If the swim only accounts for 10-12% of your tri race, why does it make up 90% of your triathlon troubles and anxiety?
Is the swim a “necessary evil”, something that you just have to survive?
No matter how many hours you spend (or avoid) in the water, it never seems to get any easier and you just can’t breakthrough to the next level!
But your swim still lags behind.
Eventually it becomes so hard to force yourself to go to the pool. Why would you when you don’t feel like you’re making any progress?
