Swimming-training for triathalon.

So I went swimming this morning to prep for my triathalon. It’s shameful. I can manage 4/5 lengths at best and then that’s with stopping in between. I have trouble breathing after that which is clearly smoking related but my arms ache also which I find peculiar after just 4/5 lengths.

For the triathalon, I need to be able to do 16 lengths in the open water. I’m a strong swimmer when I get going but distance isn’t my thing. If anyone has any tips. Please let me know.

In a few months, I hope I’ll look back at this and laugh because I’ll be so much fitter that 16 lengths won’t be an issue. 

Fingers crossed!
