Support for LONG Training Swims?
OK gang, benchmarking question here!
I have some big training swims (4, 6, 8 and 10-hour) on my calendar this summer in preparation for a Catalina attempt in August. Some of the swims I'll manage via OWS events locally, but for the 8hr one, I'm on my own to come up with how to best execute.
For your long training swims, how do you coordinate feed support- do you have a paddler with you the entire time? A boat escort? A combination of the two?
Inquiring swimming minds want to know! That, and my husband is wondering if he needs to start getting into rowing shape now....
