Had my first experience of OW swimming this week at Boundary Park in Cheshire and it was bloody brilliant. To my suprise I found the transition from pool to lake quite easy but for 2 things that I am hoping my fellow Forum Members can help with. 1) How the bloody hell do you sight? My direction was nothing short of Red Arrow-esq, weaving left and right. I'd never done sighting before and it completely threw my stroke off so I had to take 10 strokes then switch to breast stroke to check my direction. 2) Goggles that had been brilliant in the pool, Aqua Sphere Kayenne, were poor and letting in plenty of water. Does the cold water shrink my head or is there some other reason for this? I have my first oen water triathlon in Llandudno in 6 weeks so any help would be appreciated.
