Mat Hudson con A Better Triathlon Swim: Everything you need to consider in training to make your next triathlon swim safer, stronger, and much more enjoyable. (English Edition)Triathlons - with a swim, bike, and run segment - are increasingly popular among ordinary citizens who may or may not have a background in any of those disciplines. To make a satisfying experience, these races should be somewhat challenging, and they should be fun. But they do require some level of fitness and skill in all three disciplines, not just one. Out of all three, the swim is commonly experienced as the most stressful and intimidating part of the race by many new and experienced triathletes alike. Swimming in open water, often in a wetsuit, surrounded by hundreds of other splashing and thrashing swimmers is nothing like swimming laps in lane at the local pool. The open water swim presents challenges in the body and the mind, with the wild aquatic environment, and with the race atmosphere itself.
This book, written by Mediterra International Head Coach, Total Immersion Master Coach, and open water swimming specialist Mat Hudson, walks you through all of those potentially stressful features and offers guidance on how to prepare for each one in training, to make your next triathlon swim safer, stronger, and much more enjoyable.
