Friday Morning LATC/ AI RELOAD Ocean Swim Workout

Every week we take the 'element of surprise' tactic by laying out different routes and workouts to do in the water to spice things up and to keep you all on your toes.

The Goal: Our open water swims will make you a stronger, faster open water swimmer and help you to get an edge on the competition when you are racing. We begin with a dry-land warm-up targeting key core muscle groups that are crucial for swim speed and strength. The focus of this workout will be on longer swim workouts where participants will have the chance to practice their skills and increase overall strength and endurance. The workout will also include basic open water and triathlon skills such as entry at the start, handling waves, sighting and navigation, drafting, pacing, passing, exiting the water, as well as race strategy.

Swimming Requirements: Due to the inherent risks that come with open water swimming this workout is not meant for beginning swimmers, familiarity with basic open water swimming is important. Each participant should be able to swim a 100 yard free under 2:15 and should be able to complete 1000 yard swim without stopping.

For any changes or cancellations please read the weekly TriFit training reminder email. ALL SWIMMERS ARE REQUIRED to sign a liability form, after doing so you will be given a bright swim cap which will identify you. These caps are non-transferable and are only assigned when a release of liability is signed. If you transfer your swim cap, you will not be permitted to come back to this swim.

We meet at lifeguard Tower 26 at the corner of Ocean Park & Barnard Way at 6:15, workout begins at 6:30 sharp! Please bring few dollars to park in the adjacent parking lot or in nearby metered parking and come early, parking fills up fast. These workouts run from May through October.
