5 top tips for open water swimming/triathlon swim events:
1: Practice swimming the desired distance before the event. Also practice swimming whilst wearing your race wetsuit as this adds a level of buoyancy you may not be used to!
2: Make sure to practice your ‘sighting’ as well as usual f/c breathing in order to keep an eye on those markers/buoys.
3: Acclimatise yourself before the race to reduce the chance of hyperventilation.
4: Use Vaseline or an equivalent to stop chaffing/rubbing from swimwear or wetsuits
5: Purchase a decent swimming hat to improve your streamlining and prevent brain freeze!Rehabilitation from injury
