Reply To: Master Swim Program Present Swim Video Analysis


This article is very helpful.  Basically what it is saying is ‘practice!’  Practice in your current surroundings (if it’s not yet open water season) and then practice once it is open water season.  Thankfully by signing up for the video analysis, you are working towards tip #5!  And hopefully everyone got some good tips at the clinics.  At the second clinic, we even handed out note cards with tips to improve and drills to work on.

There are few ways to replicate the swim start of the IM.  However, there are plenty of opportunities to gain experience in big group mass starts.  In fact, I shared that Peasantman is doing a new point to point race/event.  What better way to gain this type of experience!

There is no magic pill for your swim confidence except practice!
