Training Profile: Taking Advantage of those Open Water Opportunities

The open water swim training for triathlon is one of the hardest parts to prepare for because open water races just don’t happen often. So, I am very lucky that I have an open water swim race series that happens every year nearby.

This event is early enough in the season that it really prepares you for triathlon races without having to do the bike and run immediately afterwards.  This gives you time to really get the feel for what swimming in murky cold water feels like, plus getting use to fighting for position in the water is something you can’t really get ready for in a pool.
