Last Minute Swimming Advice Needed!
I've added a race to my schedule (which is tomorrow) to avenge my DNS at the Orange County Olympic triathlon last Sunday. It's the Big Rock Olympic Triathlon out at Lake Perris. Now I know I probably shouldn't have done this, but I found myself going over the AG results from the last few years. And what I found was that assuming the same sort of field turns up tomorrow, I would have a fair chance at a podium spot in my AG if I can shave a few minutes off the swim.
Last week I did 1500 meters in 39 minutes. If I can get that down to 35, I would be in the thick of AG the race because I can make up some time on the bike and run. Again this is based solely on the last few years of results.
Does anyone have any simple advice or a trick that they use to keep their lower body "up" in a better position? Maybe I'm over-simplifying it and maybe I'm asking for too much, but I have nothing to lose by trying out a trick or two. I already Googled "How to keep your ass out of the water while swimming" but the search results where not too helpful.
