Flip onto your back to rest

If you run into trouble in the water, the only way to take a break is to flip onto your back and float. It’s easier in a buoyant wetsuit, but you can still float on your back without one using little effort.

Being proactive with your swim prep—both mental and physical—will minimize your risk of getting into any dicey situations during a race and make for a more enjoyable experience that will have you wanting to come back for more.
