Triathlon Open Water Performance Class

As some of you might already know, I’m a big fan of Chicago Endurance Sports. I’ve had the pleasure of training under the direction of co-founder Mike Norman since I began my endurance sports hobby (obsession?) in 2004, and I can tell you that they offer some top notch programs – plus they’re a lot of fun, too!

Mike and crew have just introduced a new class on open water swim training that might be of interest to some of you. It’s a 3-week session that begins Wednesday, July 1st (6:15pm -7:30pm), and it covers topics such as:

– Stroke technique tips for Open Water vs. Pool
– Tips for practicing indoors
– Sighting skills & technique
– Equipment tips & tricks (wetsuits, goggles, etc.)
– Drafting technique and practice
– Starts
– Turns & negotiating buoys
– Exits
– Racing strategies
– Race specific training

One of the coaches is former World Champion Open Water Swimmer, Erica Rose. So it looks to be a fantastic program.

Check it out!
