In a new series of articles for 2016 Fiona Ford looks at how to incorporate training tools into your swim sessions, starting with the finis tempo trainer

Using technology and gadgets to improve your swimming can be especially useful if you complete the vast majority of your training solo. The Finis Tempo Trainer allows a swimmer to have a pacing guide as they swim, providing a double or triple beep at regular intervals, for example at the end of each length as you swim a 400m. The tempo trainer can also be set up to guide the swimmer’s stroke rate and rhythm, by emitt ing a single beep frequently in time with a pre-determined stroke rate. To use the Tempo Trainer in any of the three modes, firstly switch it on by holding one of the butt ons beneath the screen. Once it is switched on and beeping, with numbers in the display, it can be switched between the three modes and by holding down the top butt on on the device. To increase or reduce the display numbers, simply hold the left butt on to decrease the two digit display or the right butt on to increase the numbers.

Whatever your level of swimming, there is a challenge out there for you! If that challenge is a winter swimming competition, we have plenty of top tips and expert advice on swimming in icy water. But if the cold doesn’t really do it for you, we have destination reports from sunny Bermuda and the German lakes. In this issue we also profile four young BLDSA swimmers as well as catching up with open water swimming champions Keri-anne Payne and Cassie Patten.
