Train for the Water you will Race.
If the triathlon has an open water start, try practicing in a lake, rather than the pool. The closer you can mimic the conditions you will have at the race, the more prepared you will be on race day. If you are racing in the ocean, you may encounter choppy waves. Use shorter strokes to combat the chop, then long, efficient strokes once the water smoothes out. During your training, focus on your swimming technique; this makes the largest difference in your results on race day. Make sure your breathing, kick, body position, and arm rotation are in the proper form.
