Hi guys, any input on how to prepare for a couple of long distance swims would be great! I've signed up for 2 swims in the next 6 weeks. The first is Sunday week, a 6k swim in potentially choppy water. The next is 10k in hopefully calm water. The most I've swam before is around 2k in choppy OW and 5x1k in a pool so my aim is just to finish both.
I'm planning a number of long sessions both in the pool and in a nearby lake for the next few weeks. Do you think i should swim non-stop or do say 1k intervals? Or something else entirely? Should I be swimming every day? Normally I do 50m or 100m intervals which are pretty useless to me now I think... Or maybe 2 hours of short intervals would be better than steady swimming?
