Anyone know of some good places for open water swims in the southern Alabama area or even western GA? Thanks for the help in advance!

Have you tried to find a local triathlon club? Try asking your local bike store about where the triathletes meet could be that some triathletes are part of their weekly ride or swim Masters at the local program (for a location, see:<--- although not exhaustive it does provide a good listing).

All else fails in finding another triathlete to help then any lake will do ...just need a friend with a kayak and a sense of humor. (It is rather comical to watch people swim in a crooked line in the open water )

Thanks for the response, I'll have to check that out. Unfortunately, my job limits me from participating in a club in the area. I'm hoping though that either through here, or finding out where groups around here swim, I can find some better sites to swim outside this spring. Most of the lakes that we've checked around here have stricter limitations on whether swimming is allowed or not.

MAPS is Meditation, Acclimatization, Practice, and Strategy, which are key for giving you the confidence and skills to execute the open-water swim in a triathlon well.

Stroke after stroke, my pace was pulling me out into the middle of the lake quickly. The cover seemed to be getting thicker. But still in the distance, the little boathouse was my lighthouse.

Some are getting a little OWS practice in, others are strategizing, the rest are just plain scared.
