DAVE’S TIPS OP­TI­MISE YOUR SES­SION

220 Triathlon Magazine - - TRAINING -

GET OUTDOORS

Per­form this ses­sion once or twice per week once open-wa­ter sea­son ar­rives. By race day, you’ll be com­fort­able in open wa­ter and ready for any­thing!

USE BACK­STROKE

Don’t just swim front crawl. While warm­ing up I like my swim­mers to in­clude 5 x 20secs of back­stroke to stretch out the chest and back, this is some­thing you can do in the pool, too.

PRAC­TISE SIGHT­ING

Use this work­out to im­prove your open­wa­ter sight­ing. Even in the off-sea­son when you’re in the pool, get used to prac­tis­ing a reg­u­lar sight­ing pat­tern on some of your lengths.
