#SWIMbikerun - Triathlon Training Tips for Swimming
A lot of you may know I am doing #myfirsttri this summer, at the end of July. It is a Sprint Triathlon just for women and considered a great one for new triathletes. Consequently I have begun swim training, having done nothing but play or water aerobics in the pool for oh…. maybe the last 35 years. Gulp. :-)
I have found the most awesome lady from Great Britain named Keri-anne Payne and Speedo has many short videos featuring her with various topics on YouTube. Here are a few favorites. She is amazing… swimming since she was 4 years old. Makes me wish I had never stopped!
Here she talks about how to eat right before your race or triathlon. She is marvelously pragmatic and focused on good common sense, which I like.
Breathing is completely thwarting me right now. I will be practising until I finally get it right so then I can focus on simply swimming laps!
Here’s a video where she shows what is in her kit bag… there are some helpful and surprising tips here, including drinking Coke to kill anything bacteria you might have ingested from open water!
Speedo has a Facebook page for triathletes at http://www.facebook.com/triathELITE with more videos, tips, and of course, gear promo. My swim cap and goggles are Speedo and I now have an actual proper training suit that is Speedo as well. Now if my breathing just matched my look in the pool! LOL!Apr 13, 2014
