Stop training like a cave man.

Do 40x100 in the pool, take a drink when needed.

On long (1+hr) OW swims, I attach a water bottle to my "please don't run my arse over" bouy. Neither add significant drag. See below:

Originally posted by brucemorgan Train like you plan to race. Obviously you're not going to be able to drink if it's a saltwater swim, and none of the lakes I've swam in during training have had water safe to drink to begin with. And what with all the peeing in the wetsuits threads, I think any swim with 2000 people is going to make the water undrinkable no matter what. Hydrate well before your long swim, then deal with it.

I like my answer from 5 years ago. QFT. LOLZ and all that.

I've never tried this for swimming- I just drink from a water bottle when I'm thirsty- but often when I'm skiing I put a Platypus collapsible water bottle in my pocket.

If I was going to stash a water bottle in my wetsuit that would be my choice. (Not sure if this is what you mean by hydration bag.) It's nice because when you're done with the water it doesn't take up much space.


That's a good idea!
I really think about a wetsuit that can carry a small water bag.
Have you ever see something like that?
I saw one in you tube, but it was for surfing!
It's not about train like a cave man, It's about fun with swimming.
I like to go little bit further away with peace of mind.
This one is cool, but carry something is difficult for me!
