Unless you live in the south, where winters don’t get too cold, your triathlon and outdoor swimming season only lasts about half of the year. Cold air temperatures drive folks indoors to do their winter training and as a result swim sessions need to be adjusted. For some, this is a welcoming change to get to a place where you can see the bottom of the pool, build more rest into your practices, and work on technique, speed, or whatever else needs improvement. For others, the idea of leaving picturesque ponds, lakes, and oceans is hard to think about as wetsuits get put into storage. There is one thing all groups have in common though, and that’s working through the transition of pool to open water swimming, as there are some differences and adjustments that need to be accounted for.
With just a few short months left until lakes are warm enough to get into, here are some things to start focusing on or thinking about now to help with that transition back into open water swimming.
