Reply To: Returning to the water

Hi Coach,

I echo the feeling your coached triathlete said. The first time back in open water first like the first time I ever raced, but the more I did it, the more comfortable I started feeling. Keeping up with my dryland workout has definitely help, especially since I have more free time now and not rushing to the pool or gym.

I have also momentarily relocated to Florida and the beach is just across the beach, so I have been taking advantage of it and swimming after work (I just keep forgetting to turn on my OW track on my Garmin)

Has anyone gone to Lake Anna or nearby lakes?
