Follow Professional Triathlete Holden Comeau as he shows us how to train for a Triathlon in the pool and how he prepares the morning of the competition. Training for an Open Water swim race is much different than training for a pool race. While you should train in the Ocean often, it is not always feasible so we adapt our swim training program by incorporating different techniques of kicking, swimming drills and variable speed swim training sets that will mimic the effort and distance of the Open Water swim in the pool. Whether you are a pro or a first time Open Water swimmer, preparing for a triathlon can help yourself and others avoid dangerous situations. Learn the details in preparing for a competition from a professional that can end up making the competition day a success!
