Originally the preserve of triathletes, open water swimming as a sport and supplementary training method is becoming popular in its own right and it’s easy to understand why.
Swimming in open water is not only great for developing physical and mental toughness; the open water environment also provides a fantastic challenge and a real “connection” with the natural elements, which is often missing in today’s high-tech world.
In this special report, we look at how swimmers and triathletes can use open water swim training to maximise both indoor and outdoor swimming fitness for any event and prepare for a major open water event.
