Tuesday Tips

Look at the feet

If your triathlon features an open water swim, don’t bother lifting your head every 10-20 strokes to see where you’re going unless you plan to be leading the swim, or unless you’re stranded alone. Simply take a dead bead on the feet directly in front of you. Everyone’s going to the same place, after all. Every time you lift your head to sight, you must spend a bit of extra energy to counter your hips sinking as a result of lifting your head. You should also find goggles that allow you to see in front of you with minimal neck craning. So at your next race, spend less time looking for the buoys and more time looking at the feet in front of you.
