Triathlon Europe ran a series of coach interviews from their Inside Triathlon magazine in the summer of 2013. This interview with highly accomplished Australian coach Darren Smith has some insight into his approach, with practical examples of how he implements his ideas across competing, improving swim performance, rest days and swim-bike-run balance.

Training Philosophy
I don’t know what too many others do because I don’t spend my days trying to work out what everyone else does. But I think I’m somewhere in between everything. I’m certainly less volume than, say, Sutton, I’m quite high on the technical refinement, and quite high on teaching people specifics about racing.

Darren is known for his technical approach to triathlon coaching, and his success with his private 'D-Squad'.
