Switching from tri to a swim race
I am a TI swimmer and triathlete. My goal for my tri swims is to leave the water breathing normally and enter transition and the bike relaxed...in other words I don't leave any excess energy in the ocean. I remember Terry saying no one ever won a tri on the swim leg, and this has proven true for me.
In two weeks I have a swim only OW one mile race and all of a sudden I am realizing that I have nothing to do after I reach the finish line but check out the food tent so I can afford to really push it. I know this sounds funny, but how do I do this when I have spent so much time training to cruise?
