Of course, there is no real tip for swim-training up there. But I dont have a
clue either. Keep going till it ends, I guess.
Uh! Did that help? :-|
Looks like you need to offer more info. about your swimming ability,
background, etc., before anyone can give you applicable advice for an ironman
swim. For instance, have you ever raced a tri. of any length? Do you swim
regularly? By yourself? With a masters group? Do you own a wetsuit? What
kind? What are your goals? Etc.
The only thing I can help to reassure you with is that the swim is only a
very small part of ironman. You can make up for a bad swim in the other
events - but, you can't make up for a bad bike ride. For instance, my fiance
was out of the water in 59 minutes last year, while I swam a leisurely 1:13.
At the end, though, my finishing time was 1.5 hours quicker.
