type training, to share tips, log progress etc.

What is Furman? Simply, it's "Run 3 days, do non-running exercise for 2-3 other days". And that's it really!
