Keeping your wetsuit dry
Throw a wetsuit on and you’re going to swim faster, even without training in it. But no matter how flexible or form-fitting a suit may be, every wetsuit still creates arm resistance. Whether you have access to an open water swimming spot or not, make sure to do several swims in your wetsuit before race day. Your shoulders and triceps will thank you. Even just logging 500 yards at the beginning of a pool workout once a week makes a big difference.
