Tag Archives: open water swimming anxiety

Want to absolutely nail your first triathlon?

My first ever triathlon was a disaster. I experienced the classic open-water swim freak out. I was so petrified about ever doing another triathlon, that I immediately signed up for an ironman, as I thought that if I was going to tackle this swim, I would need to go hard or go home. That’s how scared I was. Fortunately, it worked. I’m not so afraid anymore.

And it turns out, that in that year of training for an ironman, I was given a handful of great advice. And this week I have shared some of my advice for beginner triathletes, and those attempting their first triathlon, over at Witsup.com (if you’re a female triathlete, check it out as it’s a fantastic resource for women getting into triathlon). So take a look, and hopefully you will benefit from my mistakes, and the advice that I was offered along the way.

And of course, I would love for you to share your tips and advice in the comments below!
