Happy New Year! Are you totally psyched for 2018 and poised for world swimming domination, or just can’t be bothered? Follow our expert advice to help you train effectively for your 2018 swim goals, without getting overexcited, burnt out, scared or bored

Write yourself a plan and stick it on your wall – but make sure the plan is flexible. That way if you miss a session or don’t do what you planned to do one day, you won’t feel a failure. If you don’t fancy swimming, go for a run or go to yoga instead. Or have a night on the sofa!
