Join A Local Swim Program
Most folks considering the "triathlon plunge" have the most concern about the swim segment of the event.
This isn't surprising given most of us are comfortable running or biking, but many of us haven't spent a lot of time in the water. According to this article from Everymantri.com, a local swim training program can be the best solution for learning better technique and improving times.
By connecting with coaching and other athletes, you can learn a variety of swimming strategies that will help you improve. Swimming is a lonely sport, so regularly getting together with a coach and other athletes offers camaraderie and accountability.
You might find an event or two through a local training program that will offer you the confidence in your swimming ability you need before taking to the open water of a triathlon event.
