Open Water Swim Training

POOL SWIMMING
There is a world of difference in open water swimming and pool swimming. Both play an important part in your training. The pool is the best place to learn to swim. Once you have the basics down, then you'll practice your technique and speed work drills, building you physically and mentally.

OPEN WATER SWIMMING
Now that you know how to swim, its time to take it to the outdoors. The difference in pool swimming and open water swimming is that you will have to get out of your comfort zone. Swimming in the pool is swimming in your comfort zone, clean clear water, no current, no blinding sunlight or the dark unknown water. Once most athletes hit the merky dark waters, they lose focus, mentally breakdown, panicing, then forget that they know how to swim. This is a common issue with athletes in general, not just the newbies either....
