Open Water Swim: Triathlon Swim Preparation for TriLaVie Team Members.
Open Water Swim at Lake Mission Viejo - fresh water preparation!
NOTE: This open water swim is for ALL TRILAVIE MEMBERS who are experienced open water swimmers now, and need minimal support. There will not be a clinic this evening.
RSVP! Please let us know you are coming by 8pm on Tuesday to get on the lake list!
Hydration: Please come to training well-hydrated, especially at night. If you know you are a salty-sweater, be sure to start taking electrolytes at least 1 hour prior to swimming. Need more guidance? Please review the Learning Components on Fueling and Hydration. Those are very simple but very important aspects of your training guide and are found in the Team Toolbox.

- You are welcome to arrive anytime after 5:30pm, but you'll need to be out of the water by 7:00pm SHARP as the lifeguards will close the area
- Most swim goals are EASY, going longer than you've done before!
